Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences is a licensed telc partner and telc University Competence Center. For international applicants, we offer two exams specifically: telc B2 and telc C1 for university admission (telc C1 Hochschule).
To prepare for the telc testing format, we recommend looking at the information about each exam on the telc website, and to try out the training test (free of charge). The training test will help you understand the exam format and the exam procedures of each exam. And the answer sheets about both reading and listening comprehension allow you to find out whether you are ready to take the exam. If you take the training test, please make sure that you have 4 hours' time at your disposal.
Here are the links to the respective telc websites:
