English Language Certificates

English Language Certificates are only issued after registration in person.

We test reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to measure the ability to communicate successfully in an academic setting. A short essay on a general topic (250 words) has to be written. The test takers should also be able to talk about their study subject fluently. The test is about 2 hours long.
