in everyday & academic life

Wed, March 03 - Fri, March 26, 2021

course fee:
€ 389

(for ● the language lessons in the morning,
● the text book, ● the programme of extracurricular activities)

The aim of the international spring course is to make it easier for the new international (exchange) students (i.e. Erasmus and partnership programmes) to settle into their new university and to participate in their studies by offering a preparation course before the lecture period of the summer semester 2021. The course is also open to participants who do/will not study in Göttingen or who are not participating in an exchange programme ("external participants"). However, external participants need to arrange for accommodation themselves.

Besides the intensive German course in the morning there will also be a programme of various extracurricular activities to get to know the town of Göttingen and the other course participants. The German language lessons in the mornings comprise 68 in-person lessons (45 minutes each) in a course room and will be offered at basic level A1.1, A1.2, A2.1 and A2.2, intermediate levels B1.1, B1.2, B2.1 and B2.2 as well as advanced level C1. The International Spring Course can be acknowledged as "external academic achievement" and transferred as DaF (German as a foreign language) course/examination component with 6 credit points to the ToR (Transcript of Records) (see also subpage →German language lessons).

In addition, participants of the B2 and C1 levels have the opportunity to take an online course on academic communication (introduction to typical assignments, specific vocabulary, etc.) for various fields of study in the afternoon (see also subpage →German language lessons). The online course in the afternoon is not included in the course fee (additional fee of € 149).
