German Teacher Refresher Course, Regensburg

Regensburg, the largest medieval city in Germany, has just 150,000 inhabitants of which over 30,000 are university students. A large number of street festivals and other cultural events are held every year and it is a lively and very beautiful small city located in the heart of Bavaria, just one hour north of Munich airport. Its medieval centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and our school is located in the heart of this historic centre.

Regensburg is safe and welcoming and a great location to practise your German. Due to its small size you can walk everywhere  and the air is clean and fresh.  A good range of museums, friendly bars and beer gardens and beautiful countryside very close by make this a picturesque and friendly place to study.

What is the process for Erasmus funded courses?

  1. Choose which course, start date and type of accommodation you would like to book and contact us
  2. We temporarily reserve a place for you on that course whilst you apply for funding through the Erasmus + programme.
  3. When you find out the results of your funding application, you pay a deposit of £150 to secure your place on the course. You do not have to pay anything until you have found out if you were successful or not.
  4. The full balance is then due 8 weeks prior to departure
  5. The application for funding is managed through Erasmus +, and as your language course provider, we provide you with the supporting documents (confirmation letter and invoice) for your application
