Important information for course participants

The German Course Programme at the UdK

German B2 and C1

The German courses lead to the levels B1.2, B2 or C1. Both B2 and C1 end with a portfolio examination. Successful completion of the examination certifies independent (B2) or competent (C1) language use according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Passing the exam is considered sufficient proof of language proficiency within UdK Berlin.

In the summer semester 2024, the UdK offers German courses at levels B2 and C1. The B2 and C1 courses each conclude with a portfolio examination. Passing the exam (B2 and C1) is considered sufficient proof of language proficiency within the UdK.

The B2 courses take place during the semester. The C1 course will take place in the summer semester 2024 during the semester break on four days a week (face-to-face course with online phases).

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer a B1 course in the summer semester 2024.

The German courses at UdK Berlin are exclusively aimed at UdK students. Applicants can register once they have been offered a place at the UdK. Please note that capacity is limited and the UdK cannot guarantee a place for all international students.
