Semester programme and German courses
The University of Hildesheim offers during the semester a programme for international students which you can find here.
German Language courses
To help you to make a start in the German language, intensive courses on three different levels (beginners, intermediate and advanced) are held before the semester begins.
We offer two to three hours of German courses during the semester too.
There is a fee for the intensive course whereas the normal course held during the semester is free of charge.
Also, the International Office gives German and foreign students assistance in getting together to help each other to learn their respective languages (tandem programme). Registration forms for this are available in the introductory week or from the International Office.
Last but not least, you can apply for the Internationale Schreibpartnerschaft (Writing tandems). They are organized by the Lese- und Schreibzentrum. In this programme, students of the course teacher education accompany the language students and help them. You may find more information and the possibility to apply here.
