Orientation test for choosing a study programme

In order to apply for a place to study at a university in Baden-Wuerttemberg, a certificate of participation in the so-called orientation test (OT) or study interests test (SIT) is required.

In this orientation test, your interests and aptitudes that are relevant to your desired studies and profession are scientifically assessed and explained to you in detailed feedback. This means: You will receive information about which study programme or profession suits you best.

Important: The certificates of participation of both tests do not show any test results in terms of content, only that you have taken the test.
