Language Centre

Welcome to the Language Centre!

The Language Centre is a central facility at the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences, which coordinates the entire range of language tuition offered. Language lessons are taught by a team of seven special lecturers and around 25 part-time lecturers at both the Weihenstephan and Triesdorf campuses.

We provide all students from across every department with the opportunity to learn a new foreign language or to develop their existing level of expertise during the course of their bachelor’s or master’s studies so that they can use these skills in a professional setting. We teach a diverse number of courses across ten different languages, five of which are offered as part of the university-exclusive course and certification system UNIcert®. Students can take tailored courses to help them prepare for work placements and study periods abroad, as well as to broaden their intercultural skills. Meanwhile, a variety of courses in German as a foreign language are available to international students at the Language Centre.

The Language Centre also runs comprehensive assessment tests twice a semester. Open to all students, these tests are used to place students on courses that are at the right level for them or to provide students with evidence of their language skills for applications for scholarships.

The Language Centre is happy to advise students in person about the general and specialist language courses on offer, term-time classes, intensive courses during university holidays, our assessment system, the UNIcert® certificate and language proficiency certificates for outgoing students. Please do not hesitate to send us an email or drop in to see us!
