We offer international doctoral researchers and postdocs the opportunity to learn German and to deepen their language skills. In cooperation with interDaF at the Herder Institute of Leipzig University and the Department of Finance and Human Resources of Leipzig University, we offer a variety of German courses for various skill levels. The courses take place in three rounds per year. Assignment to courses is carried out based on placement test results.

Registration: You can register for these courses using an application form. Deadline for registration is two weeks prior to the placement test, on March 28, 2019.

Fees: The own contribution for almost all courses is 45 Euro per course. Please note that the own contribution for the course "First steps" is 90 Euro due to the greater amount of sessions. Separate rules may apply to participants from non-university institutions.
