The German language courses running during the semester ('in-sessional' courses) 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 A1 to C1. The courses are designed for students involved in academic exchange programmes (Erasmus+ etc.), foreign students of all disciplines, guest researchers and visiting scholars as well as their family members. 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.
