Summer term 2020 - German courses - general information

  • All information concerning German courses at Zessko are preliminary. Corresponding to the situation we decide which German courses could actually start.
  • There will definitely be no classroom-based courses before 20th April 2020. Most courses will initially be provided as online tutoring (presumably from 27th April) and switched over to classrom-based teaching and learning as soon as possible.
  • Furthermore we will not open our German office for personal consultation during the enrolment week 2nd to 8th April.
  • UP bachelor students holding a DSH or TestDaF certificate enrol as usual via PULS, admission day is 8th April 2020.
  • Students who successfully finished Zessko German courses during the winter term  could apply for next level German courses via e-mail (see contact).
  • All new students need to take a placement test. We try to provide testing and enrolment as an online procedure. More information on this will be published here. Unfortunately, placement tests will not be available on 1st April. Please see this web page for current information.
