Several Study Abroad programs offered by the University of Vechta’s partner universities require students to submit a certificate of English-language proficiency. If you are not in the possession of an official certification such as the TOEFL or the IELTS, you can register to take the DAAD language proficiency test in the Language Centre.
As of April 2021, the Language Centre will administer the DAAD Language Proficiency Test online in conformity with the COVID-19 hygiene regulations of the University of Vechta. The exam can be administered on Fridays. The exam results will be sent to students as a .pdf document.

The DAAD test is divided into three parts and measures your proficiency in reading, writing and oral interaction:
- Reading skills will be assessed using a standardized language test. (1 hour)
- Spoken English will be evaluated in a fifteen minute conversation with the test administrator, based upon a one to two page text from a magazine or newspaper. The student will also be asked to discuss her/his future academic plans. (30 minutes)
- Writing skills will be evaluated based upon a 250 word essay in response to a set of questions. (30 minutes)
The DAAD test is divided into two time blocks of one hour each. There is a 30 minute break between the blocks.
