Information about the Language Centre in Nuremberg

In Nuremberg, the Foreign Languages Department in Nuremberg works closely with the respective language departments to offer language courses at the School of Business, Economics, and Society as well as for teaching degree students who are not studying languages (Regensburger Straße Campus). The language courses on offer are either integrated into degree programmes, taken alongside degree programmes or studied in addition to other degree programmes. UNIcert® Basis-III examinations can also be taken, leading to a certificate.

Students can find a detailed list of the various types of courses and options available for having credits obtained in language courses recognised as part of their degree programme on the page ECTS credits from language courses. The following is a brief outline of the most important information for students who would like to take a language course in Erlangen.

Who is responsible for students of English?

English courses for students at the School of Business, Economics, and Society are offered by the Language Centre (Nuremberg Campus). Students studying English as part of a teaching degree at the Regensburger Straße Campus should contact the Department of English for Students of English and American Studies.

Registering for courses and examinations

Students should generally register for language courses via the Language Centre’s own course management system (Oktis). Any exceptions are stated in the UnivIS entry for the respective course. Students with prior knowledge of a language usually have to take a placement test. As the university-wide examination administration system does not record all achievements, examination achievements in Nuremberg also have to be managed via Oktis.

Maps

Most of the courses offered by the Language Centre in Nuremberg are held in Lange Gasse and Findelgasse. The information desk for students, the secretary’s office and the staff’s offices are all located in Lange Gasse.
