Measure your proficiency of a foreign language through the language testing services offered at the NYU School of Professional Studies. The test is offered in more than 50 languages and can be used by universities to grant academic credit or to grant you advanced placement in your language of study. The test also may be used for those who require it for professional purposes, such as teachers who need certification or verification of language proficiency; law enforcement officials who seek career advancement; or individuals who wish to establish linguistic competence for business objectives, such as a promotion or job placement. Please click on the language exam you wish to take. Some languages will only be offered online as we transition to a more convenient, revamped, remote-proctored platform. Soon all languages will be offered exclusively online. Results for online exams are issued within two to three weeks of the testing date.
