Yes. The Language Center (Sprachenzentrum) at UBT offers German courses and a variety of other languages. Check out their courses here.

Does my academic background suit the requisites of the M.Sc. Programme?

Where is Bayreuth, and what can I do there in my leisure time?
Hide

Bayreuth is the capital of the Upper Franconia (Oberfranken), a picturesque region located in the Free State of Bavaria, Germany. It is also the home of the classical music composer Richard Wagner and the correspondent world-famous festival. Owing to over 12.000 students at UBT – many of them from foreign countries, Bayreuth hosts a fairly active nightlife and many recreational opportunities for young people. Just in distance are the ‘Fränkische Schweiz’ (Franconian Switzerland) and the Fichtel Mountains, which are great spots for outdoor activities like rock climbing, hiking, skiing (well, at least sometimes), road and mountain biking, or kayaking.
