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.
 
UCY students have the opportunity to enroll in Chinese language classes as an elective course for 5 ECTS or take the course as en extra curriculum activity with a 50% discount on the fees.
