Bildungsurlaub (also known as Bildungsfreistellung or Bildungszeit in some German states or educational leave in english) is a great way to further your education while continuing to be paid as normal by your employer in Germany. 

We offer certified courses for Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg, Hessen, Niedersachsen, Saarland und Rheinland-Pfalz that meet your exact Bildungsurlaub requirements. If you are interested in another state, please contact us anyway and we will try to help you. 

Visit Gran Canaria and its paradisiacal capital Las Palmas, right on the Atlantic Ocean. Improve your Spanish language skills while having the option to relax or explore the area.

Language Campus offers accredited language courses, giving you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and skills, as well as develop and educate yourself personally and professionally. Language skills in particular are becoming more and more relevant in everyday life and work. Therefore, a language course is perfect for your educational leave. 

Since each federal state has its own rules and regulations regarding application and implementation, we are happy to support and help you.
