Winter Semester 2024/2025

Dear students from other universities, Dear participants of the FWJ at RUB,
Grading will also take place online for the coming semester. Placement is always mandatory if you already have previous knowledge of the language of your choice. The dates, the technical requirements and the procedure can be found on the ZFA homepage in the section Placement Test. Please read the information on the above-mentioned page carefully!

Our courses take place in presence. Occasionally there are courses in blended learning format. This means that the courses take place either once a week for 180 minutes or twice a week for 90 minutes. Please be sure to check the course times before registering. These can be found in the RUB online course catalogue (link follows).

Attendance is compulsory for 75% of all course hours. You can find out more on the page Course participation.

The registration period starts on 09.09.2024 and ends on 10.10.2024(!), 12am. Later registrations may only be considered on a subordinate basis. Due to the school autumn holidays, the course starts between 14.10.2024 and 25.10.2024. For more detailed information, please refer to the RUB online course catalogue.

We look forward to your participation!
