University of Bremen

German as a foreign language for students on Exchange Programmes and on International Courses

The University of Bremen offers 8 hours of instruction per week in the German language for free if your proficiency level is below B2.

You can also attend German language courses to prepare for one of the internationally recognised certificates of the Goethe-Institute or to prepare for the university entrance examination, TestDaf. You will, however, have to pay fees for these courses.

You can find more information on the link Entgeltordnung of the FZHB, on Goethe-Institut and on International Office University of Bremen.
