Korean is spoken by about 80 million people worldwide. The unique Korean writing system, Hangul, consists of 24 letters. Hangul was developed on the order of King Sejong in 1443, and it is easily learned because of its logical and clear syllable structure. In 1997 Hangul was recognized by UNESCO as a "Memory of the World."
We offer Korean courses from level A1.1 to B1.2 following the CEFR.
Not every course may be offered every semester.
Intensive courses (course levels may vary) take place during the semester break in spring and fall.
The intensive courses take place over a shorter period of time, but have more training units per week than the courses during the semester. The number of ECTS and the workload is therefore the same as for the semester-long courses.
Current dates and registration deadlines can be found on our homepage.
