Vorsprung durch Deutsch

German is the most widely spoken language in the EU, and Germany is the largest export nation in the EU and third largest in the world. Learning German, therefore, can only enhance your future employment prospective, whatever your chosen career path.

Which level do I choose?

There are 10 levels (stage 1-10). The qualifications table will show you the most appropriate module for your level of language competence. Where GCSE qualifications are given, we assume these were taken 2-5 years ago.



Times for classes are dependent on the Keele undergraduate timetable and will be available from the beginning of the academic year.

We also run an exchange programme with Lüneburg University, offering students on our language modules the chance to get first-hand experience of language and culture during vacation periods –
