Placement Procedure

Before you can register for an English language course, you are required to complete a 25-minute online placement test (C-test). If you are interested in the design of a C-test, you can take a 5-minute trial test.

Once the test is complete, you will receive an automatically-generated email informing you about your score and associated level. While you can initially only register for courses at this level, your score may be adjusted by up to 7 points after speaking to the coordinator, Dr. Fabienne Quennet. Please be aware that your result, otherwise, is final.

Important: If you would like to attend a general English courses (non-academic or academic), you will need a valid score on the general-English placement test. If you would like to attend a course of English for Specific Academic Purposes, you will need a valid score on the discipline-specific placement test. Please choose the test that corresponds with your degree program and the course you are interested in. If you would like to attend a preparatory English course for holders of vocational qualifications, please complete the general English test.
