Language Courses
The University of Salzburg generally expects all incoming students to have sufficient proficiency in German. This is not a required qualification; however, all potential students should be aware that the primary language used for coursework at the University is German. If you are not yet at this level or simply would like to brush up on your German, the University offers German language courses through the Department of German and the University Language Center which are taught according to varying levels of proficiency and run the length of each semester. The courses cost between €45 and €120.

German Language Intensive Courses before Semester starts
The University of Salzburg offers at the beginning of each semester intensive language preparation courses in German at two levels: A1 and B1. For more information on the courses, application and registration, please see top of page!

Students from countries that have an insurance agreement with Austria should bring along the "A3 form", which is available at the national health insurance institutions of their home countries. All other students are recommended either to purchase health insurance in their home country or to take out a health insurance policy for students (Studierendenselbstversicherung) with the Salzburger Gebietskrankenkasse (5020 Salzburg, Engelbert-Weiß-Weg 10, Tel.: +43 (0)662 8889-0, sgkk@sgkk.at, www.sgkk.at) upon arrival.

Liability and Accident Insurance
Liability and accident insurance is included in the Austrian Student Union Membership Fee of € 20.20, which every student is obliged to pay. This insurance coverage is valid for all activities at the University. If you would like further insurance you will have to research other means of coverage yourself.
