Bildungsurlaub English courses

Here at EC we make it a point to encourage all our students to pursue their goals and maximise their learning potential, helping them be the very best they can be. That’s why we are proud to have German educational leave recognised at many of our centres worldwide, offering a combination of professional language tuition as well as a choice of excursions and activities across some of the most exciting locations across the globe.

English Courses
Most of our Bildungsurlaub accreditations refer to General English 30 (Intensive English), meaning 30 lessons per week (22.5 hours).

Some German states (Baden-Württemberg, Hessen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen and Schleswig-Holstein) require 40 lessons per week; therefore, 10 extra lessons are added onto the normal Intensive course, which are made up of free academic workshops and online assignments.

Approved States
Berlin • Brandenburg • Bremen • Hamburg • Hessen (covered by accreditations from Niedersachsen) • Niedersachsen • Rheinland-Pfalz • Saarland (covered by accreditations from all other German states) • Sachsen-Anhalt • Schleswig-Holstein • Thüringen
