2. Placement test: After having received an automatically generated confirmation note by email all participants have to accomplish the placement test (without support) within the registration period. Participants having no prior knowledge of the German language need not take the test. Deceiving leads to immediate exclusion from the course. Participants without prior knowledge of the German language are automatically assigned to basic level 1. Important : If you haven't received the automatically generated confirmation note by email you need not register. Please notify us if you have not received any email.

3. Result of Placement test / Course selection: After expiration of the registration/enrolment deadline participants will receive further information as to courses, coursebooks and timetable. Participants will be individually notified about the results achieved and be then entitled to choose the appropiate class. You can find an Overview of Advanced Level Modules (in German version only) in  Downloads

Timetables are displayed in UniVis.

Important: Only students who register within the registration period are entitled to take part in our evening classes programme.

4. Confirmation of Course/Invitation to Welcome Meeting: Following the class selection the Lektorat assigns participants a  place in class and sends a confirmation together with the invitation to the obligatory Welcome Meeting. This meeting usually takes place the Friday before classes start. Important : The Lektorat cannot guarantee participation.

We look forward to welcome you in our German language programme and hope you have a successful stay at Kiel University.
