The ZFA offers all RUB students the opportunity to improve their language skills, helping them in a goal-oriented manner to become multilingual. In order to prepare you for your academic and professional careers, we offer an array of courses intended to build upon your existing knowledge or allow you to learn a new language from scratch.

Our courses are divided into three main categories:

  • General language courses focussing on academic skills and student life
  • Language courses for specific purposes open to students of all faculties.
  • Language courses for specific purposes exclusively for students of one particular subject.

Our courses…
  • …are tailored to your needs as a student.
  • …facilitate your language learning process.
  • …are hands-on and skills-based.

In our language courses you can
  • …extend your foreign- and heritage-language competences on an academic level
  • …acquire skills in new languages geared to your studies
  • …immerse in your specialist language or enhance your competences in this field
  • …develop an individual multilingual profile
