Additional online tests

This page provides links to a range of online assessment tests designed by German universities, public bodies and private institutions.


Most of the tests listed are free to use and are typically split into a more general interdisciplinary section, which is designed to help you find the right subject to study or career path to follow, and a more subject-specific section where you will find tests on particular degree programmes or courses of study. The two tests at the bottom of the page are for students considering joining a teacher training programme or wanting to assess their suitability for a career in teaching.
