The DSH-Course - German for University Admission is a general and scientific language course that ends with the official DSH exam level 2. This corresponds to the level German C1 and allows you to start a course of study at the TU Ilmenau. It is offered to interested parties from all fields of study.

Prerequisite for participation is a valid admission to the study program for the winter semester 2020/21 at the TU Ilmenau.

The focus is on the development of the skills and abilities required in the exam.

The main points of focus are:   


  • listening comprehension

Monday to Friday four lessons will take place in the mornings and two additional sessions in the afternoons to prepare for the DSH exam.              

Rhetoric seminars help the participants of the groups to refine their expression and choice of words.

In phonetics lessons, we work on the systematic improvement of your pronounciation. Specially trained phonetics teachers offer these lessons as individual and group phonetics.

The course concludes with a language test, DSH level 2 and the award of a certificate.
