There is an exception in the registration process for our incoming students, since the registration to the language courses via BokuOnline one month before they start is not possible for most of our incoming students.


Incoming students can register for language courses by sending an e-mail to sprachkurse(at)

Please include the following information in your email:

  • course title + level
  • first name and last name
  • exchange programme with which you are coming to BOKU

Please also add the course to your learning agreement.

By emailing us the required personal data as listed above, you declare your consent to our use of the data for the sole purpose of registering you for the language course. The data processing is carried out on the basis of Art 6(1a) GDPR. We do not share any data received with third parties.

We will then email you then the details for the payment of the course.

Fees apply to all our language courses except for German for BOKU-specific subjects-class (free for Erasmus-students) and our "Science and technology" one-year language classes.

The deadline for registration by e-mail for all language courses (except German-classes) held during the winter semester 2019/20  is 27 August 2019. We are happy to accept your registration at a later stage if places are available.

Registration by email for German classes taking place in the winter semester 2019/20 is possible until 20 September 2019. If places are available, we accept registrations up to the beginning of the semester, but recommend to register as soon as possible, as places are limited.
Please note the earlier registration deadlines for the German intensive course in September.
