RWTH International Summer School

Each summer the Language Center offers an intensive German language program uniquely designed for international students wishing to learn, improve or refresh their German and to get to know Aachen and RWTH Aachen University first-hand. In addition to the language program, students also have the opportunity to participate in a culture and leisure program and to visit important sights.

The language courses are offered at levels ranging from B1 to C1. We do not offer courses for participants without any previous knowledge of German.

The course costs include a minimum of 84 hours of German instruction, including workshops, and selected cultural and social activities.

Excursions on cultural and local themes and to improve practical language skills may be booked separately.
