Your German Language Guide
Students with previous knowledge of German have to take a placement test before joining one of our German courses.
The Language Center's German Language Program offers a number of courses for international students and academics who want to prepare for a course of studies taught in German, improve their knowledge of the German language, or acquire basic German language skills during their stay at RWTH Aachen University. Knowledge of the German language makes communicating in both an academic and a social environment much easier and can therefore help the integration process.
The Language Center offers German courses at every level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages for various groups from different countries.
