Required Tuition Units (TU) per Level
How quickly a certain language level can be reached depends on a range of factors: diligence, motivation, interest, learning background, age of the learner, teaching intensity, type of course etc.
The information in the following table is therefore only a rough guide.
- Intensive Course 3 weeks = 72 TU (24 TU per week)
- Semester Evening Course “German as a Foreign and Second Language” (DaF/DaZ) = ca. 75 – 85 TU per semester
- Preparatory Program for Supplementary Examinations (VAAU) = 216 or 288 TU per semester
1 tuition unit = 45 minutes
