Sprachenzentrum_AB ©Heide Fest

Due to the international orientation of the European University Viadrina, learning foreign languages is an integral part of almost all study programmes.The Viadrina Language Centre is the central, academic institution responsible for planning and implementing the acquisition of competences in foreign languages and intercultural communication.

The language course programme leads from the acquisition of basic knowledge to the acquisition of language competencies needed for specific purposes in academic contexts.

The course programmes and certificates delivered by the Viadrina Language Centre are accredited within UNIcert®, the inter-university framework ensuring the quality of foreign language education and testing at the university (in Germany and beyond) and certifiying the ability to act in a foreign language in the context of studies and academic professions. They are thus based on the Council of Europe's Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and its recently published Companion Volume.
