The UNS Method

UNS German courses use materials and methods that prepare you for studying, training or employment in Germany.

Intensive Course

The focus of our intensive courses is on preparing for a course of study or an internship. This means that the skills trained and the content are based on the special requirements of study and vocational training and the corresponding examinations (Telc, TestDaF, DSH, preparatory college). The courses mainly use material developed by UNS that is tailored to the needs of our course participants.

Exam Preparation

UNS offers numerous preparatory courses for exams that are a prerequisite for studying in Germany (Telc, TestDaF, DSH, preparatory college entrance exam). These courses only work with self-developed materials, which offer an ideal opportunity for preparation. In addition to practical solution strategies, there is intensive training with authentic examination materials.

Evening Courses

Due to their scope (3×3 lessons/week), these courses are an ideal opportunity for working learners to improve their communication skills in particular. Just be able to cope better with everyday life in Germany? Make the start of your professional life successful? Improve your career opportunities in Germany? If you are pursuing one of these goals, such an evening course can be the right thing for you.
