Placement tests

For some courses, participation in a placement test is required. The placement tests in English and other languages are used to compare the skills of students and to divide the students into the appropriate course levels. If necessary, interviews may be held to help determine the level.

With placement tests in mathematics and accounting, first semester students with prior knowledge may directly qualify for courses in the 1st or 2nd semester. By passing one of these placement tests, students are entitled to participate in subsequent courses.

Students without any prior knowledge or with minimal prior knowledge need not take part in a placement test. They can take a compact course before the start of the semester or a preparatory course during the semester. In the compact courses, knowledge is refreshed and verified with a final exam. This is comparable to the placement test.
