DAAD Language Certificates


The Language Center issues DAAD language certificates for all languages taught here. DAAD certificates are often required for applications abroad (study visits, internships). To find out which language level is required and whether the DAAD language certificate is accepted, please contact the respective programme, the chosen university or the institution offering the internship. Detailed information and advice on stays abroad can be obtained from the International Student Affairs department.

On the DAAD homepage, you can view the forms for the language certificate in advance: https://www2.daad.de/medien/ausland/dokumente/daad-sprachnachweis_deutsche.pdf.
