FUBiS offers intensive and semi-intensive German language classes at up to five different proficiency levels. For more advanced students FUBiS offers a Business German course.

Semi-intensive German language classes meet three days a week whereas intensive German classes meet every weekday. FUBiS also offers subject classes, which meet two days a week. These classes are held mostly in English by distinguished German or international faculty.

Program Structure

The FUBiS program offers students many choices:

  • Combination of language and subject classes. This allows students to improve their language skills as well as to further their knowledge on a subject matter.
  • Combination of two subject classes, which may count toward a major or minor at the home institution.
  • Participation in either one semi-intensive German class or in one subject class.
  • Intensive German language classes. These classes meet every weekday and allow students to focus on and thus considerably improve their German skills.
