Language Course 1 - Intensive Online Course

Deutsch-Uni Online (DUO) provides online German courses at levels A1-C1.

Your online German course offers you full flexibility. You can start learning German before leaving your home country and getting to Munich. You have to work on your German approximately 20 hours/week to participate successfully.

You decide where and when you want to study German.

The aim of the course is to prepare you for your studies at LMU. Intensive tutoring means that your personal tutor will welcome you in your online course and send you your personal curriculum. The curriculum tells you the number of chat sessions, forum posts, auto-corrected exercises, and assignments you have to complete in order to obtain ECTS credit points. On the DUO platform, you will meet your tutor and international students from LMU in chats, forum discussions, and voice chats. Our tools offer you a lot of opportunities to practice your speaking and writing skills.

You can book  "Excursion Program" in and around Munich to complement your German class.
