Language tests


  • Placement test: At the start of each semester, the THI Language Centre invites all students to take an English placement test. The result provides a classification along the guidelines of the CEFR.
  • Tests for a DAAD certificate: For a semester abroad students are often requiredto provide proof of their English language skills. Many partner universities of THI will accept a DAAD certificate. The language center can issue this certificate, based on the results of a 30-minute online test followed by a short interview. For more information please see information on study abroad on the sites of our International Office.
