Our Language and Communication Program for Internationals

International students and visiting staff at Trier University of Applied Sciences have the opportunity to participate in additional Continuing Education courses offered by our Center for Language and Communication. Many of these courses are also open for English-speaking participants (although there are some restrictions for beginner’s courses where the teaching language is mostly German), nevertheless, a little German is also useful for advanced French, Spanish, and Italian classes. 

We have an attractive list of courses: language courses at different levels (English, French, Spanish, Chinese, German), crash courses for exam preparation, as well as the respective exams which can be taken at the Environmental Campus (TOEIC, TestDaF) and specialized courses in English concerning specific subjects such as Academic English. 

Registration is possible now, courses start on 07 April. Please do NOT register for courses that are part of your curriculum, registration for these courses is via StudIP starting on 01 April, 8:00am, as usual. The Continuing Education courses are courses you can take as an extracurricular offer without crediting as part of your core curriculum.

Please find a list of courses that are suitable for English-speaking participants below. Target language levels are given according to the Common European Framework of Reference (you can find an explanation and self-assessment grid at http://europass.cedefop.europa.eu/sites/default/files/cefr-en.pdf); required entry level is always one level lower (e.g. Business English B2 --> entry level English B1). Courses are free for students of Trier University of Applied Sciences (there is a reduced fee for the TestDaF preparation course and separate exam fees for TOEIC and TestDaF).

Courses are also open for English-speaking external participants who will have to pay a course fee. For further information please contact us at sk-weiterbildung@umwelt-campus.de.
