The result of TestAS is only taken into consideration in the selection processes for the programs of Medicine and Dentistry. For all other programs, the TestAS can be uploaded in place of the Study Orientation Procedure during the application, but does not have any influence on the selection process or allocation of study places

Advantages for your application at the University of Freiburg:

  • Investing the time and effort to take TestAS will be regarded as an important criterion by the selection committee, because it speaks for your motivation to study at the University of Freiburg! A good score on the test also demonstrates that you have the necessary skills for a course of study in Germany.
  • The test familiarizes you with the requirements of a course of study in Germany and helps you to better evaluate yourself and your abilities. In addition, you receive comprehensive feedback after completing the test and are shown where you stand in comparison to other applicants.
  • TestAS is also recognized as a student orientation procedure at the University of Freiburg (for more information, see “Student Orientation Procedures” above).

Important information:

  • Taking TestAS is voluntary for prospective students of the University of Freiburg! You can also decide for yourself whether or not you wish your score to be submitted to the University of Freiburg.
  • We do not recommend that you participate in a language screening (onDaF, online placement test for German as a foreign language) if you are only applying for a study space at the University of Freiburg with TestAS.
  • The test does not take the place of other prerequisites for admission to studies at the University of Freiburg, such as language certificates or higher education entrance qualification.
  • Applicants to master’s programs, short-term studies (free movers, exchange students), and doctoral programs do not need to take TestAS.
