What is UNIcert®?

  • UNIcert® is a university-specific programme of education and certification for languages. All levels offered by the ZFA are listed in the right column.
  • UNIcert® offers action-oriented language instruction that can be applied in academic and work contexts (reading and listening comprehension, written and oral production).
  • Currently, there are around 50 recognized institutions in Germany, which offer UNIcert®.
  • UNIcert® certificates are recognized throughout Germany and the neighboring countries. They can be used when changing a degree course and place of residence or when applying for studies and internships abroad.
  • In many cases UNIcert® is a less expensive alternative to international standardized language tests.

Who can take the test?
