Language Courses in the CDS
Language courses in the CDS program are offered by the RWTH Aachen Sprachenzentrum. The Language Center's participation requirements and registration deadlines apply. You can register for your desired courses on its website. The same applies to the courses "Conference English" und "Scientific Writing."
If you have applied for a spot in one of the Language Center's language courses, please check your user account to see if you have received a spot. You will not be additionally informed via email.
You will need your TIM username to register through the Language Center. If you do not have a TIM username, you can get a temporary one through the CDS. To do so, please contact the CDS office.
A certain level of language skills must be proven for some language courses. You can do this through a placement exam before beginning the language course, for example. Please contact the Language Center to find out if this applies to you.
Language courses begin the second week of the semester. Please pay attention to any changes in the schedule mentioned in the course description.
Language Courses in the German Language Program
In collaboration with the International Office, the CDS offers participation in the German Language Program courses, which are four hours a week every semester. This offer is organized by the RWTH Aachen Language Center.
If you wish to take advantage of the other German courses the Language Center offers that are longer than four hours a week, please register directly with the Language Center . These offers are not part of the CDS program and thus have a fee.
As a CDS member you will get all the information about the registration process separately.
