You may register for all German courses of the Semester Course Program. If you have had previous knowledge in German, you need to take a placement test. Dates for the placement test can be found under Dates & Deadlines. There you can also learn more about registration procedures.

You find further information on the registration procedure and course regulations in the Semester Course Guide.
