You will usually get it back on the same day. However, if there is a large number of students taking the test, the marking may take longer. Uncollected certificates will be discarded after 3 months.

Who are the tests for?

The tests are for students at the University of Konstanz who are planning a semester abroad or an internship as part of their studies here. The test is NOT for students studying English as their main subject; they should ask any lecturer from an SLI course they have successfully passed to fill in their form.
We do not offer language tests to students studying at other institutions.

The university abroad has asked for IELTS, TOEFL, CAE etc. Can I take one of these exams here?

No, the university is not an examination centre for external exams like these.

The university abroad has asked for level B1/B2/C1. Does this test give me a level like this?

Yes, we specify a level on your certificate.

Do I need to pass every part of the test?

You can’t pass or fail the test, it’s designed to assess your level of English.

I did a test 6 months ago and now I need another English language assessment, do I need to do another test?

No, we keep the tests for 2 years. If you need another certificate during that period, you don’t need to do another test; we can write you another one based on your previous results. It’s a good idea to keep a copy of your certificate as this makes it easier for us.

I need a different form for the university I’m going to. Do I need to do a different test?

Not usually, but you should contact me beforehand/send me a copy of the form so I can check if our test meets the requirements.

Is there a limit to how many students can take the test?

Yes. There is usually a limit of 18 participants. The test in January has a limit of 40 participants.
