Confucius Institute Chinese Test Center

On July 12, 2014, the University of Idaho Confucius Institute was authorized by Hanban to begin the establishment of an HSK test center to serve the people of Idaho and the Inland Northwest region.

As our program develops at the University of Idaho, we will provide access to additional tests offered by Hanban for our community members and students of Chinese language.
