Basic knowledge of the German language is strongly recommended as lectures are usually held in German. At least we expect a profound knowledge of English from the students and is is strongly recommended to attend a German course during the exchange in Linz.
KUNI Linz offers two german courses for Exchange Students:
German as a Foreign Language / Basic Course (Winter- and Summerterm)
500.030 W - 4 ECTS
500.030 S - 4 ECTS
German as a Foreign Language / Advanced (Winter- and Summerterm)
500.031 W - 2 ECTS
500.031 S - 2 ECTS
For that purpose there will be a classification meeting with the coordinator of these courses in the beginning of the semester. You will receive an announcement per e-mail in time.
