Education: Courses outside the University
You can sign up for everything from learning a language to computer classes and sports classes with the Volkshochschule (adult education center), which is not part of the University. Program brochures are distributed to Göttingen households in February and August, but are also available in the internet. Charges for the classes are comparatively low and students pay a reduced charge.
The Göttingen Goethe Institute offers language classes at all levels throughout the year. Special courses help prepare students interested in taking the Test DaF exam, which is one of the requirements for attending a university in Germany, unless a student enroll in a program which ist entirely taught in English.You can sign up for all classes either in writing or in person. Fees are generally debited from your bank account.
