Competence area LANGUAGES

Languages are the gateway to the world. They convey intercultural competence with the important values such as openness, tolerance and respect for diversity. Moreover, in a global world, they are more important than ever for a successful professional life.

The language courses offered are open to all university target groups and are based on the language levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). All courses are generally creditable and (with the exception of the summer courses) free of charge.

Our offer in the field of "Languages" is aimed at the following target groups:

» Regular students
» Erasmus students
» International students
» Guest researchers
» Refugees
» ZQ DaF
» Employees of the HHUD

Another possibility to learn a language is offered by our language tandem and our international language meeting. Here you learn with a lot of fun and above all without any pressure.

A uniform language level of the participants is an important prerequisite for the most successful language teaching. Therefore, at the beginning of the German, English, French and Spanish courses (with the exception of the A1 and A1.1 courses), assessments are made by C-tests. Alternatively, internationally recognized language certificates not older than two years can be presented.  In the German courses, certificates from the previous course are also accepted. Here you can find all the important information about our assessments.
