TOEFL

The TOEFL iBT (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is the English proficiency test most widely accepted in North America and Asia, but is also generally accepted worldwide.

Since July 2006, the University of Mannheim has been an official test center for the TOEFL internet-based test (iBT).

In particular, the test evaluates language proficiency in the academic field.

Important Information

TOEFL News

Since April, you also have the possibility to take the TOEFL iBT® test as well as the GRE® General Test from the comfort of your home. Nevertheless, it is still possible to conduct the TOEFL iBT® test at a test center nearby in connection with a corona safety concept. This offer, however, involves increased costs, for which reason the TOEFL® test now costs US$ 5 more – in other words, US$ 260 instead of US$ 255.
