The aim of the University of Stuttgart is that German and international students, scientists and employees in infrastructure / administration can express themselves adequately in German as a foreign language, if from abroad, as well as in English. The requirements in language proficiency differ in the respective fields of activity, subjects and communication goals. In the selection, technical criteria play just as big a role as the cultural and educational motives.

A different language is a different vision of life.
