The Foreign Language Institute (Institut für Fremdsprachen) of the University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule Karlsruhe - Technik und Wirtschaft) offers intensive language courses to international students usually during the last two weeks of the semester break. Students take a placement test when they arrive, and then are divided into suitable groups according to their existing German language skills. Those who have completed one course level as a pre-term intensive course can attend the next higher course level during the regular semester.

Only students registered at the Hochschule Karlsruhe are eligible to attend these classes and will receive 4 ECTS credit points for successful completion of the course. No guests can be admitted.


Unfortunately, the IFS does not offer any intensive courses in the German department in the winter semester 2020/21.

You are welcome to register for our semester courses.
