Evening Courses in German as a Foreign Language During the Semester

German courses for students on exchange programs (e.g., Erasmus+, ISEP), doctoral students, and visiting researchers and teachers and their dependants.

Please note that since March 16, 2020, no face-to-face classes can be held at the university for pandemic reasons. Nevertheless, our German courses will be maintained with only a few postponements. Until further notice, classes must take place online. Thank you for your understanding!


Every opportunity is given to exchange students (Erasmus+, ISEP etc.), doctoral students, visiting researchers or teachers and their dependants to attend classes in German as a foreign language during the academic semester. Within each course, there are 4 hours of instruction per week, catering to various levels of language competence. The work-load involved amounts to 3 ECTS points for each course passed.

Classes run from October to February and from April to July (i.e. during the academic semester) in the evenings – as a rule, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 18:15 – 19:45 (each class lasting for 90 minutes or, in German, a 'Doppelstunde' or 'double hour').

Timetables and the registration form as well as test results can be found in our current schedule

These classes are free for students on exchange programs (Erasmus+, ISEP etc.) and for students from partner universities of JLU.

Doctoral students, visiting researchers or teachers and their dependants pay a nominal fee: in the winter semester, about €100, and in the summer semester about €90.

Admission to the courses is ususally based on an entry-level test at the start of the semester (for time and place, see our current schedule). Further information is offered during Orientation Week and at the Section for German as a Foreign Language at the International Office

We guarantee a place for students on exchange programs and from partner universities of JLU (as long as the registration is open).

During the vacation period, exchange students (Erasmus+, ISEP etc.), doctoral students, visiting researchers or teachers and their dependants can attend our spring intensive course in March and our International Summer Course in September.
