Our exams

Do you need certification or a diploma for work, study or a visa? Would you like to know the level of your knowledge of German? The Goethe-Institut offers internationally recognised proficiency. Registeration for an exam is not subject to attending a language course at the Goethe-Institut. You can register as an external candidate as long as you think that you meet the language requirements. The overview of Goethe-Institut examination and course levels can tell you which exam is designed for which level. The Goethe-Institut Glasgow offers the certificate exams twice a year: in January/February and in June.

- We offer online registration.

- If you have already taken a course or exam at the Goethe-Institut you will require your customer number for online registration (can be requested from the Language Office).

- The B1 and the C2 exam are modular exams. Modules don't have to be taken all at once. Registration for selective parts cannot booked online. Please send us the completed form by e-mail or post. The form can be completed electronically.
