English level test after application at level B2

The prerequisite for studying at ATAFOM University is the minimum language level ALA-B2. Therefore, the ATAFOM English Level Test B2 is carried out after applying to study at language level B2. This language test queries the current linguistic competence in the field of English and is used to assess the current and actual language level of the applicant. The duration of this language test is 20 minutes.

“If the language test at the minimum language level ALA-B2 has not been achieved, the applicant must attend an intensive online basic language course over 2 semesters before starting the bachelor’s degree.”
