TestDaF exam

The Language Centre of the TU Braunschweig is a member of the FaDaF (Fachverband Deutsch als Fremdsprache e.V.) and takes the TestDaF exam in addition to the DSH exam.


TestDaF is a centralised and standardised examination for German as a foreign language. It serves applicants to prove their knowledge of German for university studies. TestDaF is recognised both internationally and by all universities and colleges in Germany as a proof of language proficiency. German universities generally require TestDaF level 4 (TDN 4) in all four skills for admission. In some cases, universities also deviate from this and under certain circumstances a lower score may be sufficient for admission - this should be requested in good time from the individual universities. Like the DSH, TestDaF tests at level B2/C1, so that as a student applicant you should have reached a completed B2 level before registering for this test.
