Language Center of UZH and ETH Zurich

German as a foreign language and Swiss German

We offer a two separate programs, one for Bachelor’s and Master’s students, and the other for PhD/doctoral students, MAS students, academic staff, and alumni. Both programs contain a wide range of German-language courses that are set up according to language level. Additionally, from level B1 up, our courses deal with various skills, differing content, and a range of forms of work.

When you select a course, start by identifying courses at your own language level; then choose a specific course that meets your learning needs and interests, and which takes place at a time that suits you.
