Intensive German language prep-courses during the semester break enable all foreign students to study in German.

The free German language courses during the semester address all foreign students wishing to develop or broaden their German skills during their stay in Germany. They are not designed for native speakers and have a limited number of participants. There is a placement test at the beginning of the semester to classify students according to the ECFR levels A1 to C1. Additionally, incoming students are kindly invited to register for the courses of the Centre for Key Skills (in German language) here. The range of courses is as follows:

Furthermore, the International Office offers field trips to various destinations in order for the students to gather country-specific experience outside the study location.
