The summer university welcomes all students who are interested in studying German in an international atmosphere and also would like to prepare for their studies at a German university.
The language classes offered at the Summer University in Bayreuth combine both language acquisition and the development and training of intercultural competence. The classes are based on current topics in Germany. Additionally, grammar structures as well as speech and dialogue exercises are practised with material that reflects real-life situations.
Within each level, all courses deal with the following regional topics with varying degrees of difficulty:
- Germany through foreign eyes
- Everyday life in Germany
- Regional variety
- Cultural variety
At the Summer University Bayreuth, you have the chance to meet students from more than 40 countries. The culturally diverse backgrounds of the students turn discussions into a personal experience and a source of knowledge.
The language courses consist of 25 hours of teaching per week. You can choose between the following language levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced level.
Our weekly programme will be rounded off by additional offers like seminars, intercultural workshops, workshops for pronunciation and scientific German, movie nights, sports, get-togethers and parties. These additional offers amount to at least 10 hours per week.
