German as a Foreign Language
As well as offering courses in foreign languages and using languages for special purposes, the LLI also offers courses in German as a Foreign Language. These courses are intended for foreign students who have not yet started a degree program at a German university or institute of higher education but have a "Zulassung" for the University of Wuppertal. The courses are also open to foreign students who want to improve their command of German although they have passed the DSH examination (“Deutsch Sprachprüfung Hochschulzugang/ Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang fremdsprachiger Studienbewerberinnen und Studienbewerber“) and are already in a degree program. There are also special courses for students of the humanities, of economics, and of the natural sciences and engineering.
