How to register for our language courses

Please keep in mind that the results of the placement test will be compared to the level of your chosen language course. If your result does not match the required level, your application will not be included in the course place allocation.



Crediting

2 or 4 semester hours per week are credited with 2,5 or 5 CP respectively, if the workload is met and the end-of-term exam is passed (i.e. the grade is 4,0 or higher). Courses and CP are listed on the Transcript of Records in CampusOffice.



The ZFA can issue a certificate of participation without a confirmation of the language level. The workload is identical but no exam has to be taken.

Consequences
  • You are not issued a proof of your language proficiency and thus cannot continue the language on a higher level
  • You will only receive 1,5 CP or 3 CP for a course with 2 or 4 semester hours per week, respectively
  • The course cannot be credited for the optional part of your studies (‚Optionalbereich‘)
  • The type of examination entered into CampusOffice is an ungraded Certificate of Participation. Here, the language level is not confirmed.


The individual examination offices decide about the final accreditation.
