Requirements for ERASMUS students

Please note that for ERASMUS students the intensive courses are offered on level B1 and higher according to the Common European Framework of Reference. Thus ERASMUS students’ German level has to be at least A2. Your proficiency level will be assessed at the beginning of the course with the internationally recognized placement test OmSET (www.onset.de). Students whose level is under A2 have to pass a short individual oral test. ERASMUS students who cannot prove the A2 level won’t be admitted to the intensive course. This is part of TU Berlin’s agreements with its partner universities.
