Semester courses

In-sessional German language courses running during the summer and winter semester

Our Department of in-sessional German courses at the ISZ Saar offers German language courses running during the semester ('in-sessional' courses) that teach general as well as specific language skills at proficiency levels that range from beginner to advanced user, equivalent to the Common European Framework reference levels A0 to C1 (CEFR). The courses are designed for students involved in academic exchange programmes (Erasmus+, other exchange programmes), foreign students of all disciplines, guest researchers and visiting scholars as well as their family members. Classes are held once or twice a week for two or three semester hours (SWS), depending on the courses in the programme. Participants who successfully complete a course can earn ECTS credits or a course certificate (Schein) that meets the requirements for an elective module in their chosen area of study.
