“Made in Germany” is a synonym for quality all over the world. A degree from a German university gives foreign students a clear edge over their competitors in the international job market. Compared to other countries Germany offers top quality and ideal research opportunities, and studying there is relatively inexpensive.

Invest in your future today: We at the Humboldt-Institut advise and assist the students of our German courses who wish to pursue higher education in Germany.

The TestDaF (Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache = German as a foreign language) is a standardized exam providing evidence of German language proficiency and often serves as a linguistic requirement for foreign applicants who wish to study at a German university. Our TestDaF preparation courses with 30 lessons per week are especially designed for students who wish to prepare for this demanding language exam. The students learn test-taking techniques, build vocabulary and essential phrases for conversation and practice in realistic exam situations.
The minimum requirement to attend this course is German skills at the C1.1 level. In our Berlin City and Constance course centers, you can take a test to determine your German level prior to the course for a small fee, which will be deducted from the course fee once you sign up.
