Courses offered during the semester
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.
Language proficiency test
A placement test must be passed online by the announced deadline, before admission to the courses. You will receive the link to the placement test after registration.
Students can acquire credit points (ECTS) in case of regular participation and after successfully taking the final exam.
When you apply, you can state a preference for a particular course. We will make every effort to try and get you a place on your preferred course. In all other courses that you select, we can only offer you a place if places are still available.
There is no guarantee of a place when you register or write the placement test.
Please note! If you miss the first session of the course without any excuse, you will automatically lose your place! Please send your apologies to deutschkurse(at)isz.uni-saarland.de
The test results of all placement tests and the classification into courses will be communicated to you by e-mail.
