What is UNIcert®?
UNIcert® is a nationally recognized, practice-oriented, and demanding training and examination system that is valid across languages and institutions.
UNIcert® gives the foreign language training that accompanies your studies a university-specific character by taking into account the special features of the participants, the objectives, and the working methods of the universities and technical colleges.
What advantages does UNIcert® offer?
One Certificate for all languages
All universities in Germany can join this system. 51 institutions already award UNIcert®
UNIcert® is an additional qualification that can be acquired by all students – regardless of their subject – parallel to their studies.
Small learning groups (max. 25 participants) and the flexibility of the system favour didactic innovations and a pleasant learning atmosphere.
The initiator and holder of the certificate is the Arbeitskreis der Sprachzentren e.V. (AKS).
As an umbrella organization with over 100 affiliated higher education institutions, AKS guarantees the high standard and further development of the UNIcert® training system. UNIcert® thus represents a valuable additional qualification on the European job market.
- clearly structured
Four achievable levels with clear goals and each of the same scope.
UNIcert® is comparable to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages.
