In summer, we offer the course “Technical German for Medicine” within the framework of Aachener Sprachsommer of FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences.

The four-week programme takes place in July and August and is aimed at advanced learners who seek to improve their professional German skills in international groups while experiencing the multifaceted German way of life. The lessons focus on the following topics related to the field of medicine: the German health care system; medical insurance in Germany; communication with colleagues, superiors, patients, and relatives in the work environment; written reports; scientific texts; and other topics depending on the special interests. You will improve your written and oral language skills in order to communicate with ease in study and work contexts. Group and project tasks allow a creative use of the German language. In addition, subject-specific excursions will give you insight into the professional life in the field of medicine, thus rounding off the programme.

Upon regular and successful completition of the course,  you will receive 5 ECTS ECTS-System:

-points and a certificate.

You can either attend the course in person in Aachen or online: If you participate online, you will be connected to the lessons live via camera and can actively participate while completing all class activities from your current location.

Students can book a room or a bed in student accommodation for the duration of the course.
In addition to the course, a varied cultural and leisure programme is offered for all participants. Furthermore, our European excursions to Amsterdam and Paris are planned for two weekends: These interesting tours are optional and incur additional fees which can be paid upon arrival in Aachen. The realisation depends on the current Corona situation and possible travel restrictions.

For more information about the accommodation options as well as the leisure programme, please click here:

The following room types are offered:

  • Single room: €520.00
  • Bed in twin room: € 320.00

All rooms are located close to Aachen’s city centre. Bathrooms and kitchens are shared between several residents. You can move into your room one day before the start of your course and stay until the day after your course ends.
You can book your accommodation at the same time as you book your course (see booking form). The number of available rooms is limited. Early booking is therefore recommended.

Even in your free time, you can expand your language skills – and learn a lot about Aachen and its surroundings. Several days a week you have the opportunity to participate in various free activities as part of the cultural and leisure programme. These include, for example: the welcome meeting, a walk to the border triangle of Germany-Belgium-Netherlands, a games evening, movie nights with films in German and visits to public events in Aachen.

These activities are generally free of charge (if necessary, costs for bus rides within Aachen and costs for catering during the events may be incurred).
