Entrance Test - Example

Requirements for Application

a) Current conditional letter of admission for studies at the University of Kassel.

b) Certificate of successful participation in a B2 language examination (Goethe-Institut or TELC) or alternatively proof of successful and complete participation in a B2 level language course with grades in listening, reading, speaking, writing and grammar. Please note, certificates of participation without grades are not accepted.


The entrance test consists of two parts:
Part 1:
Listening Comprehension
Reading Comprehension
Part 2:
Free Text Production

Both parts must be passed individually in order to pass the test successfully.


The entrance test determines:
a) whether the participants have at least an active B2 level, and
b) which preparatory course (M1=B2 level, M2=C1 level) the candidate fulfils the necessary language requirements.


Result B2 level -> M1 course: You take a preparatory course at level B2. At the end of the semester you will write a final test. If you pass the final test, you continue learning in the M2 course the next semester and write the DSH examination at the end of your second semester.

Result C1 -> M2 course: You take a preparatory course at level C1. At the end of the semester you will write the DSH exam.

Failed: Unfortunately, the necessary level for participation in one of our courses was not reached. It is strongly recommended that you attend intensive language courses (approx. 20 hours/week) for your level, e.g. at a private language school.
