Services in the area of language and cultural support 

The staff at PunktUm is made up of qualified teachers of German as a Foreign Language who specialise in academic and general language courses and cultural courses for international students, doctoral students or visiting lecturers. Those wishing to graduate from Bielefeld University, or who are on short-term exchange programmes or on a research stay can use these services.

We work together with you if you are supervising international BA or MA students and wish to have academic language support for your students. Existing free courses for BA can be found here , for MA students here . The courses listed here accompany your tuition and help students to manage academic language and subject challenges in German.

For your Master students or doctoral students in the English language tracks or in the Bielefeld graduate schools we offer intensive training in German on six different levels. The courses deal with themes that are necessary to cope with situations within and outside the university. You can find out about courses on offer  here .

We would be happy to advise you if you are thinking of creating an international oriented course and would like to keep an eye on the German language needs of your target group and the costs involved from the very start. You can find further information here .

The PunktUm offers were funded or received awards by the DAAD in previous years and served as a model to numerous other universities to develop similar courses. You can find out about our various activities here .

Internationalisation continually creates new questions and challenges and we are more than happy to answer them. Unfortunately, we are not able to list all offers from PunktUm here. Please contact me if you are looking for or wish for a particular course.
Heike Brandl, M.A.
