Language courses

Language courses relevant to exams are a curricular language course programme which is part of study and examination regulations of the degree programme. The course requirements completed as part of these courses will be included in the transcript of grades. The timetable for the language courses relevant to exams will be included in the timetable of the respective degree programme, i.e. you will find the courses in the timetable for each semester within the relevant examination regulations. The classification of each course according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) can be found on the page of each language.

On the other hand, there are additional language courses or general study language courses credited to the "General Studies Certificate". These language courses are part of the General Studies programme offered by the Centre for Study and Teaching which coordinates all extracurricular teaching and educational measures for students, including the range of courses offered by the Reinhold-Würth University at Campus Künzelsau.
