Welcome to the Language Centre of the PLUS

Language courses at the Language Centre

The Language Centre provides a wide range of language learning opportunities for students and staff of the University of Salzburg and the Mozarteum University as well as for everyone interested in languages. Every year, more than 1,500 course participants take part in language courses offered by the Language Centre. Courses are offered in a total of eleven languages. In addition to general courses, the Language Centre also offers various specialized courses – including courses in the field of academic language in German and English.
The VPLUS (University preparation course) is aimed at students who do not have the German language skills required for university studies. In addition to teaching general language skills, the VPLUS focuses on teaching German scientific language as well as study-specific skills.
The network of research and practice is ensured by research and development projects in the field of second language and foreign language methodology and by cooperation with numerous national and international institutions and associations.
