No study in the USA without test (s)

Almost all colleges and universities in the USA require new students not only to have a university entrance qualification for admission to a Bachelor's degree, but also to have good results from a study aptitude test and an English test. For the English tests you can choose between the TOEFL and the IELTS; SAT and ACT are available for the study aptitude tests. You can take all tests in several locations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and all tests can be repeated as often as you like in order to achieve a better score. The first-year students (so-called freshmen) must in any case complete both tests (i.e. SAT or ACT and TOEFL or IELTS). For students who are already at a university (so-called transfer students), the TOEFL or the IELTS may be sufficient. We would be happy to advise you personally on this.
