Learn German during your stay

At h_da many courses/lectures are offered in German. You should learn as much German as possible prior to your arrival so you will get the most out of your semester(s) abroad. We are offering German classes for exchange students in order for you to extend your knowledge of German. During our orientation program (first month at h_da) you will participate in the mandatory intensive German class.

You can benefit from the language classes in two areas:

  1. The better your language skills the easier it will be for you to communicate with your housemates, fellow students, professors, and locals.
  2. You will receive ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) points for each language class you pass.

Intensive German class (3 ECTS)
This mandatory class takes places during the orientation program from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:15 as a preparation for the upcoming semester.
