This course is a special offer for students who are enrolled at the University of Bayreuth and want to prepare for the DSH or TestDaF exam. However, all other students who wish to improve their language skills are also very welcome. Following this course, an enrolment for the examination at the University of Bayreuth is possible if you are currently enrolled here as a student.


The "Preparation for the DSH and TestDaF Exam" specialised course comprises 25 hours per week. Our weekly programme will be rounded off by additional offers like campus and city tours.

International students must acquire sufficient knowledge of the German language. Students who cannot provide language certification must take the DSH or TestDaF exam in order to study at a German university.

This course will prepare you for all four parts of the exam (reading comprehension and scientific structures, listening comprehension, text composition, and speaking). The instructor and the participants will help you to develop effective strategies to cope with each part. Mock exams will test your knowledge and familiarise you with the exam.
