Our service offer for you

Everything You Need in Addition

Preparation for a language stay abroad does not end with booking the course. Often many other aspects can seem complicated at first glance. We want to help you clarify these different aspects and make your language stay with us as comfortable as possible!

We would love to help you with the following:


Bank account

We will help you open a bank account in Heidelberg, advise you on the most suitable bank for you, and tell you which documents you need.


Conditional admission

Your visa requirements often state that you must present conditional admission from a German university; We help you to get this approval. Contact us here to give you more information!


Leisure activities

We offer leisure activities throughout Heidelberg predominantly in the summer, such as trips to Heidelberg Castle or the nearby hill Königstuhl. These trips are an excellent way for you to get to know the other students personally and the surrounding area better outside of class. We also have various traditions in Alpha Aktiv during different seasons. In summer, we visit Colmar's city in France, during the winter we visit Strasbourg in France.

If you delay your trip for any reason, you can also join the course online in advance, or we will postpone your starting date.

The teachers make copies of in-class material; however, you need to buy the books for the class. Ask us which books you need, and we will provide you with all the information you prepare so that you can benefit from our classes right from the start.
