Course Program - German as a Foreign Language

The courses offered in German as a Foreign Language are open to all affiliates of Philipps-Universität. They predominantly consist of in-sessional classes with one or two sessions per week, covering the levels from A1 to C1. Shortly before the start of each semester, we run intensive pre-session classes for newly arriving international students. Classes preparing for language exams that are needed for the application at a German university like Testdaf or DSH are NOT offered by the Language Center. If you are interested in the DSH, please contact the Studienkolleg Mittelhessen.
