DSH - German Language Test for the University
Exam for University admission
People who wish to study at the university level, take their degree or do a doctorate in Germany have a lot of things to see to.
First they have to file an application for university admission, secure the financing, and arrange all the other formalities. But that's not all. In addition, they must take an examination to demonstrate their knowledge of German, named DSH, the Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang ausländischer Studienbewerber.
Most higher-education institutions expect foreign students to sit the DSH as a requirement for admission to a full course of academic study.
Why is this necessary?
With the DSH, the point is not general knowledge of colloquial speech. The DSH tests one's understanding of German as a formal language, with all of its technical peculiarities, which one has to face in lectures, seminars and scientific literature at university.
This is a sort of German which differs a lot from the normal, colloquial, spoken German. In the DSH-examination one must prove one's ability to use the language in studies requiring a kind of German necessary for reading and listening comprehension, writing and speaking.
Exam - preparation courses
Our school helps with the preparation for both DSH and TestDaF. In our intensive courses for the exam-preparation DSH/TestDaF all elements of the respective examination will be presented, analyzed, and afterwards, intensively trained.
We also help with the formalities of the enrolment process and with the decision as to which examination would be best in each individual case.
