Frequently asked questions regarding English courses for students in the natural sciences

1. Do I have to take the placement test if I have already taken the TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge, or other exam or if I know my language level from a different context, for example, my Abitur certificate or my certification as a skilled worker?

Yes, because these tests may attest to specific language level, but they are not a one-to-one fit with the language courses at the University of Potsdam.
