Language Centre

A strongly international focus is a key profile element of the University of Passau — and the Language Centre lays the groundwork: our range of languages and courses allows you to develop advanced skills in a number of foreign languages.

Subject-specific language programmes

The FFA programmes are language courses tailored to students' degree subjects. They conclude with the subject-specific language examinations, FFP, which are aligned with various levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Students at Passau

Combine your vacation with a language course through the programme German Courses Passau. This programme offers international students the opportunity to improve their German language while getting to know the Bavarian culture through different activities and events in the ‘City of Three Rivers’.

Our profile — your advantage

The language courses we offer are strongly oriented on higher education needs. This means there is rapid progression and the course content prepares students for studying or working abroad.

In addition to European languages such as English, French and Spanish, the Language Centre offers Chinese, Italian, Portuguese and Russian, languages that are gaining in importance on the international arena. Knowledge of Slavic and Asian languages give our students a competitive edge on the international labour markets.
