1. Before start of German course in Vienna:

1.1. When do I have to register for my German courses in Vienna?

The earlier the better. There are never more than 11 pupils in our German courses in Vienna, which means that we can only accept a limited number of participants in our courses.

1.2. Up to what date at the latest should I register for my German courses in Vienna?

If you want to do German courses at a particular time of day, you should apply at least 3-4 weeks before the German courses start. Registrations at short notice do not in themselves constitute a problem, as long as there are still places available. But don’t be disappointed if there are no places left for your desired German course in Vienna or a particular time of day, as many German courses at DeutschAkademie Vienna are booked out in advance.

A rule of thumb is: If you want to reserve a German course without accommodation in Vienna, you should do so at least 2 to 3 weeks before the German courses start.

1.3. How can I register for German courses at DeutschAkademie Vienna?

If you live in Vienna:
If you live in Vienna, call in at our office. Here you can book or reserve German courses, and we have time to pick out the right German courses for you.
If you are not in Vienna or from other countries:
If you are not in Vienna or if you are in another country, you can also reserve your German courses by email or fax. As soon as you have transferred the fees for your German courses, simply send us a copy of the payment receipt (transfer form), and we will keep a place in the German course in Vienna open for you. As soon as the money comes into our account, we will make a firm booking for you.

1.4. How does it work with reservations from other countries?

If you are reserving your German courses at DeutschAkademie Vienna from outside Austria, it is best to transfer the money for the German courses and/or accommodation in Vienna 4 weeks in advance, to make sure of having a place on the German courses at DeutschAkademie Vienna.

1.5. Will the DeutschAkademie Vienna help me with my visa application?

You get a visa at the responsible Austrian Embassy in your home country. We are glad to send an enrolment confirmation of your German courses in Vienna direct to the Embassy. But we can only do that if the German courses in Vienna are already paid for. You must bear any possible costs for registered postage.

1.6. Where is the German language school located in Vienna? Where will my German courses take place?

We have two locations in Vienna. One of our language schools is located in the center of Vienna, directly opposite the Vienna State Opera. Address: Opernring 1/E, A-1010 Vienna, corner of Kärntnerstraße.
We are very easy to get to by public transport:
By underground: route U1, U2 or U4, station Karlsplatz/Oper, by tram routes 1, 2, 71, D, the Badner Bahn or by bus number 59A (station Kärntner Ring/Oper in each case).

If you are in another country, you are also welcome to transfer the money to us for your German courses.

1.8. How am I allocated to a German course level?

We have various tests you can do. Generally one or two written tests will suffice. Sometimes an oral test is also necessary to allocate you to a German course.

 1.9. How can I do a German test?

If you live in Vienna:
Just call in at our office during office hours. It is always better if we can also speak to you and listen to you in person. That way, we can give you the best possible advice for your German courses.
If you don’t live in Vienna:
We are also happy to send you a test by email or fax.

As general rule: We can’t reserve any German courses in Vienna for you until you have done a test-unless you are a complete beginner.

1.10. Can I also take out cancellation insurance for my German courses in Vienna?

Yes. You can change or cancel the course free of charge up to 14 days before the course starts. There is the option to take out a cancellation insurance when you pay the course fee. This applies only to German courses without accommodation:

  • Insurance for non-commencement of the course:
    The cancellation insurance costs 3 % of the total German course fee. It covers the costs of your course in Vienna if you or a family member becomes ill within two weeks before the start of the course and you are unable to attend the German course for this reason. However, the insurance can only cover the costs if you bring a medical certificate. The certificate can be written in German or English. 

Caution: The cancellation insurance only guarantees a refund of the course fee before the beginning of the course.

  • Insurance for course cancellation:
    The cancellation insurance costs 10 % of the total course fee. It covers the costs of your course proportionally in case you or a family member becomes ill or due to professional commitments. The cancellation insurance can only cover the costs if you bring a medical certificate or proof from your employer. These can be written in German or English.
