Language Profiency Tests

When you apply for a scholarship, a place on an exchange scheme, a placement abroad, a travel allowance, or similar funding, you will generally have to submit a DAAD Assessment of language skills or a language proficiency report. You can download the relevant form from the pages of the International Office. Please make sure you contact the International Office in advance to find out which examination or proof of language proficiency you need!



The appointments can be found on a separate page.


  • TU Braunschweig students and staff are charged € 35.
  • Guests (including former students and staff) are charged € 75.
  • An additional fee of € 15 is charged for examinations by special appointment.
  • Participants who do not show up for the test date are not eligible for a refund.

In English, the number of language proficiency reports (Sample) requested is so high that we have developed a specific test procedure. (Click for information about the test procedure and preparing for the test)

The test dates are advertised on our portal site (direct link). This is also where you can register for a test date (bindingly).

Registration is only available online. TU and HBK students take priority over guests.

Tests always start at 9:00 a.m. and run until 1 p.m. On the day please bring the fee in exact change. The certificate will be handed out to you right after completing the test.

Please note that you can take the Language Proficiency Exam only once every 6 months. We will make an exception to this rule only if you have taken part in an English language course which might suggest that your language skills have improved.
