I would like to apply for a language visa? How does it work?

If you want to apply for a new language visa or extend your visa in the form of a language visa, you can book the appropriate language courses with us. Important here is the number of hours. Usually you need 72 hours per week (96 teaching units) to get the language visa.

Normally you have to book a minimum number of German courses. Please check in advance with the consulate in your country how many courses you need to book.

Then you can register at the DeutschAkademie Vienna. When registering, you can choose the visa course. In case of previous knowledge we also need the placement test. After that we can make a reservation for you. As soon as you have paid for the German courses, we will issue a booking confirmation. You will need to present this to the embassy to apply for or extend your visa.

Which in-house German courses are available at the DeutschAkademie Vienna?

We again offer numerous in-house German courses in Vienna, such as our intensive course or semi-intensive evening course.

You can find an overview of all our German courses in Vienna here.

Which German courses start on the next start date?

We offer all course models every month. This means you can register for any German course on our website for the next start date. Simply register using our registration form. If you have already taken courses with us, you can also simply send us an e-mail and we will inform you about the next steps.

Here you can also find the overview of our start dates.

I have no previous knowledge, what do I have to do to take a German course with you?

If you have no previous knowledge, that’s no problem. Our beginners course A1.1. is then just right for you. The only requirement for the course is the Latin alphabet, which you must know in order to participate in the course. The rest will be taught by our teachers. You can register for the German course here.

Do I need a password for the tutoring?

No, you do not need a password. Just click on the link and join the Zoom meeting.

How can I sign up for tutoring?

Registration is not required. You will receive an email on the 2nd day of the course with links to the tutoring service. You can use these links to log in at any time – without pre-registration.

What is the free online tutoring?

In the first days of your German course you will receive a link for a Zoom meeting, which is the meeting for the free tutoring.

Our native speaking and qualified online German teachers are looking forward to meeting you!

Depending on the number of participants, you can either do exercises with other participants or even have a mini one-on-one lesson. From practicing grammatical aspects to developing your vocabulary, everything is possible with this completely free (for current participants, otherwise € 85) offer!

What do I do if I have not received the Zoom link?

Please check your spam folder first. If you did not receive a Zoom link, please contact us via the chat function on our website. We will assist you as soon as possible.

When will I get the zoom link?

You will receive the Zoom link directly from your teacher, at least 10 minutes before the course starts.

In which room will my German course take place?

Please refer to the email we send you on Friday or Saturday before the course starts. The room and also the book will be in this email.
