As in past semesters the Lektorat German as a Foreign Language offers complimentary German classes for the following target groups to support you in your study or research programme as well as in everyday situations during your stay here at Kiel University or in Germany.

  • Students of Master Programmes held in English/German
  • Students who are enrolled for a study programme without degree at Kiel University (e.g. scholarship holders (ERASMUS, DAAD, Stadt Kiel) or the so-called “free-movers” who study here for only one or two semesters)
  • Visiting scientists and Post doc and PhD students
  • Academic staff and employees at Kiel University or associated institutes

Courses are offered at different levels and students are placed in classes corresponding to their language needs based on the results of an online placement test. There are classes at beginner level (GER A1/A2 level), at intermediate level (GER B1/B2 level) and at advanced level (GER C1/C2 level).

Over a 12-week period learners have a total of 72 teaching units. Classes typically take place on two evening per week with 6 teaching units per week. Holidays are being added at the end.

For all courses there is only a limited number of places available.
