Participation rules

Please read our Terms and Conditions for Language Courses for more information on rules and regulations for participating in a language course offered at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.

Placement tests


If you have no previous experience in German, you do not need to do a placement test.

If you have any previous experience in German, you must do a placement test in our Language Lab before you can register. This is a mandatory requirement. We currently offer tests for the levels A1, A2 and B1.

Placement tests are available during our regular opening hours in our Language Labs (18 01 014 in Kleve, 04 01 315 in Kamp-Lintfort). Opening hours can be found in Moodle (Kleve or Kamp-Lintfort).

For technical reasons, non-students are unable to do a placement test at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.

English and other languages

Placement tests in English and other languages are not required to sign up for a course. These areas currently rely on self-assessment. For more information or assistance, please see the quick link to various online placement tests or contact us at
