Logo TestDaF

TANDEM Munich is an accredited centre for the preparation and holding of the TestDaF examination (Test of German as a Foreign Language). The TestDaF examinations take place six times a year. A valid passport or ID card and the examination fee of € 195.- are required for registration.

TestDaF examines the following four language skills in separate subtests: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writing, speaking. To pass the exam, a TestDaF mark of 3 (TDN 3) must be attained in all four skills. The "Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität" (LMU) in Munich, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) as well as the Technical College (HM Hochschule München) accept a TestDaF mark of 4 (TDN 4) in all four skills.

Many colleges in Germany also accept lower results (TDN 3). Every institution has its own entry requirements. Before applying for a study place at your college of choice, please enquire as to which TestDaF result is required. Many universities display these requirements on their website.

We are an accredited examination centre for TestDaF. At TANDEM Munich we offer you the opportunity to prepare for, register for and sit the TestDaF exam, all in the same place.
