Thank you for your interest in our German as a foreign language intensive courses.

Since 1985, we offered intensive courses in German for non-native speakers (German as a foreign language) during the summer months of July and August. Approximately 4.500 participants from over 30 nations have already completed our programme.

The German intensive courses are part of the International Language Centre of the University of Innsbruck, which is know affectionately as isi. Every year at the isi - which is just one of the numerous service and support facilities offered by the University of Innsbruck - approximately 5.000 students and other interested persons attend courses selected from the broad range on offer in over 20 foreign languages.

Founded in 1669, and consisting of almost 27.000 students and over 4.000 employees, the University of Innsbruck is the largest and most important research and educational institution in western Austria. Approximately 36 percent of the students and 26 percent of the lecturers at the University of Innsbruck come from abroad, and many of them have been able to successfully im-
prove their German language skills at the isi.

We wish you a successful and enjoyable time learning German at our institute and also a pleasant stay in Innsbruck!
