Language requirements and language courses

Studying in Germany is the perfect chance to improve your German language skills. Exchange students should keep in mind that most courses at German universities are taught in German. There are only a few lectures offered in English. So if you want to participate in your seminars and lectures as soon as you begin, you should get your German skills up to speed before arriving in Münster.

Another option is to participate in a language course during your first semester in Münster and then attend seminars and lectures starting in your second semester.
