Hei! Hvordan har du det?

Courses offered

1) Which language courses can I attend and when?Hide

Normally,the courses are offered as follows. You can find the courses on Cmlife by entering the course number in the search box:

  • SoSe: A1 (Grundkurs 1 - 4 SWS): SNO01

​​Please note that the courses can only take place if the minimum number of participants is reached.

2) What influence does my previous knowledge have on the choice of my courses?Hide

If you have had previous instruction in a language or knowledge of a language that is very similar, you may be able to start a course at a higher level. A placement test is mandatory in this case. You will find further information about this under "Placement".

3) Can I participate in the courses as a member of staff or guest student?Hide

Generally, yes. You will find more information here.

Placement Test 'Einstufung' (Please read carefully!)

​4) Do I need a placement test?Hide

No placement tests are currently offered for Norwegian. However, if you would like to take a higher level course directly, please contact the lecturer directly (see e-mail address below).​

5) How do I register for the placement tests?Hide

No placement tests are currently offered for Norwegian. However, if you would like to take a higher level course directly, please contact the lecturer directly (see e-mail address below).

6) When do I register for the placement tests and when do they take place?Hide

No placement tests are currently offered for Norwegian. However, if you would like to take a higher level course directly, please contact the lecturer directly (see e-mail address below).

7) Where can I have previously acquired language certificates recognised?Hide

There are currently no recognised certificates for Norwegian. However, if you have a certificate, you can submit it to the secretariat for examination (see e-mail address below).

Course registration (compulsory)

8) Do I have to register for a language course? And if so, where?Hide
9) I don't have an enrolment number yet, can I still register for a language course or a placement test?Hide

If you do not yet have a matriculation number, this means that your enrolment is probably not yet complete. Please contact the Student Administration Office (Studierendenkanzlei) about this. Only then can you register for our language courses.

10) Will I definitely get a place on the course?Hide

No. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. If the course is fully booked and you only receive a place on the waiting list (WL), you will move up the line if/when a student with a firm place (FP) deregisters. Students who are only on the waiting list may NOT attend the course.

11) I can't find my desired course on CMlife, what's wrong?Hide

If you cannot find a course on CMlife, it usually means that this course is not required for your degree program.

If you can see a course on CMlife but cannot register, it may mean that do not have the required language level (taken the placement test) or attended the previous course in the program.

12) Do I have to deregister if I cannot attend a course I have registered for?Hide

Deregistration is only possible during the registration period (i.e. until the end of the second week of the semester). Students can only move up from the waiting list during this period. Once registration closes, it is not possible to deregister from a course. If you drop out of a course, "X-5,0" will be entered as your result in CMlife.

13) Can I attend a language course without taking the final exam?Hide

Technically, you can take a course without taking the exam. However, by doing so, you may be depriving another student of a place in the course and thus the opportunity to earn credits for the successful completion of their degree. If you do not take exam, you will not be able to take the follow-up course. In addition, you will receive no credit and ''X-5,0'' will be entered as your result in CMlife.

Course attendance and course completion (examination)

14) Is there an attendance requirement?Hide

Yes, attendance is compulsory in all language courses. You will find further information here.

15) Can I also attend the language course online?Hide

The Norwegian G1 and G3 courses will be offered exclusively online in summer term 24. If you need a quiet place to participate from campus, please contact the secretariat (e-mail address below).

16) What happens if I drop out of the course?Hide

If you do not complete a course, ''X-5,0" will be entered as your course result in CMlife. You will not receive credits or a language certificate for courses you do not complete.

17) Do I have to register for the language course exam?Hide

No. When you register for the course you are automatically registered for the exam final exam.

18) How many ECTS or credit points do I get for a language course?Hide

You will receive 2 ECTS for courses with one session per week and 4 ECTS for courses with two sessions per week. This may vary slightly from the number of credit points (LP) awarded for the course in your degree program. The  examinations office (Prüfungsamt) will be able to help you with any questions about this. The Language Centre cannot provide this information.​

19) Can I get an official certificate at the end of a language course?Hide

Yes, on request at the Secretary's Office (Sekretariat): GW I, 0.04; Monday - Thursday, 9:00-11:00

20) What certificates can I obtain in this language in addition to confirmation that I have successfully completed the course? Hide

Apart from the final examination, you cannot obtain any other certificate at the UBT.​

21) I did not pass the course. Can I repeat the exam or do I have to repeat the course?Hide
  • Who can take a resit exam? If the listening, reading (grammar), writing and speaking skills are graded equally (20-25% each) in a final exam, all skills must be passed. If only one skill is not passed, this skill can be repeated. However, if more than one skill is failed, the exam must be retaken in its entirety.
  • When does the repeat exam take place? At the end of the semester in which the relevant course is offered again.
  • Do I have to attend the course again? No, it is not necessary to attend the course again. You can take the repeat exam straight away.
  • How or with whom do I register? Complete this document and submit it directly to the team coordinator (see e-mail below). Your application will then be processed as quickly as possible.
​22) I was ill on the day of the final exam. Can I take the exam later?Hide

If you are ill on the day of the exam you can apply to take a make-up exam (Nachholklausur). This will usually take place as soon as you are well again (medical certificate). Please fill out this form and upload it together with your medical certificate here.  

​23) I have an exam in my degree subject at the same time as the final exam in my language course. What should I do?Hide

If you have an exam in one of your degree subjects at exactly the same time as the final exam in your language course please inform your instructor about this immediately, i.e. as soon as you are aware of the clash. Fill out this form and upload it together with full and documented details of the overlap here.
