All prospective students planning to study in Germany need to prove their language skills. TANDEM Cologne is an official examination centre for all telc-exams, and also, since the beginning of 2016, for TestDaF-exams.
We offer German language exams for all levels, from Start Deutsch A1 to telc C1 Hochschule. You can find an overview of all examinations on offer here:
For telc B1 and B2, we offer six examination dates a year. Exams are always scheduled to take place around the end of our Intensive Courses K2, K4, K6, SK8, K10 and K12. For telc C1 Hochschule, we offer two exam dates per year.
Apart from that, we also offer TestDaf-exams six times per year. You can find more information about TestDaF-exams and exam dates here:
The actual Goethe-exams take place once a month at the Goethe-Institut. We at TANDEM Cologne are going to prepare our students for these exams in special preparatory courses here at our school, starting in 2017.
