Credit-point Courses - Spanish for Economists

There are a total of four separate Economic Spanish courses (A-B-C-D) within the scope of the Economic Spanish credit-point courses.  Only one course (A or B or C or D) is offered on a rotating basis each semester.

  1. Bachelor students in their study year of consolidation and specialization (s. PO §8).
  2. Online enrolment for the chosen course during the stipulated enrolment time (4.10.2021 until 15.10.2021).  Enrolment is on a ‘first come first served’ basis. After the online enrolment for Spanish for Economists Credit-Point Courses has ended, a later e-mail enrolment is only possible for students of our Faculty who have in the past already successfully completed one of our Spanish for Economists Credit-Point Courses, and, of course, if there are any vacant places available on these courses.
  3. Due to the pandemic, the Foreign Languages for Economists Department has decided to cancel the qualifying test for the winter semester 2021/22.
    Lessons will commence from 18 October onwards.
    You will be required to present an official document proving your language abilities (B2.2 Certificate) when registering.
    Students will not be able to register without one of the above certificates.
