About the VICTORIA | Academy of Languages

The VICTORIA | Academy of Languages introduces itself

Since 2013, our Berlin language school has stood for goal- and practice-oriented language programs for prospective international students (university preparation), professionals, government agencies and diplomatic missions in Berlin and Brandenburg.

The upgrade as a language institute at the VICTORIA | International University – formerly the University of Business, Technology and Culture (hwtk) – for which we have already been acting as the International Office since 2017, further raises our profile. Our language courses are now ECTS-eligible and can be credited toward subsequent university studies. Our international expertise helps hundreds of young people from all over the world gain university places in Germany every year. VICTORIA University’s specialization in dual study programs based on the split-week model is also reflected in our language courses: All intensive courses are now geared toward the most effective possible intermeshing of theory transfer and practical applicability. We want you to get along just as well on the street, at the bakery, or in a German government office as you do at work or in the lecture hall.

Our individual and corporate customers also benefit from our proximity to academic operations, its research and innovation potential, and its dual networking with Berlin’s business community. In dozens of subject areas and industries, from law to marketing, healthcare, and international management, we have our finger on the pulse and know exactly what matters in terms of technical language.
