General RUB Students (Ersthörende)

All of our language courses are free of charge for every student of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Ersthörende). There is no limitation for the number of courses one can take. As a RUB student, you must register via eCampus. This is also the case for courses you take for the optional part of your studies ('Optionalbereich'). Please note that a personal registration at ZFA will not lead to course participation and crediting.

For information regarding the dates and registration process for our placement tests, seeEinstufungen
