Learn German in Malaysia

Studying in Germany usually requires you to provide proof that you have a good command of the German language (exception: international programmes taught in English).

If your course is in English, still we would like to encourage you to learn German.

When you learn German you acquire a range of skills which can improve the quality of both your work and private life. Here are the reasons of why you should learn German.

In Malaysia, the Goethe-Institute in Kuala Lumpur, Mercator Office UKM Bangi and The Malaysian-German Society in Penang offer German language courses.

Please directly enquire about the exact dates and fees of the courses at the respective office:

Language Proficiency Tests

Study programmes in the German language require an adequate knowledge of the German language. You can demonstrate your knowledge by taking the German language proficiency test for university entry for foreign students, known for short as DSH (Deutsche Sprachpüfung für den Hochschulzugang).

The TestDaF - Test of German as a Foreign Language is a language test suitable for learners of German at an intermediate to high level of language proficiency.
