Placement Test

To ensure that you are placed in the correct level of language class, you are required to first write a placement test.

Placement tests are offered in the following languages:

  • Arabic*
  • Chinese
  • German as a Foreign Language
  • English
  • French
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Swedish
  • Spanish
  • Turkish

If you have previous knowledge of the language but register and try to participate in a beginner’s course, you will most probably be removed from the course – possibly even a few weeks after the course starts.

* The placement test in Arabic does not take place on Moodle but on ZOOM on the following days:

- Monday, 15th April from 10:00 to 10:34

- Tuesday, 16th April from 16:00 to 16:45

Please note that you can take the placement test only once per semester. Your placement test of the previous semester is still valid.

You only have to take a placement test if you have not previously attended a language course at the Language Resource Center in the required language or if you wish to attend a language course on the next UNIcert level.

Beginner courses do not require any placement test.

You are only allowed to register for courses corresponding to the score you achieved in the placement test.
