IUZ – Languages

Preparatory German courses are intensive courses that serve to prepare you for studying in German language. Prospective students can attend intensive German courses at levels B2 and C1. The C1 course ends with the DSH examination (German Language Examination for University Admission, in German "Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang").

Are you studying in an English-language Master's program, are you an exchange student, doctoral student, intern or employee at TUBAF? Then you can expand your German language skills in a course accompanying your studies.

IUZ – Languages offers all students opportunities for university-specific, professionally-oriented language training (e.g. English, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Chinese) which is intended to enable oral and written communication for study purposes (mobility programmes) and for later professional activity.

Students of all disciplines can choose from a range of general language / specialist language-oriented courses and specialist language courses in both the basic and advanced study programmes or in the Bachelor's and Master's degree programs. You will find this selection of languages offered in the menu on the left.

The guiding goals of foreign language education are the promotion of English as a scientific lingua franca and the promotion of multilingualism. In this way, we orient our education towards the European Union's goal that every EU citizen should be able to speak two languages in addition to his or her mother tongue, as well as towards the goals and specifications of the Bologna Process.
