Our non-degree courses ("study-accompanying German language courses") offer international students as well as Erasmus and other exchange students enrolled at a university in Regensburg the opportunity to improve their German and boost their academic achievements.
The comprehensive curriculum covers language levels A1 to C2 and helps students improve their German while building on the skills they already have. Our German courses cover a wide range of essential skills, such as reading, listening, writing, and speaking. At the same time, we want students to experience German culture up close. To this end, we offer classes on cultural studies and literature and film seminars.
A special class ist “Babylon”, the international theater class at the Department of German as a Foreign Language. Students can also improve their German by making use of our Department’s online classes or the online courses offered by the Virtuelle Hochschule Bayern (vhb).
Our non-degree German courses take place during the lecture period of each semester.
For information about timetables and classrooms for specific courses, please refer to the course catalog of UR.

After successfully completing a course, students get a "Schein" with ECTS credits and grades.

The criteria for getting ECTS credits are as follows:
Thespecific number of ECTS that can be earned in a course is indicated for each course in the course catalog.
Students also earn a final grade that is independent of the ECTS credits they are awarded. This grade has no influence on the number of ECTS credits that students obtain.
Non-degree German courses are free of charge for regular students as well as exchange students enrolled at Universität Regensburg or OTH Regensburg.
