    Please, see the Merkblatt Sprachniveau for further information on the command of German required for ERASMUS studies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
  • As an alternative to the C-Test, proof may be submitted that one of the following language examinations has been passed:
    • the Zentrale Oberstufenprüfung or the Kleine or the Große Deutsche Sprachdiplom, or
    • the DSH (Deutsche Sprachprüfung zum Hochschulzugang), or
    • the TestDaF
