Learning German

Important Information for the Winter Semester 2020/21

Due to the Corona Pandemic we don't know yet whether we will be allowed to carry through an Intensive Language Course this fall.

In case we are allowed to have an ILC, it will NOT be in September but in October, as the start of the lectures was moved to November 2.

We hope to know by the end of June what's going to happen with the ILC. Please stay in contact with us, so that we can add your name to our list of participants and inform you about any news.

German Language Courses

The University of Regensburg has a very broad offer of courses for students wishing to learn German.

For exchange students the following two options apply:

  • Learning German before the academic lecture period starts
  • Learning German parallel to the academic lectures

Naturally, both can be combined!

Learning German before the academic lecture period start:
The Intensive Language Course (ILC)

Exchange students who would like to improve their German skills before the academic lectures start, viz. in September or March, are welcome to participate in the preparatory Intensive Language Course (ILC). Students can sign up for the ILC as part of their general online application for studies as an exchange student.

For details, please see our section on
Orientation and ILC

Learning German parallel to the academic lectures:

The University or 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.
