The deeply cosmopolitan atmosphere of Germany's oldest university provides people from around the world with a welcoming and stimulating environment for expanding their interest in German language and culture. The International Summer School offers three different language courses, each with its own diverse set of challenges.


Umbrella theme:

"Global Dynamics – Challenges and Chances"


  • Course I provides language training at elementary, intermediate and advanced levels.

  • Course II, "Fortbildungskurs (FBK)", is designed for non-native GFL teachers, university lecturers and students of German language and literature.
  • Course III provides training in Business German.


The International Summer School’s courses run:

from August 1 to August 28, 2024


Core language classes are held in the morning; in the afternoon, participants can take part in a variety of complimentary classes related to their course level. Additionally, there will be workshops and lectures. German native students accompany the participants in a variety of cultural and social events.


Upon completion of the course, all participants receive a certificate of attendance. Additional diplomas are issued to those who pass a written examination. The diploma is equivalent to 4 credit points of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).


Please read our descriptions carefully. They contain all the information we are able to issue before the enrollment. A confirmation letter with further details will be sent out only after we have received the complete set of documents needed for enrollment.



The programme may be subject to change.
