*In order to be admitted to the Vorkurs Deutsch all participants are required to take part in an online placement test (onSET-Deutsch) on the first day of the course.*

Participation in the online placement test is mandatory. The individual arrival in Berlin must be scheduled before the first day of class. For exceptions, please see the General Terms and Conditions.

Course implementation in spring 2021

Update (February 2, 2021): As of today it has been decided to fully teach the spring 2021 Vorkurs Deutsch online (100 %). The reason for this are the stricter entry requirements for international students as well as the need to quarantine upon entering the country.

*As long as there are restrictions due to the Corona pandemic, it’s possible that the placement test will take place online before the start of the course. The Vorkurs participants will be informed about this in time.
