ÖSD - International German language certificate
The St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences is an exam centre for the Österreichisches Sprachdiplom Deutsch (ÖSD). ÖSD certificates are state-accredited and internationally recognised.
The certificate is available at five different levels:
- Grundstufe Deutsch (A2)
- Zertifikat Deutsch (B1)
- Zertifikat Deutsch für Jugendliche (B1)
- Mittelstufe Deutsch (C1)
- Wirtschaftssprache Deutsch (C2).
The diploma is awarded after candidates have successfully passed a one-day exam held at the university. The exam puts a special emphasis on communicative competence and takes into consideration the regional diversity that exists in the German-speaking world.
