HSK Tests

HSK is a standardized Chinese proficiency test to measure the ability of non-native Chinese speakers to communicate in Chinese in daily life, academic and working settings.  It is officially administered by the Confucius Institute Headquarters (Han ban) in Beijing, China.  The test result is used to select  participants for Confucius Institute Scholarships and the Summer Camp candidates.  In addition, it is a plus for career building.
The Confucius Institute (CI) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a test center for HSK and will hold the test twice each year. Any person interested is welcome to register and participate in the test.  The upcoming test at UNL Confucius Institute is on Saturday, November 12, 2016 (Central time 9:00 am & 1:30 pm).  The registration deadline for the November test is October 13, 2016.

HSK consists of 6 levels.  Each candidate can select a suitable level to register.  The test fee for each level is different (see the table below).  Students who take Chinese courses taught by CI teachers will be entitlted to a 50% discount on the test fee.
