Your study place abroad is already fixed and you would like to refresh your foreign language skills quickly or are on the verge of a longer stay abroad? Then it certainly makes sense to take advantage of one of the many inexpensive state language courses offered by universities and institutes.
Such offers are available worldwide, so that you may be able to start your journey and get to know the country and its people before your studies abroad, gap year, Work'n'Travel or internship abroad.
These language courses are usually particularly well tailored to their target groups, as they are partly led by lecturers and teachers from local universities who are familiar with the requirements of their subjects, but also with the special features of their own language.

If you are drawn to England, Italy, France or Spain for a language course and then for a course of study, you should definitely consider health insurance. The German statutory health insurance companies pay the treatment costs within the EU in the amount that would have been incurred in Germany, but the return transport to Germany is not paid in the event of an accident or a serious illness. This gap is closed by an international health insurance such as the Care College for German students abroad. In England, for example, as a German student you are insured via the NHS state health system, which is not comparable to the German system. Here, too, it is worth taking out a private health insurance policy to be able to receive private medical treatment.
To find the right health insurance for you, simply enter a few details in our tariff finder. You can then take out your insurance directly and quickly online with Care Concept AG. Do you have any questions? Just call us at +49 228 97735-44.
