Language courses
discover foreign languages – broaden your horizons

Language courses Foreign languages for everybody

Learn a new language or deepen your existing knowledge in order to optimally prepare for a stay abroad at one of our numerous international cooperation universities. Use the foreign language you have learned for the first exchange with your international fellow students and thereby take the opportunity to make new friends. Discover the languages as "keys to the world" (Wilhelm von Humboldt).

Next start language courses 11th of January 2021 - Registration possible between 1st of December 2020 and 8th of January 2021 via your student's Webportal Campusnet.

Please note that almost all courses for the winter semester will be offered digitally due to the COVID19 situation. Unfortunately, Chinese language courses cannot be offered in autumn 2020, probably there will be further dates starting in January 2021.

The teaching language in some courses is German, so for understanding the explanations of the lecturer a minimum level of a good A2 (better B1) in German is necessary.

FAQs Language Courses

Registrations are usually activated about 3-4 weeks before the start of the course. The exact announcement will be made on the website.

The language courses are held three times a year with a duration of 10 weeks each.

  • Autumn course – Block I and II
  • Winter course – Block III and IV
  • Spring course – Block VI and VII

Independent deregistration via Campusnet is only possible within the time frame announced on the website (at least 4 days before the start of the course). However, you can cancel your registration during the first two weeks if you are unable to attend the course on time. Please send a short e-mail to Studium-Generale.hshd@srh.de.

No, the lecturers trust in your self-assessment. However, if it becomes apparent in the first lecture that the course does not have the appropriate level, you can change accordingly, provided that a course with the appropriate language level takes place.

No, our university is not certified. The lecturers conduct their courses according to the language levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR-Levels www.coe.int/en/web/common-european-framework-reference-languages/level-descriptions).

Yes, since you will take an exam at the end of the course and receive two credit points for participation, a minimum attendance of 80% (including exam) is required. For a course duration of 10 weeks you must therefore attend 8 lectures.

As soon as the maximum number of participants is reached, you will be put on a waiting list in Campusnet. You will also be informed before the course starts. As there may be collisions with the regular schedule during the first two weeks and there are cancellations, there is a possibility of skipping the course. In this case you will receive an e-mail from us about free places.

All external lecturers have a university e-mail address. This is usually as follows: vorname.nachname@extern.srh.de. In addition, you can contact them directly via MS Teams (in the context of your digital lecture in MS Teams). Many lecturers will also provide you with their private e-mail address. If the lecturer does not respond, please contact Studium-Generale.hshd@srh.de - we will establish the contact for you.

If you fail the exam, you will not be awarded any credit points. We will gladly confirm your participation in the course.

Please send a short e-mail to Studium-Generale.hshd@srh.de.
