Language Courses

Do you want to improve your language skills?

The “Studium Generale” organized by the University of Mannheim Service and Marketing GmbH offers German and other foreign language courses.

You will need good German language skills to attend the foreign language courses, as they are taught in German. Since the spring semester 2017, every international degree-seeking student can attend one German language course per semester free of charge. At present, the fee for any additional course is EUR 62.
You need to register online at the beginning of the semester. Regular attendance is mandatory. You cannot miss more than 4 units, which usually means two course meetings.

Please note that you will not receive any ECTS credits for these courses. Instead, you will receive a certificate after successfully completing the course. 
You can find more information on the courses offered and on registration here.
