Preparatory German course for the University of Applied Sciences Münster (FH Münster)
The German course for the University of Applied Sciences Münster is aimed at people who have registered as prospective students with the university. You can only be registered on this course by the University of Applied Sciences.
Lessons have a clear structure and are oriented towards the European Reference Framework. Modern media, up-to-date course material and the combination of text and vocabulary work, grammar, phonetics and conversation make effective learning possible. The classes are small and made up of people from various countries, and the emphasis is always on the practical use of language, i.e. on the participants’ ability to speak and understand.
After a placement test and an interview at KAPITO you are assigned to classes which correspond to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The CEFR levels distinguish between language ability in reading, listening, writing and reading:
- A1 and A1 = elementary
- B1 and B2 = independent
- C1 = competent
As a rule, it takes 8 weeks to successfully complete a level. The B2 and C1 levels normally take longer than 8 weeks. At the end of each course participants receive a certificate with a grade.
If you would like to find out more about the levels, you can download the CEFR global scale here.
