Dates in the summer semester are held monthly from May to July. There are no appointments during the lecture free time.
The dates in the winter semester take place one to three times a month from the end of October to mid-February.
A skill-based test must be taken in order for ZEMS to issue an English language certificate. This test consists of three parts:
- Reading comprehension
- Oral interaction
You will take the test on your own computer on the date indicated on your booking. After successful registration, please visit the test area on ZEMS-Moodle . Please read the important information and follow the instructions on the ZEMS-Moodle before the test date.
Please note the following requirements:
- Check that audio and video work well on your device.
- Allow about undisturbed 80 minutes to take the test.
- Work independently! If you do research on the Internet or with other tools, you will lose valuable time.
- Plagiarism will result in no language certificate being issued.

Information on "International English language tests ", for example TOEFL or IELTS, can be found on their websites. Please find out which language certificate you need for your application.
