TU/e Language assessment
The Diagnostic Test of English is offered to students to assess their level of English. Often the level students have at the beginning of the studies (pre-university grade, IELTS, TOEFL, etc.) is not a very precise predictor for a student’s actual ability to successfully use English at university. This is because many of these tests are not based on academic English and because a student’s ability can change over time. The aim of the diagnostic test is to supply a student with advice concerning the most appropriate English course to take.
From the academic year 2014-2015 on, students who do not do a diagnostic test through their faculty and wish to enrol in an English course are strongly advised to first complete the online diagnostic test 9ST00, registration via Osiris. With the appropriate course advice, students may then enrol in the course that has been advised.
