GasthörerschaftPLUS: German courses

Preparatory German Course Programme

Refugees who are interested in studying at EvH RWL and whose German language skills are not yet sufficient to begin their studies may apply to participate in a course entitled “GasthörerschaftPLUS”. This program enables them to become acquainted with the university as auditors and, concurrently, to participate in a free intensive German-language course (beginning with the level B1) or TestDaF preparatory courses. The courses are designed to lead participants to earning their TestDaF-Certificate, required to study in German universities. This will be augmented through sessions designed to familiarize participants with what they will need for studies in the fields of social work and health care.

Participants are registered as guest auditors and will receive neither a student identity card nor a semester ticket.

The “GasthörerschaftPLUS“ course begins either in April or in October.
