Additional Language Courses
In order to successfully fulfill the degree requirements for a course of studies as outlined in the examination rules and regulations, students at the Institute for Translation and Interpreting (IÜD) are expected to possess both strong written and oral communication skills in their chosen languages (starting level at least CEFR level B1-B2). To assist students in obtaining the necessary level of proficiency, we cooperate with the university’s Central Language Laboratory (Zentrales Sprachlabor, ZSL) and with the Slavic Institute. The ZSL offers intensive language courses and language courses throughout the semester for the A-, B- and C- languages eligible at the Institute for Translation and Interpreting that our students can attend in addition to the subject-specific courses at the IÜD. The course fees of the ZSL apply.
For German, additional courses take place every semester as part of different cooperative arrangements.

For Portuguese, there is a preparatory language course prior to the beginning of the winter semester.
