The German courses on behalf of the Graduate Academy Leipzig are tailored to foreign researchers (doctoral students and postdocs) of Leipzig University as well as of co-operating research institutes in Leipzig.
Starting October 1, 2023, participation in German courses will be reserved for registered members of the Graduate Academy Leipzig. You will be able to enroll as a member starting March 1, 2023. For all information on how to enroll as a member of the Graduate Academy of Membership, please visit the website of Graduate Academy.
Participants can register for these courses at interDaF using an application form. The Graduate 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 €55 per course. They will get detailed information regarding the method of payment during the language course.
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 an online placement test or on the assessed knowledge acquired in previous courses offered by Graduate Academy Leipzig.
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.
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. If you would like obtain a certificate, please contact the Leipzig Graduate Academy by e-mail.
