About this course

Entry Requirements


One of the most influential states in the European Union, Germany is home to a definitive brand of culture, industry, art, literature, and innovation. The German language is both a leading world language and of prime importance in the EU, especially as that Union expands eastwards.

German at Victoria is a major designed with accessibility in mind. You can enter German at university level no matter what your current level. Within the supportive environment of the German Programme, you will soon be speaking, reading, and writing German. Students are automatically members of the German Club, there is a German library for student use and the German choir meets weekly during term time. You can major in German for a Bachelor of Arts(BA), or take German as part of a major in Modern Language Studies or European Studies.

People able to speak both English and German are valued in New Zealand and overseas. You will be in demand for jobs in areas like tourism, marketing, and international business, and qualified also for a wide range of other careers.
