The German courses on behalf of the Research Academy Leipzig are tailored to foreign researchers (doctoral candidates or postdocs) of the University of Leipzig as well as of co-operating research institutes in Leipzig.
Participants can register for these courses at interDaF using an application form. The Research Academy Leipzig finally decides who is entitled to take part in the courses.
Terms of Payment
By registering, participants agree to a co-payment of €90 (course “First steps”) or €45 (all other courses) per course. 1 They will get detailed information regarding the method of payment on the first day of language instruction.
For participants of non-university institutions, separate rules may apply in consultation with the Research Academy Leipzig.
Course Level Assignment
The participants can choose a particular course (and level) on the registration form. Final placement in a particular course level is based on the results of the placement test or on the assessed knowledge acquired in previous courses offered by Leipzig University.
If participants miss the test without notifying interDaF, the course place will be passed on and the registration will be cancelled. The same applies to the unexcused absence at the first lesson.
A cancellation of the course without co-payment is only possible in the first week of the course, i.e. after the first lesson by the latest. The participants have to unsubscribe in writing at interDaF (e.g. email@example.com).
From the second lesson onwards, the co-payment will be invoiced.
All participants who attend at least 80% of the lessons are awarded a certificate. They can collected this certificate at Research Academy Leipzig about two weeks after the end of the German course.
