We are happy to be able to offer three intensive German courses for international doctoral students, post-docs and professors and their partners during the upcoming summer semester!

There will be one course for absolute beginners(18.2 KB, 1 page), one for advanced beginners(18.1 KB, 1 page) and another one for advanced learners(18.3 KB, 1 page). All courses are free of charge! Each course will comprise 90 minutes per week, will take place on campus and will start at the end of April.


2. University Sports Courses

You will find the University’s sports program for the summer semester 2019 on this website (German only):

The courses are open for all international (visiting) PhD students and international (visiting) scholars researching and teaching at the University. They start from 23rd April. All courses except for the ball sports require a registration and cost a small fee.

Online registration will be possible via this website from Monday, 15th April (please check the respective course description for the exact time the registration portal opens). Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You need a ba-number to register i.e. only enrolled students, university staff or members of the university can use the portal. You will also be asked to fill out a SEPA form with your bank account details as the fee will be debited from your account.
