Frequently Asked Questions

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

1. Do I have to take the placement test if I have already taken the TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge, or other exam and know my own language level?

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

2. Who should I contact if I have already completed English or other language courses at another institution of higher education and would like to have these courses recognized?

Please contact the examination board for your (major) subject. You can find further information and an application form on this web site.
