Our language courses

Are you planning a stay abroad, for example at one of our international partner universities? Then take advantage of the opportunity to improve your language skills in advance or build up new ones: With our language courses. Because a foreign language is not just another building block on your CV with which you later apply: with a foreign language you make friends, get to know other cultures and broaden your horizons. At our university, you have the opportunity to choose from a variety of different language courses: Whether Russian, Spanish or Japanese - whether beginner, advanced or even subject-related. Here you will experience language as the "key to the world" (Wilhelm von Humboldt).

Next start of the language courses from 08.01.2024 – registration possible from 04.12.2023 via Campusnet.
