The RWU Hochschule Ravensburg-Weingarten is a licensed TestDaF Test Center. TestDaF checks whether a candidate's level of German is sufficient for pursuing higher education in Germany. Reading, listening, writing and speaking are tested. The candidates are asked to read and write about scientific topics and prove that they are capable of communicating in everyday life at a university (listening and speaking). Hence, intermediate or advanced knowledge of the German language (B2/C1 level according to CEFR) is recommended.
The test takes about 4 hours. It is either completed with pen and paper or on a computer. The TestDaF certificate is valid for an unlimited period of time and is accepted by all universities and universities of applied sciences in Germany. Each universitiy stipulates its own requirements for admission.
