Official HSK Test Centres in Australia (with Location & Contact Details)

Australia HSK test centers

Are you looking for an HSK test centre in Australia? You are at the right place.

For decades, Australian schools have focused on teaching Asian languages to students to strengthen their opportunities in Asia. In states like Victoria, Mandarin Chinese has already become the most-studied language at school. After all, Mandarin Chinese is the most spoken language other than English in Australia, and China is Australia’s biggest trading partner.

HSK is the official Chinese proficiency test organized by Hanban (Chinese Language Council International) that also runs Confucius Institutes. If you want to make a career with the Chinese language, you should take the HSK test in Australia to prove your competence level. And it’s easy to do so. As of 2020, there is a total of 16 authorized HSK test centres in Australia. In this post, you’ll find all their locations and contact details.

Where to Take the HSK Test in Australia?

Sydney HSK Centre is the only test centre in Australia that arranges both the computer-based HSK tests (also known as internet-based/online HSK tests) and the paper-based HSK tests. Or you can take the traditional paper-pencil test at many of the Confucius Institutes and Chinese schools across the country.

  • Sydney
  • Melbourne
  • Brisbane
  • Adelaide

Note: Not all test centres in Australia necessarily administer HSK tests on every level throughout the year. How often they give the HSK on a particular level depends on their funding and on how popular the test is in that region. While we at ImproveMandarin.Com aim to keep the published list as accurate as possible (the above list is updated yearly following the data provided by Hanban, the HSK test organizer), we suggest you contact the test centres to reconfirm available open dates and venues before you sign up for an HSK test.
