The English language proficiency test is available for students and non-students (see prices below). The German language placement test is currently available only for the students of the University of Tartu and it is free of charge.
NB! Due to the ongoing pandemic, many scholarship and exchange programs also accept other forms of language certificates.
Among those might be a short oral exam or, if the applicant has completed a German language course at the University of Tartu, a written statement by the German teacher of the course. For more information, please send an email to our DAAD visiting lecturer Marie-Luise Meier (email@example.com).
Free test: only available for students of the University of Tartu on the condition that the test is needed for applying for a scholarship and similar, which must include the involvement of the DAAD (including Erasmus+). The test will take place once a semester and only when at least five people have the interest to take part.
The following conditions apply:
The test is a C-test called onSET; it is possible to inform yourself about onSET on the official website.
The test must be taken in person - there is no online version (esp. important during the pandemic)
The free test must not only be for any scholarship but for a scholarship involving the DAAD (including ERASMUS); NB! Other organizations may have their own tests or only recognise tests that are in written form (such as the onSET test)
The test is usually conducted once or twice a semester; it is usually at least conducted once shortly before the deadlines of the DAAD scholarships (so no one will be without a test).
