Our German language course offer
The language courses offered by the Department of in-sessional German courses at the ISZ Saar include:
The in-sessional semester courses are the ideal format for international students (Bachelor, Master, Erasmus-, Partner programmes), PhD students, guest researchers, employees and their family members. The courses offered cover all language proficiency levels and run for the entire duration of the semester. Depending on the course selected, participants can improve their general language skills or acquire and develop their proficiency in specific areas. Our special beginners' courses are aimed at participants with no knowledge of German.
To help make their study abroad semester a success, students in the Erasmus+ and other exchange programmes can take part in the short intensive language courses that run in March, October and September of each year and whose content and curriculum have been designed to meet the specific needs of exchange students. Those who want to participate must have previous knowledge of the German language.
German courses for beginners
International students or doctoral candidates from all faculties of the UdS and UKS Homburg who have no knowledge of German learn the German language in German courses specially adapted to the needs of zero beginners, in the so-called beginners' courses.
Special doctoral courses meet the needs of doctoral researchers who wish to improve their German language proficiency. In addition to improving general language competence, the focus is on the day-to-day skills required in a German academic environment – phone calls with German colleagues, writing and replying to e-mails, etc.
The tandem programme pairs up people with different native languages who are interested in learning the language of their tandem partner. The programme is open to students, university employees and, if enough places are available, to members of the public.
