In an internationalized study system and a globalized professional world, sound foreign language skills are very important. English in particular plays a key role as an international lingua franca.
The Division of Foreign Languages supports you with a differentiated range of courses to improve your English language skills. The offer covers the GeR levels B1 - C2 and includes general language courses, skill-specific courses as well as discipline-specific language courses. We would like to encourage you to further develop your English language skills in the various competence areas and thus prepare yourself well for your professional career.

As a rule, you have to take a placement test before registering for a course. A placement test is necessary if you do not have an internationally recognized, current language certificate or have not completed a previous course.
For individual departments, we offer discipline-specific English courses. These courses are part of the curriculum.
We provide support for academic writing in English through our writing lab w.space.
