Semester Courses

Language Courses

In general, the "Semester Courses" run parallel to the university term: during the winter term from October until February and during the summer term from April until July. The courses take place once to thrice a week and the fees are determined by the number of teaching units (Semesterwochenstunden - SWS) and the participant's "status" (student/external/...).

Our courses are divided into different categories:

  • General Language Courses for various language levels.
  • Courses Preparing for Certificates like the IELTS or TOEFL tests.
  • Academic English focusing on academic writing, presentations, academic conversation or subject specific terminology, such as medical English.
  • Additionally, there are 4-week intensive courses in February, March, July, August and September. You can find out more about these courses here.


Important: Please note that general English courses at SLI are not recognised as BOK courses. English for Specific Purposes courses can be recognised as BOK courses.
