Foreign Languages at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences: It Pays to Talk

Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg) encourages all students to learn at least one foreign language. For this reason, English is used in most degree programmes as the language of instruction in selected courses. All English courses are integrated into the degree programme curricula, and their content and structure are directed towards the needs of students. Some degree programmes are offered exclusively in English.

FH Vorarlberg offers the following language courses:

German Culture and Communication

Students whose first language is not German may enrol in our German as a foreign language courses. Not only do they develop their German language skills, they also learn about the cultural aspects of German-speaking countries.

During the Welcome Week students at FH Vorarlberg are placed in German groups according to their language levels.

The following courses are offered in both the winter and summer semesters:

  • German Culture and Communication: Beginners (2 ECTS)
  • German Culture and Communication: Beginners | Fast Track (2 ECTS)
  • German Culture and Communication: Intermediate | Advanced (2 ECTS)
