We offer German courses to all international students enrolled at the University of Passau. These courses are tailored to the needs of our exchange students from partner universities (ERASMUS and DAAD programmes).
International applicants who aim to study the whole degree programme at the University (i.e. degree-seeking students) have to take the German language proficiency test for admission to university (DSH), unless they are applying for/enrolled in one of the following master's programmes:
If you are not enrolled in a degree programme and thus do not have access to the Language Centre's language courses, you can still learn German with German Courses Passau.
The Academic German Year is an ab initio course. Starting from absolutely no prior knowledge you will study German for one year and gain the requisite language skills to study at the University of Passau. Alternatively, if you have existing language skills you can build on these and take them to an academic level by studying the Academic German Semester.
