Would you like to improve your German? This is a great opportunity for you to apply for a University Summer Language Course Grant in 2013 ! Every summer, a number of German universities offer a broad range of three- to four-week language courses which focus on literary, cultural, political and economic aspects of contemporary Germany. They also offer extra-curricular activities which complement the classes.
Undergraduate students in all disciplines, enrolled full-time at universities in Ireland or the UK are eligible
. Students need to be able to follow lectures in German and participate in discussions. Minimum language requirements for the UK are A2 for beginners and B1 for students with previous knowledge of German (see Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
). The courses applied for must be taught exclusively in German and last a minimum of 18 days. Students in their final year of study may only apply if they are going to undertake postgraduate study immediately following their first degree.
The grant awarded is €850 and is intended as a contribution to the course fees and living expenses for a three-to four-week summer course. Travel grants are not available.
Please note that the complete application must be submitted by Friday, 30th of November 2012.
