Visiting Students: Erasmus & Study Abroad

German Studies is keen to encourage internationalisation and diversity in its teaching and research, and one way that we do this is by opening up our courses to visiting international students. The following should give Erasmus and Year Abroad students some idea of the broad range of courses currently available to them at the Department of German.

Language Courses

The following courses are suitable for non-native speakers of German:

GN110 Grundkurs Sprache 1 (Beginners/Intermediate)
GN120 Grundkurs Sprache 2 (Beginners/Intermediate)
GN210 Grundkurs Sprache 3 (Intermediate)
GN220 Grundkurs Sprache 4 (Intermediate)
GN310 Grundkurs Sprache 5 (Advanced)
GN320 Grundkurs Sprache 6 (Advanced)

Students who wish to enrol for these courses should attend the introductory meeting at the beginning of the year and fill out a departmental Registration Form.

Translation

The following courses are particularly suitable for visiting Erasmus students:

GN333 Translation for Erasmus Students (German into English)
