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 it 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 summer semester)
500.030 W - 4 ECTS
500.030 S - 4 ECTS
German as a Foreign Language / Advanced (Winter and summer semester)
500.031 W - 2 ECTS
500.031 S - 2 ECTS
There will be a classification meeting with the teacher of the course to make sure that you are in the right course.
Further German Courses
