The German Language Center helps international students at Augsburg UAS to improve their German language skills.
Before being admitted to a German university, degree seeking students must provide official proof of their German language skills, for example by the TestDaF exam. We offer exam preparation courses for future students and the test itself is administered regularly at the TestDaF Prüfungszentrum Bayerisch-Schwaben which is located directly at the Centre for Languages of Augsburg UAS.
We also run German language courses for international students. These courses can be attended during your degree course as general electives. By this you can improve your German and collect ECTS credits!
