Registration for Language Courses (Stud.IP)

During the registration period, students may sign up for up to 4 language courses per semester via Stud.IP. The IBA-week, where you will receive specific information about our courses, takes place one week prior to the end of the registration period. After the registration period, you may only sign up for courses that have vacancies. Please do not register for the final exam of any language course; this is not necessary at the LLC.

Registration period for the winter semester 2021/22

24 September - 15 October 2021 (12:00 noon)

via Stud.IP

The next IBA-week takes place from

12 - 14 October 2021 (11:00 till 12:00 noon)


First choose a fitting language course and the respective level from our list of courses. We offer the IBA-week one week prior to the end of the registration period in order for you to better navigate our extensive offers for courses and tests.

Please check the course commentaries of the respective language course within the course catalog to see whether attendance is planned or not. In general, however, the language courses take place in online mode.


After you have found the right language course for your needs, you must register. Registration for language courses at the LLC is exclusively organised via Stud.IP. That means every student must apply for their desired course via Stud.IP.

Please note

If you are not an absolute beginner, passing a placement test in Stud.IP at the required level is mandatory for German, English and Spanish; for all other languages, either a certificate of achievement from the immediately preceding course or a passed placement test at the required level (see placement tests for languages other than German, English, Spanish)must be presented at the first session. In case of doubt, the instructor may additionally conduct an oral placement test (please also see our Guidelines).

The results of our placement tests are binding; we do not recognise other certificates such as TOEFL or DSH for the registration.

Guest students of the Leibniz Universität Hannover and students from other universities in Hannover may contact the lecturer on the first day of class to ask for free places. If a free place is available and you are not yet registered as a guest student, please contact the guest student office of ZEW (Central Office for Continuing Education) to do so and to get access to Stud.IP. You may then have to take a placement test in order to gain access to the desired course.

Please note the guidelines for our language courses and the fee regulation at the LLC.
