Chinese Proficiency Tests HSK/HSKK

The Confucius Institute at the University of Cyprus (CI at UCY), as from September 2019 has become an official Test Centre in Cyprus for the Chinese Proficiency Tests.

The HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi), is an international standardized Chinese language test, organised by Hanban, to measure the ability of non-native Chinese speakers to communicate in Chinese in their daily lives, as well as in academic and working settings.

The HSK Test is divided into two independent parts: the written tests and the oral tests can be taken separately. The written tests include HSK Level 1, HSK Level 2, HSK Level 3, HSK Level 4, HSK Level 5 and HSK Level 6. The oral tests include HSKK (basic), HSKK (intermediate) and HSKK (advanced). All oral tests are recorded.
