German Language Courses

International exchange students enrolling for our degree programmes taught in German language are advised to prepare up to a German language course level of B1 or higher in order to be able to follow course lectures.

Our language courses are part of the university language course cooperation program VESPA. By facilitating structures in the field of language learning VESPA supports universities in their international orientation.

Exchange students from partner universities can apply by filling in the part "German Intensive Course" in the application form.

International degree seeking students may apply online via VESPA.

Certification as well as accreditation for exchnage students is based on mandatory attendance and successful completion of a final language test, to get into the next higher course level.
