Academic Program - ISU 2017

The core elements of the academic program of the ISU, mandatory to earn credits, contain the following:

1. German Language Course

German? Warum nicht! Start learning German from scratch, or improve the language competence that you have. At the ISU Marburg you will be joining a German intensive course, that will meet every morning from 9 till 11am. The language class will take place in small groups in classrooms and often beyond that, taking you to the streets of Marburg. Authentic language learning experience guaranteed!
