I need to take a language course. Can I take a course here at the university?
Academic staff at Saarland University looking to improve their proficiency in a foreign language or who want to develop their international/intercultural competence can choose from the numerous courses on offer at the Language Centre.
The Language Centre (SZSB) is a central institution located on the Saarbrücken campus. The courses offered cover a wide range of languages and are primarily for students, though members of university staff are also welcome to attend. Both intensive block courses and courses with weekly attendance are offered. Usually both beginner’s and advanced courses are offered. If you already have some knowledge of the language, you will probably need to take a placement test (registration required). Courses begin in both the summer and winter semesters. You will need to register with the Language Centre first before you can book a course.
The Personnel Development Team organizes regular English and French language courses, specifically for university staff. As part of the Trilingual Campus project, English and French language courses taught at htw saar – the University of Applied Sciences in Saarbrücken – are also being offered to Saarland University staff, while English and French courses taught at Saarland University are open to staff from htw saar.
