Languages for specific purposes


In addition to our "classical" language courses, we would also like to draw your attention to our language courses with a specific focus.

In the winter semester we offer a multilingual Romance language course as well as the courses "Learn German and Make Radio" (in cooperation with the  Radiofabrik Salzburg) and the course "Proposal Writing for National Funding Programs" (in cooperation with the Research Service of the University of Salzburg).

In this context, we would  also like point out  that we also offer subject-specific courses in German and English in the areas of scientific or business English. These special courses are 2 semester hours per week and are worth 3 ECTS credits, whilst the "Proposal Writing for National Funding Programs" course comprises 1 semester hour and is worth 1.5 ECTS credits.
