Language Screening

Before starting a preparatory German course, you will have a language screening to assess your language skills.

Depending on the test result you will be admitted to one of the German courses at learning levels I and II or to the VSiMINT course. Even if you have no knowledge of German, you can be admitted to one of the preparatory German courses for beginners. The result of our screening has no affect on your admission but it only serves for course organisation!

At the end of the courses at learning level I there is a placement test, which will decide on your learning level in the next semester.
