International Winter Language School German

February 25 to March 15, 2021

23rd International Winter Language School

The German Language School of Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences focuses on the theme of Culture and Society, Economy and Technology in Germany. By taking part in this course you will:

  • train and strengthen your ability to communicate in German
  • gain an insight into the social and economic structures of modern-day Germany
  • learn more about Germany and German culture
  • have fun while spending your leisure time together with German and international students.

All lessons are run by experienced teachers of German as a Foreign Language who enjoy their job. They use modern teaching methods while working with their small groups of students. The course comprises around 90 hours of learning (between five to seven hours per day) both inside and outside the classroom.

The course program includes a variety of activities, including day-trips, company tours, sports, as well as cultural and intercultural workshops and events, which complement the classroom lessons. Because many of these activities take place in the afternoons, evenings and on the weekends, they give you a chance to get to know your fellow students and have fun during your stay in Osnabrück.


Students of Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and our partner universities who will be enrolled as (visiting) students during Summer Semester 2021 can register for the Winter Language School 2021 from November 2 at 12:00 to 23:59 on December 11, 2020. You will find the appropriate link here once registration begins.

In late December 2020, after the end of the registration period, participants will receive a link to our online placement test via email.


Unfortunately, we cannot accept registrations from external participants for this program. Due to the Corona Pandemic, we are limiting the number of participants and only admitting students who will subsequently study at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences.
