Required Courses  normally start in the first week of classes. Check with your degree program.

Elective Courses, in our extra-curricular program start in the second week of classes and typically end with a final exam. Students must register for exams at the Examination Office (note the test number in brackets). You can find out if the language course is recognized as an elective in the Study and Exam Guidelines for your department. The only courses that require pre-registration are the Spanish courses. You can register for these courses at the Moodle learning platform. This information is subject to change. Undergraduate (bachelor’s) students receive 3 ECTS points for courses listed as “2 sws” (two contact hours per week) and 6 ECTS points for courses listed as “4 sws” (four contact hours per week). Master’s degree programs have their own individual ECTS point calculations – please contact your department.

Our instructors place high value on attendance and in-class participation.
