Dear International Students,
Welcome to Nuertingen-Geislingen University and congratulations that you decided to study abroad in Germany.
We strive to make Nuertingen-Geislingen University attractive to international students. We understand that some students do not feel comfortable communicating in German and that following classes taught in German might be a problem. To keep this language barrier as low as possible, Nuertingen-Geislingen University has developed a “Course Catalogue for International Students. A Guide to Selected Classes Instructed in English”. We offer more than 60 lectures taught in English for students from one of our more than 50 international partner institutions around the globe.
Please don’t worry about your German language skills: all students and professors speak English. Taking classes and communicating on campus is not a problem, even if you are not fluent in German. Daily life off campus might be more difficult since English language skills vary in the German population. Therefore, we offer German language instruction at different levels and recommend regular attendance so that you come back after one or two semesters and can speak another foreign language.
A few courses have corequisites, which must be taken together with the course in question. Information about pre- and corequisites, and other recommended experiences, is given in the course description section in this catalogue. Students are responsible for ensuring that any prerequisites have been met before enrolling in a course. Some courses are only offered in one semester each year either in “spring/summer” or in “fall/winter”. A few courses have limited places and are allocated on a first come, first served basis. This selection of courses is updated regularly and subject to changes.
