+  Who is this offer for?

The FSZ language-learning program is available to students of all faculties as well as employees of Bielefeld University and - within a limited context - to students and employees of FH Bielefeld who register as guests in the ekVV for university courses, for example with "Fhklaus.mustermann". Students with particular curriculum requirements take precedence when allocating spaces.

Due to organisational reasons employees of Bielefeld University are asked to register as guests in the eKVV as well, but with the prefix MA (e.g. MAerika.musterfrau).

The program is not available to older or visiting students. There is no legal claim to any type of course in our language-instruction catalogue or a place in any of the courses we offer. In addition, even after allocation courses can be cancelled or dates changed.
