Learning German
International Students


Whether you complete your studies at Hochschule Fresenius in German or English, a certain level of German proficiency will enrich your studies and life. Basic knowledge of German will help you when applying for (student) jobs in Germany, as well as in everyday life. If you do not speak German, we recommend that you take a beginners’ course in your home country before moving. This will help you navigate life in Germany.

At Hochschule Fresenius we offer international students the opportunity to take optional and free German language courses for different language levels during your studies. If you attend regularly and pass the final exam, you will receive a certificate at the end of the course. Take advantage of this opportunity – you will notice the advantages directly in your daily life.

Also, we cooperate with language schools that can help you to achieve a certain level of German before the start of the semester or during the semester break with compact courses.

The most fun is probably to learn a language in everyday life together with friends. Take advantage of the Buddy program and learn German with your Buddy!

Additionally, there is the possibility to form a language exchange (Tandem) with German speaking students.You can learn German and the student can learn your mother tongue (or another language that you speak fluently).

Hochschule Fresenius provides various services to help you learn German:
