VWU courses are German language courses for students, who want to study at a Viennese university and whose mother tongue is not German nor do they have a C1 certificate.

These course, divided into 5 overlapping levels (AN, AG, EV, FG, WF), each of which lasts one semester, have to be absolved between 1 and, at most, 4 semesters. Depending on your evaluation you either have to attend all or only a part of those course levels. Goal is to reach the EPD (Supplementary examination in German), which is a pre-requisite to be allowed to study at a Viennese university.

    Do not send any relatives or friends!
  • Bring the receipt of the payment for the German course with you!

After you've enroled, you'll receive:
