Placement Tests/ OnSet

Placement tests / onSET

For all course participants who have previous knowledge of a language and have not acquired this knowledge in courses at the Language Center in the past two semesters, allocation to the appropriate course level is based on the results of our placement tests.

OnSet for Language diagnostics purposes

OnSet

For German and English, we offer standardized OnSet tests for language diagnostics purposes.
These tests are offered for English, for example, as part of the application process for study abroad and internships ( Promos scholarships).
The OnSet dates for the respective Promos scholarship application phase(s) can be found in unisono.
You can register for the test at the following email address: sprachenzentrum@spz.uni-siegen.de

On the official onSET homepage, you will find a sample test.

Please note: An OnSet test can only be repeated if it can be proven that a language course to improve language skills has taken place, or if a significant period of time has been spent in a country where the language is spoken.
