The Language Learning Centre (SLZ) is a central academic facility of Cologne University of Applied Sciences. It is a department of the Centre for Academic Qualifications and Advanced Training (ZaQwW).
At present, the SLZ is offering modular semester courses in German as a Foreign Language, English, French and Spanish for students who have already commenced their studies at the University of Applied Sciences, including exchange students. The courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and range from levels A1 to C2, depending on the language taught.
Online registration is required for admittance to our courses; students who have no certification clearly indicating their level of competence as defined by the CEFR need to do a placement test prior to the registration period.
For further information about our courses please contact:

In the beginning of the summer term, there will be a Welcome Meeting for all the freshmen of the MA and BA »Integrated Design«.
Social Class Project
This project starts in the beginning of the summer term. Similar to the »Cologne Resources« in the Bachelor’s program project, you will work on a defined topic very intensely for at least one week. You will get to know the other students and gain some knowledge of the resources of KISD and Cologne. At the end of the project, you will have a public presentation of the observations and results of the project.
Project and seminar start
One week after the end of the »Social class project« the regular projects and seminars start. Please check the curricular calendar (it will be published on our website in the beginning of August) to get to know the projects and seminars that are offered at KISD, but also the events that are especially for you as MA »Integrated Design« students.
You will be able to take part in a few projects and seminars offered in the curricular calendar of KISD, but you will not select your courses the same way as the BA students. More detailed information about the course selection process and the structure of your studies you will get at the Welcome Meeting.
