Bildungsurlaub Recognition

Language students from Germany have the right to 5 paid days of educational leave per year - a total of 10 paid days within 2 calendar years. Bildungsurlaub is offered by most (but not all) federal states. The main criteria with regard to Bildungsurlaub is the federal state in which the applicant works; not the state in which they live.

Language courses must have a minimum number of lessons per week in order to qualify for Bildungsurlaub recognition. LSI intensive and exam courses are examples of these.

LSI offers Bildungsurlaub recognised courses in the following languages and destinations:

Bildungsurlaub English: England, USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Malta

Bildungsurlaub Französisch: France

The Bildungsurlaub recognition process normally takes 8 – 12 weeks to complete.
