    Anyone wishing to attend an intensive language course at the Studienkolleg Mittelhessen has to take a placement test first. We use the test to determine the current level of your proficiency in the German language. The goal is to get you started in the language course that is appropriate to your real proficiency level. Language certificates that you may have already earned from other institutions are not relevant for a placement in our course system.

    The placement test consists of:
    - multiple choice (35 minutes)
    - a text composition (20 minutes)

    There is no oral test.

    Please note that the only purpose that the result of the placement test serves is to place you at the right level within our course system. No results will be issued in certificate form to be presented at other institutions.

    In order to be able to take the placement test, you need to register online.

    We charge a fee of €15.00 for the placement test, which is to be paid via bank transfer.
