ÖSD certificates

  • ÖSD exams are internationally recognised certificates and serve as proof of your knowledge of German (e.g. for the labour market, for universities and other educational institutions, for official procedures such as citizenship, visa, residence permit, etc.).
  • They are handled according to Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and are pluricentric, i.e. follow the standard language versions of the three German-speaking countries Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
  • All 4 language skills are tested:
    • Reading, 
    • listening comprehension, 
    • in writing, 
    • oral expression.

FOR WHICH EXAM
HOW DO I DECIDE?

Your choice of exam depends on the reason you need the certificate. Medical and administrative staff need a certificate at the level of B2 oz. C1.

Students (English classes) need mainly B1 and B2 level certificates. If you are studying in German, you need a C1 level. In the table you can see which universities recognise which level of the ÖSD exam.

To obtain a residence permit (third-country nationals) and if the employer requires a minimum level of German language skills, an A1 or A2 certificate is required.

You can also put your knowledge to the test:

  • via an online placement test
  • or at our headquarters, where we will be happy to advise you free of charge.
