Our semester evening program is a university course (ULG) offered by the University of Klagenfurt. The university course “German as a Foreign and Second Language” offers German classes for students with non-German language backgrounds, enabling them to acquire German at the standard levels described in the Course Aim Regulation of the European Council and the European Language Portfolio. Courses take place in the winter and summer semester (each semester spans 4 months) and consist of 2 x 3 teaching units (1 TU = 45 minutes) per week. All courses take place from 6 to 9 p.m. For the succesful attendance of a course 9 ECTS credits are awarded.
You will be assigned to the appropriate class based on the results of the placement test that takes place at the beginning of the semester. The placement test consists of an oral part (interview with our language trainers) and a written part (computer-based).
€ 480.00 per semester including learning materials, placement test and final certificate.
Please only sign up if you’re sure you can actually participate. The course fee must be paid upon registration and is not refundable.

Most room names are made up of three parts. The format is “building.floor.room”. The first part specifies the building in which the seminar room is located: N = north wing. The second part, on which floor the room is located and the third finally designates the number of the room. “N.1.42”, for example, indicates the north wing, 1st floor, room # 42.

If you informed the International Office (you will be contacted directly by them), that you would like to take a German class, they will reserve a course place for you. This place, however, is only reserved until the end of the registration period. If you decide not to attend, please inform us immediately so that the course place can be allocated to another student.
Please note, that after the registration deadline we’re unable to offer you a course place.Therefore, make sure to register in time! As soon as you have received your student ID (AAU.Card), please come to the language course office (east building, 2nd floor, room O.2.04) and also bring the course fee in cash to finally register.
For incoming students the International Office offers the course place at a reduced fee. You only pay a low cost contribution, the remaining amount is paid by the university. Please note, that the special offer can only be redeemed once, i.e. if you already attended a course at the low rate, for an additional one you will have to pay the regular fee.
Scholarships on intensive courses for Joint Study students are granted by the International office. If you’re interested in taking intensive classes prior to the semester, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an international student outside an exchange program at the University of Klagenfurt, you may also be able to attend the course on special terms. Please inquire at the office of the relevant department. They will contact the International Office and will inform you if you qualify for a discount.
There might also be discounts for international staff of the University of Klagenfurt. Please make an inquiry directly to the department you’re working for.
If after the registration you drop your course or don’t attend at all, NO course fees will be refunded! Therefore, if you’re not sure you can attend, do NOT register! The (non-refundable) course fees are payable upon registration. We only accept cash payments.
