The diversity of linguistic and cultural backgrounds in schools and society requires teachers who are particularly qualified in the field of German as a Second Language (DaZ). For this reason, RWTH Aachen University offers two free, in-service German as a second language (DaZ) additional qualifications. Upon successful completion of the continuing education program, participants receive a university certificate.

The university certificate "DaZ Zusatzqualifikation - Vollversion" is primarily aimed at teachers in adult education and students.

The university certificate "DaZ Zusatzqualifikation - Kompaktversion" is primarily aimed at teachers in the school context.


Due to the current situation, our DaZ seminars will initially take place in e-learning format. The e-learning seminars are equivalent to the face-to-face seminars and also enable you to obtain the respective university certificate. In e-learning, participants can divide their learning time more freely; we offer some of our courses as face-to-face online seminars.

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer information evenings for those interested in further education. Please contact us by e-mail if you have any questions. We will be happy to make an appointment with you for a telephone conversation.


The continuing education program is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia and is free of charge.
