German Language and Cultural Training

All students are invited to join the free Intensive German course, which makes you eligible for up to 3 ECTS credits. This preparatory course will take place right before the start of the semester begins. On the first day of the course you will be tested, the next day you will be placed in a group according to your level of German. It will be a good start into your studies, since most modules are being taught in German.

During the semester you can take part in the extended German program, choosing up to two German classes of 4 hours each per week. These classes are free of charge for our exchange students. Completion of this German course makes you eligible for up to 5 ECTS credits.

If you feel the need for additional German training during the semester, there are plenty other training possibilities in Berlin, our Office of Global Engagement can advise you about the different German courses available.

You are welcome to join our German Cultural Training for exchange students, which takes place every semester and offers an excursion or workshop every week. You will get to know the German culture by visiting places such as the German parliament, enjoying a German theater play and exploring different cultural topics during the workshops.

It is a fantastic way to get familiarised with Berlin and get to know the other exchange students. Be sure to clearly mark your attendance on the application form, and be eligible for up to 5 ECTS credits.
