Academic German Year
The preparatory year at the University of Passau!
You are planning to embark on a degree course at the University of Passau but only have very little or no knowledge of the Geman language? The Academic German Year (AGY) aims to provide international students with an affordable opportunity to learn German and fulfil the German language requirements in as little as one year.
This intensive German course is a joint project between the Language Centre and the International Office of the University of Passau and another building block of the University’s strong international and multi-cultural orientation.
The Academic German Year (AGY) starts with level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Those completing the course will be given ample preparation to pass an official German language proficiency test, a prerequisite for foreign students wishing to enrol at a German tertiary education institution.
Study German together with highly motivated international students! The course participants will take intensive German classes five days a week (24 units each 45min) and will be taught by experienced lecturers.
Extracurricular activities will be guided by tutors who are also available to help the course participants with any questions or problems that might arise.
