Register for language examinations before terminating your enrollment

You can still take a UNIcert® examination at the Foreign Language Center even if your studies have been completed in the meantime: However, you must register for the examination before terminating your enrollment. This means that you can still take the UNIcert® examination, including any repeat examinations after you have terminated your enrollment.

Notification of results

As soon as the UNIcert® examinations have been assessed and graded, you will receive your examination results by post from the Foreign Language Center. Your examination results will also include individual grades. This official document is usually sufficient as proof for master’s degree applications, academic credit or similar. Certificates are issued at a later date. If possible, the language teaching team will inform you in advance by email whether you have passed the exam. You can then collect the certificate in person on presentation of your ID card at the information desk of the Foreign Language Center during the current opening hours.
