Registration for Language Courses (Stud.IP)

During the registration period, students may sign up for language courses 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.

Registration period for the winter semester 2020/21

25 September - 16 October 2020 (12:00 noon)

via Stud.IP


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 in either English, German or Spanish, you must take a placement test before signing up for a course. Once you have received your results, you may register for your chosen language course.

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