Heidelberg is a charming university city located in the Neckar valley, north-west of Baden-Württemberg. Principally known for its internationally reputable university, it has attracted numerous painters, poets and scientists over the years who have all contributed to the growth of this city.

It is now one of the most beautiful cities in Germany and attracts numerous German and foreign visitors to its famous castle and beautiful surroundings. The atmosphere in this student city is particularly lively in summer when people are able to make the most of the sun and sit on one of the many terraces in the historic centre and on the river banks.


Our partner school Heidelberg F+U is situated in the vibrant centre of the city, in the heart of the university district, 200 metres from the river and around 1.5km from the castle. The school is well connected by public transport. There are shops, restaurants and public services all nearby the school building.

Our school welcomes students all year round from over 50 different nationalities. It has received the ISO 9001 label for the quality of teaching. All of the teachers are university qualified, offering students stimulating and creative activities enabling them to progress in various different areas of the language.


To optimise the contact time in the target language, lessons are given in groups of 15 students.

We offer the following programmes:

  • Standard Programme
    20 general group lessons per week (45 minutes each).

  • Intensive Programme
    The intensive programme includes 20 group lessons in the morning and 10 supplementary lessons in the afternoons. Students have the choice between conversation lessons or business German.

  • Private Lessons
    Individual lessons are organised in blocks of two or ten hours and are tailored to your needs, be it entry into a German university, business German or exam preparation (DSH or Zertifikat Deutsch für den Beruf).

For students who already have an average or advanced level, we can offer, after a minimum language course of 4 weeks, an unpaid internship in a local company for 3 months. More info here.


The school organizes activities every week. Activities include a visit to the Old Town, castles, the old prison, dances and barbecues, bike rides along the Neckar, the Speyer Technology Museum, and the Schwetzingen Castle.


We offer different types of accommodation depending on your needs. More independent students can choose the residence or apartment for example and those interested in discovering the German culture can opt for the host family option.

  • Host Family

Staying with a host family allows students to benefit from a true immersion experience, practising their German on a daily basis with native speakers. It also gives them an insight into real German culture.

Students stay in single rooms, double rooms may be available for those travelling as a pair. All families are at most 30 minutes from the school, with either half board (breakfast and an evening meal), or simply breakfast.

  • Residence

Student residences are located about 10 - 15 minutes by tram from the school. They are furnished with a bed, desk, chair and wardrobe. The bathrooms and kitchen are usually shared with other students and there is a common living room where students can spend time together.

We offer different categories with higher or lower prices. This can be dependent on: geographical location (more or less central and closer to the school), layout and facilities. In all cases, this residence is reserved for students.

  • Apartment

Apartments have single rooms, a bathroom and toilets, and a small kitchen. There is a washing machine and WiFi access, and they are about 20 minutes by public transport from the school.
