EBS Language Center

The EBS Language Center offers you the opportunity to learn a new language, improve an existing foreign language or prepare for language and entrance tests in the best possible way.

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.

We have taken this important insight into account since the founding of EBS Universität - and for this reason internationality has always been an important aspect of our studies.  Learning a foreign language provides not only the optimal preparation for the semester abroad, but also strengthens communication skills and provides the opportunity to deepen your cultural knowledge of how to live, work and be part of a culturally diverse global society.

Language Courses

Learn a foreign language

The EBS Language Center is the university’s central department for language learning. Its international team of qualified instructors offers students a wide range of general and specialized language courses at various levels of proficiency. Depending on the requirements of their study program, students take language courses as mandatory or extracurricular modules.


German Courses

International students can choose between a range of German language courses at different levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), to gain the necessary skills for their studies, everyday life and future career.  Courses are offered as both pre-semester intensive courses and in-sessional courses during the semester.


Foreign Languages

Learning a foreign language not only develops your communication skills, but also helps to increase your employability and social mobility in a global world. We offer language workshops in Chinese, French and Spanish as well as the use of a language app for targeted practice in the language of the country where you will spend your semester abroad.  As these extracurricular courses are offered based on demand, the range of courses can vary slightly per semester.

Preparation Courses

Prepare yourself in the best possible way

It would help if you did not underestimate language and general aptitude tests; they require a certain amount of preparation to achieve the desired result. We help you to maximise your test score and achieve success.

Undergraduate applicants who do not fulfill the EBS English language requirements may still qualify for admission conditional on participation in our English support course. Participants can choose between a pre-semester intensive course and an in-sessional course during the semester.

Students who plan to take the TOEFL iBT test can learn how to prepare effectively in order to significantly increase their test score.
