Welcome on the pages of the Centre for Languages and Intercultural Studies (ZSIK)

The Centre for Languages and Intercultural Studies (ZSIK) is a central facility at the Kiel University of Applied Sciences.  

The ZSIK secures demand-oriented language training at the Kiel University of Applied Sciences and aims at training socio-cultural and language skills of outgoing and incoming students to prepare and educate them for their courses abroad or in this country. The courses are designed to offer a systematic language training which complies with the system of validation of language ability designed by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (Gemeinsamer Europäischer Referenzrahmen – GER). The single lectures have to be regarded as part or supplement of the respective subject course, and extra-curricular activities and events will enhance and deepen the skills.

The ZSIK closely collaborates with local partners (Institut für Spanische Sprache und Kultur/Kiel (Institute for Spanisch Language and Culture/Kiel), Institut Francais de Kiel) and is the test centre for a variety of official internationally recognized language tests which they conduct either themselves or in collaboration with external partners.
