Foreign students who wish to study at a German University need to prove their knowledge of German. Usually, language skills on at least level B2 are requested by Universities.

TestDaF tests the language skills reading, listening, writing and speaking. This way it can be verified that the test participant has the required language skills to be able to participate in scientific and academic fields of study and work.

 The results of TestDaF are divided into three levels: TDN 3, which is about B2.1 Level, TDN 4, which is about B2.2 - C1.1 Level, and TDN 5, which is about C1.2 Level. Students who wish to take the TestDaF should therefore have passed a German course of at least Level B2.
