The goal of an Integration course is the successful passing of the final exam. By passing the DTZ, you show that you have reached one of the main goals of the Integration Course. The test certifies your level A2-B1 German language skills and is suitable as proof of language for citizenship in Germany.
DTZ language exam
- Final exam for integration course
- Registration possible for students of our integration courses only
- Graded on scale (A2–B1)
- In combination with the “Life in Germany” test comprises the “Zertifikat Integrationskurs”
In the DTZ language exam, two language levels are examined simultaneously. The test offers a analysis of your language skills in various areas at the A2 and B1 levels. Though the test is graded on a scale, BAMF requires an overall B1 result to fulfill their language requirements. After also passing the “Life in Germany” Test, you receive the "Zertifikat Integrationskurs".
- The DTZ certificates are sent to us approximately four weeks after the test date and are available for pick up from our front desk.
- Should you receive an A2 certificate for the DTZ, you can apply to the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge - BAMF) to retake the test with an additional 300 teaching units of lessons to review. The test is included as long as you have regularly taken part in the integration course.
