Registration for Language Courses (Stud.IP)

During the registration period, students may sign up for up to 3 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.

Find the right course

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.

Assessment and Registration

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 want to apply for a course at A1 (A1.1. or A1.2), please do not take a placement test. However, 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.

Distribution of places

Registration for semester courses is possible from 23.09.2022 (from 12:00 noon) until 14.10.2022 (12:00 noon). On 14.10.2022 at 12:00 noon there will be a lottery of spots in which spots will be allocated. If courses have vacancies, you may sign up or be put on the wait list until 04.11.2022.

We offer a form for prioritized course registration if you urgently need to take a language course. As the LLC is not open to the public at the moment, we ask that you send us your completed application for prioritized course registration by e-mail (pelamatti@llc.uni-hannover.de or zimon-koslowski@llc.uni-hannover.de). In addition, we need an e-mail from an institute staff member confirming your application. The completed form and the confirming e-mail of the institute staff member must be received by us by 13 October 2022 at 12:00 noon. Please note: The form for prioritized course registration may only be submitted after you have registered for the course in StudIP.

Information for Guest Students and Students of other Universities in Hannover

Guest students of Leibniz Universität Hannover or students of other Hanoverian universities can register for remaining places from the Monday of the second week of lectures. Guest students should first register at the guest student office within the ZEW (Central Office for Continuing Education) in order to gain access to Stud.IP.  Students from other Hanover universities should first contact the respective teacher. After their approval, they can then contact the LLC secretariat by email and with a copy of their semester ID to get access to Stud.IP; they can then register for remaining places there. Both groups may still 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.
