German Courses for international students and employees in English speaking study programs and contexts

Join the international learning community at PunktUm!

Even if you are able to conduct most of your studies in English or your native language, a basic command of German may be helpful during the course of your stay in Germany. At PunktUm, you can select from a number of different German language courses to achieve this.
PunktUm consists of a team of dedicated staff members who are well-educated to train the small groups of participants and who will provide assistance in overcoming language and cultural barriers which may arise when studying in a foreign country in a foreign language.

Who is eligible?

The following people are eligible for our German courses:

  • Students/PhD students of Bielefeld University in English and multilingual study programmes
  • Employees of Bielefeld University
  • Exchange students (erasmus students, language assistants)
  • Double degree students
  • Family members of the mentioned groups

Exchange students please register in the International Office (


We offer German courses from A1.1 to C1.2 level.

It is also possible to join after the course has started, except for absolute beginners.

If you do not have a language certificate or you are unsure of your level, please take our free placement test for finding out your current level.

If you find out that the language level is not suitable for you, the course can be adjusted at short notice, even after the course has been started.

The placement tests for the summer semester 2024 semester courses will take place on 4 April at 11 a.m. in room C01-264.

Registration is not necessary.

You will then find the results here on the homepage on the following day.
