First time enrolment in German language courses

If you are enrolling in the beginners' course

Places in GERMAN 101 and GERMAN 101G are strictly limited to students with no or very basic knowledge of the language. Before enrolling please make sure that you have carefully read the course descriptions in the course catalogue on Student Services Online and German.

We will assess your Language Ability Declaration and check your student record.

  • If you are eligible we will email you to confirm. Initiate the enrolment process on Student Services Online if you have not already done so.
  • This is a waitlisted course. Your enrolment will be completed by the Arts Students’ Centre once your Language Ability Declaration has been approved.
  • If you may be eligible for a higher course we will email you to advise.
     

If you are enrolling in a course above beginners' level

If your first enrolment in a German language course is above beginners’ course (GERMAN 101 or 101G) you will need to sit an online confirmation test prior to enrolment and no later than six days before the beginning of semester. Your students’ centre will check that this course can be included in your programme, as well as other eligibility criteria. If all criteria are met you will be enrolled. It may take up to 20 working days for your enrolment to be finalised, so please start the process early.

1. We will assess your Language Ability Declaration and check your student record. We aim to respond to you within five working days.

2. We will give you access to the Online Confirmation Test and send the password to you by email.

3. At the end of the test you will receive an immediate response advising you that either we will approve your concession request for that course or your result does not match expectations, in which case you will be given the password for the higher or lower course. If your results for the second test match expectations you will receive an immediate response advising you that we will approve your concession request.

4. We will also confirm your eligibility via email.

5. If you are an Arts student, the Arts Students’ Centre will check further details. If everything is in order they will finalise your enrolment. If you are not an Arts student your leading faculty students' centre will check further details. If everything is in order they will finalise your enrolment. This may take 5-10 working days.

6. Please check Student Services Online for any further information regarding your enrolment in this course.
