German Language Courses

Universität Regensburg offers a large variety of German language courses during the semester for students who wish to improve their German language skills. These courses are free of charge for exchange students and are offered on all language levels up to C2.

On the basis of a placement test during the orientation course, students know which language level is best for them. This placement test is without any costs for exchange students. Students register for their language courses during the orientation programme.

Detailed information on our German language courses

The Pre-semester Intensive Language Training Course (ILC)

Image Auslaendische Studierende Mm _14_Universität Regensburg offers a pre-semester intensive language course for exchange students with little exposure to German (Level A1 to C1). The course takes place 5-6 weeks before the semester starts (= beginning of March and beginning of September). Student assistants will support and advise the participants during the entire programme and help them get organised (including all formalities).

Students will be credited with 12 ECTS for the regular and successful attendance of the course which covers approx. 120 hours of instruction. The course fee for participants in the ERASMUS programme is 320,- (WS 18/19); the fee for participants of other exchange programmes is € 400. The fee includes tuition, orientation, and extra-curricular activities. However, costs for accommodation and other living expenses during the programme are not covered.

Please note:

This course should be attended by every student that has German knowledge below B2 level. The supporting programme and the orientation phase of the language course will be in German and English. Even though the course will be very intensive, students arriving with an A1/A2 level will in all not be able to successfully attend (German-taught) lectures. Therefore, we urgently recommend that these students take further German classes during the semester period.

Application for the Intensive Language Course

Application for the ILC is integrated into the online application as exchange student.
