The HF Exam (Formerly AP Exam)

The HF Exam is the examination completing the Programme of Language Training for Higher Education (Hochschulspezifische Fremdsprachenausbildung).

Under the old Examination Regulations (before Winter Semester 2013/14), it was known as the  Allgemeinsprachliche Prüfung, / "AP Exam").

It is accepted as equivalent to UNIcert II  for all Viadrina degree programmes. The only difference is that for the HF you do not have an oral examination unless you fail ONE part, whereas for UNICert examinations, all students are given an oral exam. (UNIcert II is offered at the Viadrina for other languages but not  English; we  do, however, offer UNIcert III in English.)

Via the links on the left you will find information on various aspects of the HF English Examination. In particular, all candidates for the examination should read the important general information in good time before the exam.
