TestAS: Test for foreign students

TestAS is a central, standardised study ability test. It tests cognitive abilities that are particularly important for studying. TestAS is designed for applicants who want to complete undergraduate studies at a university in Germany.

TestAS is developed by ITB Consulting GmbH and offered by the Gesellschaft für Akademische Studienvorbereitung und Testentwicklung e. V. (Society for Academic Study Preparation and Test Development).

What advantages does TestAS provide?

  • The university can select students who have the necessary qualifications for the offered study program.
  • The participants get to know typical requirements of the study program they are aiming for.
  • With the test result, potential students realistically assess whether they can successfully complete their studies at a German university.
You can find out on the websites of the universities which institutions take TestAS into account when admitting foreign students. Please inform yourself there or at the International Offices about the specific admission requirements for the study programme you wish to study.
