Language Center

The Language Center of the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg offers general and technical language, study and job-oriented courses in up to 11 languages. Various certificates, such as the Certificate of Intercultural Competence and the DAAD Test, round off the offer.

Course registration

Registrations for all classes of the Language Center are to be done via Moodle:  Registration Semester Courses / Registration Crash Courses

  • The maximum number of participants in a course is 25.
  • The minimum number of participants required for an optional course is 10. For required or required-elective classes of individual study programs, the general regulations of the University apply.

All language classes start in the second week of the lecture period. If you cannot attend the first class session, please contact the Language Center (sprachenzentrum@hs-offenburg.de). Otherwise your place may be assigned to someone else.

If the minimum number of participants is not reached in the second (or third) week, the class will be cancelled. You will receive an e-mail notification in this case.

Please note the regulation for block courses during semester breaks: If you do not attend on the first day of classes, you will lose your place in the course.
