Orientation & Language

In most international master programs, no knowledge of German is required at the beginning of the studies.

However during the study period students have to attend German language courses at the University of Kaiserslautern and pass the A1-level exam for the enrolment and higher level exams to obtain possible ECTS credit points for their studies. The level of required knowledge may defer from program to program.

To facilitate your studies and daily life, the ISGS offers an 'Orientation Course' (O.K.) as an integrated intensive language courses at the beginning of your studies.
