German as a foreign language

The International Preparatory and Language Center offers courses in German as a foreign language for two different types of target groups:

  • Students with a direct university entrance qualification who do not have sufficient knowledge of German can take part in the preparatory German courses at the ISSK or take the DSH exam (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang - German language test for admission to university).

  • International students of JGU who are enrolled in a regular degree program can improve their German skills in German courses along with the studies (“studienbegleitenden Deutschkurse”). These courses are also open to the staff of JGU.
