Inte­gra­tion course

Inte­gra­tion cours­es are lan­guage cours­es that help you to become a part of Ger­man soci­ety. The inte­gra­tion course includes both a lan­guage course and a ori­en­ta­tion course that gives you impor­tant his­tor­i­cal, polit­i­cal and cul­tur­al back­ground infor­ma­tion about the country. 

You should attend an inte­gra­tion course if you do not yet have a suf­fi­cient knowl­edge of the Ger­man language:

  •  If you are new to Karl­sruhe and come from a coun­try out­side the UE, you have the right to attend one inte­gra­tion course.
  • If you have been liv­ing in Ger­man for a longer peri­od of time or are an EU cit­i­zen, you can also be admit­ted to the cours­es if places are available. 
  • If you are Ger­man cit­i­zen, but do not have suf­fi­cient knowl­edge of the Ger­man lan­guage and want to inte­grate more effec­tive­ly, you can also be admit­ted to the cours­es if place are available.
