- Please read the detailed course information to be found on the homepage of the relevant language. Please note: the letter after the name of a course e.g. Arabic 1b denotes a parallel course (at the same level). It is not necessary to begin with the "a" course.
- English courses have strict entry requirements e.g. placement tests (see English sites). Please note that English Intensive courses are offered in the semester break.
- KIT students can take part in one (1) free course per Semester. All other participants, including students who would like to take additional courses, must pay.
- 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. 25th and Oct. 5th 2017, 12:00 p.m.. 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∂spz.kit.edu. Afterwards successful applicants will be sent a token (weblink) which will enable them to register online for one course.
- Main Registration
- Online registration will be possible from Oct. 9th 2017, 9:00 a.m. and Oct. 10th 2017, 3:00 p.m. and can be accessed via our website (at "Anmeldung / Anmeldeformular"). Registration is open to students and staff at all Karlsruhe universities.

The likelihood of getting into a course is the same for every applicant regardless of the number of courses you apply for. After course places have been allocated, automatic emails will be sent during the day. Please refrain from calling during that period.
- Any participants who have to pay for a course place can choose their preferred method of payment (cash or 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 choose cash payment (BAR) and 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). Participants paying reduced fees should also come and bring evidence of their entitlement to a reduction e.g. BAFÖG to one of the payment appointments.
- Course participants who do not attend the first class (without giving prior notice) will lose their place to the first person on the waiting list.
- Online registration is necessary for all courses.
