Students with a foreign qualification for university entrance (e.g. High School Diploma, Leaving Certificate, A-Levels) must provide proof of their German language proficiency before enrolling at a German university. Find a list with the accredited German langauge examinations of Augsburg UAS here.

The most popular language test is the TestDaF, which is available at Augsburg UAS.
