What happens if I am not able to participate in the entrance test or fail the test?

Prospective students who are not able to participate in the test, because, for example, their visa was issued too late, or those who fail the test, cannot attend the German course selected. We will endeavour to find an alternative.

Should there be more interested parties than available places, the available places in the German course will be allocated to those parties who achieved the best results in the test.

 

Can I do the entrance test more than once??

You can do the entrance test as often as you wish.  Every entrance test only checks the level of existing knowledge for the relevant German course.   If you want to participate in another German course, you must do the entrance test again.

 

Should I pay for the German course in advance?

No!  After registering locally for the course, you will receive an account with the payment information during the first week of tuition.
If, however, the embassy requires this for the purpose of issuing the visa, you can transfer the pre-payment to the following bank account:

Empfänger: (Recipient) Kreiskasse Goslar, Klubgartenstr. 11, 38640 Goslar
Bank: Sparkasse Goslar / Harz
IBAN: DE11268500010070001706
BIC: NOLADE21GSL
Verwendungszweck:(Purpose)  The course number, Surname and First name of the applicant. 

When you transfer a payment, an E-mail must be sent to us at the same time (maike.bernhard@vhs-goslar.de), so that we can accept the money.   Otherwise it will be returned to the sender immediately.  Please write the word “DaF-Vorauszahlung” in the subject line of the E-mail.


(Note:  Please bear in mind that it usually takes 3-6 months for a visa to be issued.  Therefore, to transfer a payment 1-2 months before the course starts doesn’t make sense.)

When do the courses start? What do the courses cost?

As a rule the German courses take place from Monday to Friday, between 08h00 and 13h00 in several buildings in Clausthal-Zellerfeld.   Changes in the days, times and places of the classes are possible and the participants who are present will be informed directly thereof.

The prices are for people with admission to a university.
Other people pay 300 € per course
