Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
The registration process varies depending on the course. An explanation of the different process as they apply to each language is provided under the link >Registraion< in the right hand menu (or click here).

If you miss the registration deadline, you still have a chance to sign up for your desired language course during the fee payment period – provided there are free spaces still available.
If the course is full, then you can inquire again on the second day of the payment period between 4 and 4.30 pm. Registered participants who didn't show up to pay the course fee forfeit their places in the courses. These are then offered to others starting at 4 pm.
If for some reason you cannot attend the first lesson of the course, please inform us in advance (either when you pay the course fee or by e-mail, phone, etc.). Otherwise, you will automatically lose your place in the course.
You can access the current course schedule on our website under Language Courses. The course schedules are also posted in the corridor of the Language Centre.
