Durch die Mannigfaltigkeit der Sprachen wächst unmittelbar für uns der Reichtum der Welt und die Mannigfaltigkeit dessen, was wir in ihr erkennen.

Our German Modules

We offer numerous language modules for German as a foreign language (DaF) at the levels A1 to C1 for international students and, thus, prepare you for your future tasks. The focus of our training is on the topics of studies and work.

Please consider our "Guide to German Language Courses" in OPAL.

    At the A1, A2, and B1 levels, we offer each student one module per semester. In the summer semester, the continuation of the first A1 module from the winter semester can also be taken. All modules have a scope of 4 SWS (5 credits).

    • S001: DaF A1 I/SI in every semester (available as S101 in the winter semester)
    • S004: DaF A1 II/SI in summer semester
    • S002: DaF A2/SI in every semester (available as S102 during the winter semester)
    • S003: DaF B1/SI in every semester

    At the B2 and C1 levels, the winter semester modules will be continued in the summer semester. All modules have a total of 4 SWS (5 credits).

    • S008: DaF B2 I/SI in winter semester
    • S009: DaF B2 II/SI in summer semester
    • S006: DaF C1 I/SI in winter semester
    • S007: DaF C1 II/SI in summer semester

    Especially for students in the master's program Environmental Engineering we offer two elective modules in the first semester, which may also be taken by other students within the framework of Studium Integrale.

    • S101: DaF B A1 I in winter semester
    • S102: DaF B A2 I in winter semester

    Especially for exchange students in mechanical engineering, we also offer two consecutive language modules with subject-specific elements, in the summer semester also for specific preparation for the TestDaF:

    • S010: DaF M B2/SI in winter semester
    • S011: DaF M C1/SI in summer semester

    In addition, for students studying Electrical Engineering/Elektrotechnik, we offer intensive German education during the first two years of study, with the goal of being able to continue studying in German. The occupancy of these intensive language modules with 12 SWS each is associated with a fee of currently 490, - € per module. In exceptional cases, newcomers with sufficient capacities after 4 SWS or 8 SWS have the option of taking the module during the course of the semester. This is particularly appropriate if already existing knowledge at the appropriate level. For this, the course fee will be charged pro rata (330, - € or 165, - €).

    We are very pleased that we can reduce the regular course fees due to funding from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in the summer semester 2020, in the winter semester 2020/2021, and in the summer semester 2021 with a maximum of 300,- € per student. This is automatically taken into account when invoicing (if necessary proportionately).

    • S901: DaF E A1 & A2 in winter semester
    • S902: DaF E A2 & B1 in summer semester
    • S904: DaF E B2 in winter semester
    • S905: DaF E C1 in summer semester
    • S906: DaF EF B2 in winter semester
    • S907: DaF EF C1 in summer semester

    In the week before the beginning of the courses at the HTW Dresden, the Introduction Week for program students organized by the International Office in cooperation with the faranto e.V. This includes a placement test or information sessions on our German modules.
