Language Courses

At FHWS, we offer both German language courses to allow students to improve their language skills. Please note that fees sometimes apply for these courses, which are mainly intended for FHWS students.

German language courses

Students admitted to English-language bachelor’s degree programmes in engineering at FHWS are able to attend special courses at levels A1 and A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (Basismodul Deutsch). Proficiency in German to level A2 is the minimum requirement for non-EU citizens to have their visa extended after their first year of studying and an admission requirement for our international degree programmes.
For intermediate and advanced learners, we offer courses at levels B1 and B2 (Aufbaumodul Deutsch) as well as levels C1 and C2 (Profimodul Deutsch).

We additionally offer an intensive course at level B2 (Aufbaumodul Deutsch intensiv) that allows you to learn German to level B2 within just a short time before the start of the winter semester. Upon completing this course, you will meet the language requirements to take a degree programme taught in German. However, please note that it is only worth taking the intensive B2 course if you are already proficient in German to level B1.

Please note that the courses detailed here will only be offered if there are a minimum number of participants. Our staff will inform you about the course details and payment options.

Please register for the language courses by filling in the course registration form and sending it to the language coordinator Ms. Scholtyssek. You can find the contact details below.
