An assessment English is meant to determine your language proficiency and consist of an oral test, a written test and a computer-based test (QPT). You can use the assessment results to prove that you meet the needed language requirements for an exchange or for your master application. You can also use it to as proof of your language proficiency for your employer. Please make sure to always check if this test is accepted by your study programme/faculty.
The next online English assessment will take place on:
- Oral test: week of 17 April, several time slots available (online via ZOOM)
- Written test: Wednesday 19 April, 13.00-13.45 hours
- Quick Placement Test (QPT): Wednesday 19 April, 14.30-16.00 hours
- Deadline: 10 April 2023
Please note: There are fixed dates and times for the written part and the Quick Placement Test. You only need to make an appointment for the oral part; you will automatically be registered for the other two parts.
An online assessment consists of a 15-minute oral test with a teacher (via Zoom), a written test of 45 minutes (via Canvas) and a computer-based test (Oxford Quick Placement Test) that you do on your own computer. All parts of the assessment are online; you do not have to come to campus. After taking the assessment, you will receive a level statement that contains information about your current level (according to the Common European Framework of Reference). A distinction will be made between your oral and written skills.
Note: The result of the QPT test will not be communicated directly eith the participants. They are evaluated by our teachers and used as a reference to establish final grades for written and oral skills.
If the assessment shows that you have not yet reached the level that is required, you could decide to register for a language course.
You need to take an assessment in case you need a level statement or certificate indicating your level in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). You can use the assessment results to prove that you meet the needed language requirements for an exchange or for your master application. You can also use it to as proof of your language proficiency for your employer. Please make sure to always check if this test is accepted by your study programme/faculty.
An English assessment costs € 85 and is valid for one year. After all, your language proficiency might have improved or deteriorated after one year. If you participate in an English language course within a year, 50% of the assessment costs (€ 42,50) will be refunded within 3 weeks after your course has started. Keep in mind that we do not offer all levels, and that we reserve the right to cancel a course if the required minimum number of participants is not reached.
The LTC organizes English assessments twice per year on set dates. The exact dates are published per period, but they generally take place in November and April of each year
You can register for an English assessment through the online schedule and select one of the available time slots. Please note that the schedule is only visible during the period in which you can register. For the written part and the Quick Placement test you don’t have to book an appointment, as these take place on a set date and time.
After choosing a time slot of your choice, you will need to pay for the test to finalize your registration. The payment needs to be in before the registration deadline. If we have not received your payment in time, your appointment will be canceled. You need to pay for the assessment via our web shop.
Dyslectic students can get extra time to complete the written test. To arrange this, you need to contact the LTC via email before the deadline of registration. You will also have to send a copy of your official statement of special needs.
