  1. Information
    • Please read the detailed course information to be found on the webpage of the relevant language. Please note: the letter after the name of a course e.g. Italian 1b denotes a parallel course (at the same level). It is not necessary to begin with the "a" course.
    • English courses have specific entry requirements e.g. a placement test (see here). English, French, Spanish and Italian Intensive courses are offered in the lecture free period. 
    • KIT students can take part in one free course per semester. All other participants, including students who would like to take additional courses, must pay.
  2. Registration Priority for Students Planning to Study Abroad
    • Students and KIT staff planning a stay abroad have priority for course places. Suitable documentary evidence (notification from their institute or the International Students Office and proof of matriculation) should be provided between Sept. 26th 2022 and Oct.14th 2022 at 12.30 pm. This also applies to students participating in the EUKLID program. A maximum of one priority course per semester is allowed. All documents should be sent to info∂ Afterwards, successful applicants will be sent a token (weblink) which will enable them to register online for one course.
  3. Main Registration
    • Online registration will be possible from Oct. 17th at 9am and Oct. 18th 2022 at 3 pm and can be accessed via our website. Registration is open to students and staff at all Karlsruhe universities.
    • You can apply for a maximum of 2 courses. Course places will be randomly assigned on Oct. 19th 2022. After course places have been allocated, automatic emails will be sent during the day. Please do not call during that period.
      If you want to cancel your registration for a course, you can do this yourself via the link in your registration/confirmation email.
      If you have any questions, please contact the respective departments (English, French, Spanish) or the secretary for all other languages.
    • Any participants who have to pay for a course place should use bank transfer. KIT students who are told by the registration system that they must pay because their status as a student has not yet been confirmed should clarify their status (e.g. by showing a temporary student identification) with the Language Centre secretary (Room 313, Bldg. 50.20) or at the relevant department office (English / French / Spanish). Please do not transfer any money if this is the case. The same applies to anyone entitled to a reduction (e.g. BAFöG).  Please bring evidence of entitlement.
    • Course participants who do not attend the first class (without giving prior notice) will lose their place to a person on the waiting list.
    • Online registration is necessary for all courses.
    • Online registration is also necessary in order to be placed on a waiting list for a course which is full. 
  4. Payment
    • KIT students only need to pay for a second (or more) language course that they take in the same semester. All other participants must pay.
    • When? After registering for a course, you will receive an email (time-delayed) with information about payment. Please include all of the information requested in the automatic mail.
