Each semester the Language Center offers members of the RWTH academic community the opportunity to improve their German language skills in a series of courses aimed at both beginners and advanced students.

This offer also addresses students who enroll in a English Master Program which feature German language courses in their curriculum.


These courses are subject to fees. You can find information on the page fees.

An exemption to course fees is possible for students of English Master Programs which have stated in their

study and examination regulations that German language courses are part of their curriculum.

Please note

A placement test is compulsory for students with previous knowledge of German who have not otherwise taken courses with us before. The test will determine your current German level so we can offer you an adequate course. Eben if you have certificates of other language centers you still have to take a placement test with us. Students with no previous knowledge don't need to write a placement test.
