Short Intensive courses

Intensive German language courses for exchange students (Erasmus+) preparing to study in Germany

Each year in March and October we run a German course that has been specially designed to meet the needs of Erasmus exchange students coming to study at Saarland University. The reading and listening comprehension texts are specially chosen to provide you with information about student life at Saarland University – both on campus and in and around Saarbrücken.

Please note: These courses are designed primarily for Erasmus exchange students at Saarland University. If you are an Erasmus student at another university, you can apply for a place, but you will initially be placed on the waiting list.

Tandem language exchange programme
