Sprachkursangebot am ZFA/RUB

A contingent of places is reserved for UW/H students in courses at the Center for Foreign Language Education (ZFA) at Ruhr University Bochum. A total of 30 places are available. When allocating places, priority will be given to students who are planning to study abroad.

Registration can be done via the link: http://www.zfa.rub.de/lehre/anmeldung/index.html.de.

For organizational reasons, emails MUST be sent from your official UW/H mail account (Vorname.Name@uni-wh.de). Emails from private or other email senders will not be accepted for the UW/H contingent. Please be sure to follow the instructions there to register!

Please refer to the ZFA course catalog at: http://www.zfa.rub.de/index.html.de for the appropriate details for the course you have chosen.

Here you can also see for which day and time the desired course is scheduled. Please also consider your obligations during the semester when making your selection!

Multiple requests may be indicated, and the final selection will depend on the availability of places in each course.

For more information on language courses, contact and travel, please go online to: http://www.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/zfa/.

For some courses the placement test is obligatory! You can only apply for the course level determined by the placement test. Dates and registration procedures for the placement tests can be found here: http://www.zfa.rub.de/lehre/einstufung/termineeinstufungen.html.de.

Each UW/H student can only take one course place from the UW/H contingent. (It is possible to attend additional courses, but you will be required to pay for them.) During the first class session, you will confirm your course attendance to the instructor, otherwise your place will be forfeited. At the end of the semester/course, you must register online for a final exam.

If you do not show up for the final exam, if you do not pass the final exam, or if you drop out of the course, we will be required to charge you the costs incurred by UW/H of 120 euros per seat.

The language certificates will be sent to you personally electronically by the RUB after the end of the course or after the last exam.

Information on registration deadlines will be sent to UW/H students by circular email.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at international-office@spam protectuni-wh.de.
