German Courses for Erasmus Incoming Students

Knowledge of the German language is a prerequisite for studying at the University of Vienna since most courses are held in German (with the exception of selected Master’s/PhD programs). Before you start your lectures at the University, you can prepare for your studies by attending an intensive September or February course; in addition, you can further enhance your German skills during the semester by participating in a trimester course.

Exchange students will be granted a discount of 20% on all trimester courses, February courses and summer courses, if they present a registration confirmation of the University of Vienna (which you receive from the International Office). There is no discount on semester courses.

The Language Center of the University of Vienna also offers courses in numerous other languages.
