Placement Tests

A placement test for German is often required and is, in some cases, a prerequisite to registering for a German course. Placement tests in other languages are not required.

DAAD English Exam

As a Rhine-Waal University student you are offered the chance to acquire a DAAD English Language Certificate. This certificate is usually needed when applying for studies and scholarships abroad which are organized by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) and require a certain proficiency level in English.

The DAAD exam tests your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. For students at Rhine-Waal University of Applied sciences, the exam is free of charge.
