The UNIcert® Foreign Language Certificate is a uniformally regulated certification of foreign language competency in and beyond Germany, which is relevant for future graduates. Students can acquire the UNIcert® certificate at universities and higher education institutions as an additional qualification, alongside their studies.
For over 25 years, the AKS, the German association of language centres, language teaching institutes and institutes of foreign languages, has been the official holder of the UNIcert® seal of quality. This seal of quality is based on the framework agreement of leading German higher education institutions, and is scientifically supported by the UNIcert® executive committee.
The appeal of UNIcert® is particularly highlighted in the following points:
The comprehensibility and comparability internationally: The multilingual UNIcert® certificate provides information on the language skills, and can be used internationally due to the correspondence to the CEFR.
The high level of language training: This is achieved through the interlocking of the language learning process with the test contents and competencies, as well as rapid progression.
The embedding of a curriculum relevant to students in task-based lessons: Language acquisition and application of both professional and key competencies in the foreign language.
