Language Centre

The Language Centre is a centre of competence not only for teaching languages but also for contemporary teaching, intercultural competence and related consulting services. It plays a vital role in the university’s internationalisation process. In addition, it allows students to complement their studies by learning a foreign language - a key skill in today’s professional world.   

We offer courses in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, Italian and Dutch. They are a mixture of ESP courses (English for Specific Purposes) and general language courses - for beginners, advanced or intensive speakers. Alongside the obligatory ESP courses, students can attend non-obligatory and extra-curricular courses. These are especially useful for those students who are planning a semester abroad, looking to take on an international work assignment or for those who are simply interested in learning a foreign language for private purposes. 

You will find information about all of the courses by logging onto the platform STUD.IP, which is also where you can register for the individual courses.
