Europanetzwerk Deutsch
EU courses in Germany

With our EU-courses we would like to support you in further professionalising your German language skills in your daily work environment. Additionally, we would like to establish an active network in your professional life, which will bring you into contact with other German-speaking colleagues in Europe. With a scholarship the EU-courses support you individually in such a way that you achieve the greatest possible learning success. The focus is on the topics of the European Union as well as insight into German institutions, ministries and cultural facilities.

Apply for the program Europanetzwerk Deutsch if you

  • are staff at an EU institution or staff at a ministry in the EU member states or EU candidate countries (ideally in a management position) with working relationships to the EU institutions,
  • already possess a strong command (B2/C1) of the German language and would like to improve your German for the benefit of your career,
  • want to network even more in the EU.
