Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK)
Next Test: Sunday 16 October 2022 - register by 19 September 2022
Serious about studying Chinese? Join almost two million fellow students from all over the world who have taken the HSK test - China’s official language proficiency exam. The test measures the ability of a non-native speaker to use Chinese in their daily, working and academic life.
A HSK score is not only a way to measure your progress in Chinese, but also opens the door for many scholarship and summer camp applications.
It is internationally recognized and often used by governments and multi-nationals as a basis for employment, promotion and pay increases.
Watch the video to see how taking the HSK can benefit you.
The Center for Language Education and Cooperation in Beijing runs the HSK test internationally and the Confucius Institute at UWA hosts the exam in WA. Testing is held in March, June and October at our Claremont campus. The HSK registration page is here.

The YCT test was developed by Hanban in an effort to encourage non-Chinese speaking primary and secondary school students to learn Chinese and improve their Chinese language proficiency. It consists of four levels in line with the HSK testing system, with the highest level equivalent to HSK Level 3.
