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. 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.

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. To do this, log on to StudIP, go to "Course search" at the bottom right, and then go to "Lehrangebote für Studierende aller Fakultäten". There you will find the "Leibniz Language Centre" and its courses.

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). In the event of technical problems, it is possible to take the placement test again in absolutely exceptional cases.

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