Course Description

Researching courses on an Austrian university homepage can sometimes be difficult and confusing. You can use the ISEP Guide to Course Selection  to find information about navigating a university website, finding courses in both English and German and some translations of common words and major fields of study. Students who want to take German-taught classes must have completed the equivalent of two years of college German (German level B2) prior to the start of their exchange semester.

You can research courses in the UNIGRAZonline course guide:

Uni Graz can also accept students with less or no German background provided they find enough English-taught classes to meet their home university's requirements. If you are not only interested in German-taught classes but also want to add an English-taught class to your workload you can research English-taught classes at Uni Graz via our Search engine for English-taught classes.

Typically full year students concentrate on improving their German skills during the first semester and take subject-specific classes during the second semester. Participation in the intensive pre-semester German course is mandatory for students intending to take German-taught classes.
