Opening Hours Testing Center

No prior registration required. You can come at any time during the opening hours, but please note that the latest starting time is one hour before to ensure that you have enough time for the test.

We issue our own certificates, which are accepted by many exchange programs such as ERASMUS and for most master applications. However, should you need a specific form (such as DAAD, bvmd, or forms by your exchange program) please bring a printout of this to the office hours.
