Language courses


Students have the option to take German courses alongside their studies at the Language Centre. Registration for these courses is done only through the Language Centre. In order to assess you correctly, you will be asked to complete a placement test [C test] online. You should set aside 30 minutes for this. Please take the test seriously and complete it honestly and independently, to ensure that you are placed at the right level for your ability. One course per semester is free for regular students with a result of 40 points or more.

Fee-based intensive German courses are also available at HU before the beginning of the semester.


Other languages

If you are interested in other languages, you can choose from those in the programme of the HU Language Centre. Please note that regular language courses have a fee (€20 for 2 SWS or €40 for 4 SWS) and fill up quickly.  We recommend booking immediately at the beginning of the application period as these courses fill up very quickly.
