German Language Courses

The following are frequently asked questions about GGL International funding for German language courses

Why is learning German so important?

Living in Germany, you are constantly surrounded by German language, but you may not even be aware of how much cultural insights you are missing in your exchange experience if you do not have at least a basic understanding of the language. Although you may have picked up a few German phrases here and there, you should still consider taking a German class to allow you to communicate efficiently and effectively with your German-speaking colleagues, supervisors, and in other everyday situations.

You want a job in Germany's industry? One more reason! Germany is a leading country in scientific research, so speaking German will give your CV that extra touch and make you more desirable to future employers.

Where to go for a German language course?

The International Office (Akademisches Auslandsamt - AAA) organises all German language courses.

Please visit the International Office's homepage for further information.

Please note that you have to register at the International Office and not at the GGL if you want to take a German language course.

The International Summer Course is held in September immediately before the start of the Winter Semester and offers 4 weeks (100 hours) of instruction in the  German language with a focus on basic grammar, cultural background, text production and  communicative skills. For more information have a look at the flyer or the website!


What options do I have?

Where and when do the courses take place?

The courses start at the beginning of each semester. See the current schedule for:

Intensive Courses or Evening Courses.

What do I have to do to have the GGL fund my German language course?

At the beginning of the language class, you are required to pay the course fee to the International Office. After successfully completing the class at the end of the term, you will receive a Certificate. After your successful attendance you may apply to the GGL for a refund of the course fee. Note, that you have to attend at least 80% of the course for it to be funded. For this application, please provide a copy of your Certificate to prove your participation in the language class.  In order to apply, please write to

Please note that only GGL members can apply for funding of German language courses and that you can apply for one German course only. So choose the course type carefully.

In what order should I take my courses?

We recommend that you take an intensive course at the beginning of your doctoral studies, so you will be able to grasp the basics as quickly as possible. Afterwards, we suggest you to continue with a less time-consuming evening course, which will also allow you to stay in practice.
