China's Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, known as HSK or the Chinese Proficiency Test is a standardized test at the state level designed and developed by the HSK Center of Beijing Language and Culture University to measure the Chinese proficiency of foreigners, overseas Chinese and students from Chinese national minorities. The international applicants should reach a corresponding HSK level before they can get enrolled in a degree program in Chinese universities. Chinese learners can take the test in the 161 test centers in 38 countries. For the latest test dates, you can log onto the website of HSK Center and have a look: www.hsk.org.cn.
