Course times and Rooms

Why do the language courses always take place in the evening?

The language courses take place mainly in the evening, as they are offered in addition to the regular lectures and seminars of the Europa-Universität Flensburg . In order to enable the largest possible share of students and university staff to take part in language courses, the majority of the courses are scheduled for the late afternoon or early evening hours.

What can I do if I have registered for a language course but cannot attend it?

If students or staff cannot attend the desired course for time reasons, they have the possibility to change to another course of the same or different language (provided that there are still places available).

Are all levels offered in each semester?

No. In most languages, levels are only offered once a year.

Where do the language courses take place?

The language courses of the foreign language center take place both on the main campus of the Europa-Universität Flensburg and in the rooms of the "Außenstelle Munketoft" office (address: building MADRID, Munketoft 3b, 24937 Flensburg). The room numbers can always be found on the website under the respective course information.

In the fall semester 2020/21 and the spring semester 2021 all courses take place online via webex.


Can I get a certificate of achievement?

Yes, the certificates are issued automatically and will be sent to you via e-mail attachment.  Please note that the process can take up to eight weeks.

Which conditions are linked to the issuing of a certificate of achievement?
