HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test)

The Chinese Proficiency Test (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi - HSK) is a worldwide test of Chinese language set by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. It is similar to TOEFL or IELTS. The HSK exam report is the only officially recognised Chinese language proficiency certificate for foreigners applying to study and/or work in mainland China. The objective of the test is to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers of Chinese (including foreigners, overseas Chinese and students from Chinese national minorities). 

We highly recommend our students to take this test as it can open up a world of opportunity for study and work in China. We have various resources to help students prepare for the test at all levels.

For more information about the HSK and for a timetable of when this year’s tests are being held, please click here

Community Chinese

We also offer community Chinese courses through UNSW’s Institute of Languages, which is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious community language centre founded in 1966.
