The Department German as a Foreign Language
Welcome to the homepage of Department German as a Foreign Language!
On the pages that follow, you will find full information about our German as a Foreign Language (Deutsch als Fremdsprache) courses.
International students at the Heinrich Heine University can participate in an extensive German language programme free of charge alongside their degree courses. The courses range from Elementary Level (Grundstufe) to Advanced Level (Oberstufe) and include grammar, phonetics and listening, speaking and writing skills. Courses on the history and culture of the City of Düsseldorf complete our programme of German courses.
Please note that this programme is only open to duly enrolled students and visiting scholars of Heinrich Heine University.
We offer international university applicants the possibility of taking the Test of German as a Foreign Language (Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache - TestDaF) before they begin their degree courses.
