University Language Center (ZFA)

Welcome to RUB's Language Center, the ZFA.
ZFA offers a wide variety of language courses for RUB students and staff members. We teach modern foreign languages as well as German as a Foreign Language.

Please note that the University Language Center is moving to the 2nd floor of RUB‘s “Studierendenhaus”. We hope for your understanding that this means high personnel cost and logistics. We apologize for upcoming course, room and mail delays. Thank you very much for your understanding!
