HSK Chinese Proficiency Test

Test Dates

The Confucius Institute of Rutgers University hosts the HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test, or the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) to meet the needs of students and the public. The HSK tests students' ability to apply Chinese language in their studies, personal life and work. The HSK is used to help measure learners' Chinese proficiency level and is used for school applications and career opportunities in China.

HSK is a standardized international Chinese language proficiency test for non-native Chinese speakers, with 6 different levels depending on the learners' level of Chinese proficiency. All HSK certificates are issued by the National Commission of Chinese Proficiency Test, which is under the Ministry of Education in China.

Please note that the Confucius Institute of Rutgers University (CIRU) offers only the internet based test. This means that the test is taken on a computer, at the test center. All tests are held at our office building in Room 101 at 24 College Avenue, New Brunswick. Please refer to the HSK FAQ for test times and durations.
