Information about intensive courses during semester break

For courses during semester break an administrative fee ist charged:

  • For students at FAU: 25 Euros per SWS

  • For non-students or students of other universities: 30 Euros per SWS

  • The number of SWS can vary depending on the course, normally it is between 4 - 6 SWS.
    More information about this fee at Ferienkurse (german only)
    Please take notice of the fact that bank transfers require some processing time. We would ask you to present your transfer receipt at our secretary's office at Bismarckstraße 10, so we can admit you provisionally.
    Beginning students of spanish and italian language may request a refund after they have enrolled as FAU students.

    Participating in language courses as non-student

    If you are not enrolled at FAU as a student you will need to pay for language courses. This fee is not the same as the enrolment fee for guest students - you will need to pay both!
    More information on the topic:
    Fees for courses.
    This also concerns intensive courses during semester break - see above.
