  • Which payment methods can I use?

    Students: Online payment, using the university’s online payment portal. Further information can be found on this webpage.

  • Will I receive a certificate after completion of the course?

    A certificate of attendance will be issued to those course participants who were present at and have actively taken part in at least 75% of the lessons. If a formal test is part of the course, then passing the test is also a condition to receiving a certificate.

  • Due to circumstances I cannot start the course for which I registered. Will I get my money back?

    Cancellation by the course participant is possible only BEFORE registration closes. Candidates should contact the UT Language Centre in writing, stating full personal and course details. Course fees already paid will be reimbursed.

    Cancellation by the course participant AFTER registration has closed will NOT lead to a refund. An exception may be made in the case of pressing personal circumstances, such as hospital admission. In such situations a request for a refund can be made in writing, stating relevant personal and course details.

    If the UT Language Centre has to cancel the course for which you registered, you will of course be fully reimbursed. See also our Terms and Conditions.

  • I wish to make a complaint. What do I do?

    If you are unhappy about the offer of language courses for students or the rates that apply to the various groups of students, please contact your supervisor.
