The International Study Centre (ISC) / Language Centre offers all students and staff members of the University of Kassel as well as external users a multidisciplinary programme of language and key skills.

Foreign study applicants can prepare for the DSH (= Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang = Language Proficiency Test for German Higher Education Institutions).

Recognition of courses for your Study Programme

When registering for a course, always select your department and/or institute.

Our database then shows you whether you will receive credits for the course (all courses listed under "Studium International" with the exception of "Deutsch für das Berufsleben") or whether there is a possibility that you will receive credits (so-called sponsored places  ("Patenplätze"). Here, although the course costs may be covered by the relevant department, the recognition of any course for your study programme is subject to the approval of the examination department of the relevant department/institute).

Assessment (Prüfungsleistung) is mandatory for all courses at the Language Centre where ECTS are awarded.

Please Note:

- There are strict attendance regulations for our courses. Participants who miss too many classes will not be admitted to any final exam and will not receive any grades or credits.
- At the end of the course, you will receive your certificate from the Language Centre (we send an e-mail to course participants when the departmental office has prepared the certificates) and you can then take your certificate/s to your examination office. The Language Centre itself does not upload any grades to HISPOS!
