Test Center for German as a Foreign Language | English | French

Since 2018, the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld is official test center for TestDaF (Test for German as a Foreign Language), which can be taken on campus several times a year.

Additionally, our test center also offers two other tests on campus that were developed by the TestDaF Institute, TestAS (Test for Academic Studies) for international students who want to study in Germany, and onSET (Online language placement test German or English).

In the context of our Continuing Education Program of the Institute for International and Digital Communication (InDi), we also offer two other Tests: 

  • The TOEIC® Test (Test of English for International Communication) assesses English language competencies for the international workplace. It is recognized worldwide by over 14,000 organizations across 160 countries. A preparatory course is offered as part of our continuing education program. For more information on this test, please contact Martina Witt-Jauch. TOEIC is a registered trademark of ETS in the United States and other countries.
  • The DFP (Diplôme de français professionnel) of the French Chamber of Industry and Commerce (Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Paris Ile-de-France, CCIP) ideally prepares you for the Francophone workplace.  At the Environment Campus Birkenfeld, you can take the test at levels A2 and B1. For more information on this test, please contact Aloisia Sens.
