Language Requirements

A variety of courses and seminars will be taught in English or in German or both English and German combined in such a way that all course information and material will be accessible to speakers of German and English.

We require English or German language skills on such a level that participants are able to communicate and express themselves, understand complex and professional topics, and are able to fulfil assigned tasks in either English or German, depending on the course language. When registering for a course, please take notice of the language it is offered in.
