Language

Most course modules are held in English. An appropriate command of the English language, both written and verbal, is expected and must be certified upon inscription (see requirements). In the regular first semester (winter semester) German courses can be chosen, but in preparation of the exchange semester one course of the electives “International Competences” must be attended. This ensures a smooth transition to a completely English course of study. For the exchange semester in Pordenone knowledge of the Italian language might be advantageous. The TH OWL offers a course “Italian for beginners”, which can also be attended by students of the Bachelor`s program.

English-speaking tutors work in both places of study. Here also transition is smooth, and meets the requirements of an international career. With fewer options, a completely English study program can be selected. Students from other European and third countries are welcome. The international Master`s program is closely linked to the other Master`s courses of the department Production and Economics, so that students at any time can easily change to a German Master`s course (Wood Technology M. Sc., Production and Management M. Sc.).
