Language Exams

In addition to its extensive range of courses, the Language Center of the University of Vienna also offers examinations. Within the framework of German courses, learners can take the ÖSD examination (Austrian Language Certificate ÖSD – Österreichisches Sprachdiplom Deutsch – levels A1 to C2).

As part of the foreign language services offered, clients can choose between the following examinations: language competency examinations (e.g. for Erasmus) and the university entrance qualification examination for English.

Additionally, the Language Center offers preparation courses for standard English certificate examinations like CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System). While the Language Center organises these preparation courses, the examinations are conducted at the British Council.
