DAAD language certificate

DAAD test - registration and test format

It may be possible for a DAAD language certificate to be issued on the basis of a course you have already successfully completed at the SZHB. Your certificate will state the level achieved in the course. This is the course of action we recommend when you have already done a language course in the SZHB or when you have not yet reached the level you are required to achieve on the DAAD language certificate.

Alternatively, you can take a test in the SZHB. You must first take the online Dialang diagnostic test and then send your test result to the English team. Please also include the level you are required to prove with the DAAD language certificate.

If you do not need to do any further preparation, you can then continue immediately and choose one of the dates available and we will then register you for this test. You will receive email confirmation that you have been registered for this test and a request to pay the test fee of €20.

Our DAAD tests are currently being held online and require you to:

  • read an academic text (600 words) and summarise the key points in 180-200 words
    time allowed: 60 minutes;
  • discuss the topic presented in this text in an oral exam (time allowed: 15 minutes)

A maximum of 3 candidates can be tested on each test date.

Your DAAD language certificate will be issued shortly after the test.

Test fee

The test fee for the DAAD language certificate is €20. Please make sure you have the exact amount in cash.

The test is offered only for students at the Hochschule Bremen, Hochschule für Kunste in Bremen and the Universities of Bremen and Oldenburg.
