Information on the ÖIF-Startpaket:

Being proficient in German is the first and most important step to successful integration. Thanks to grants from the Austrian Integration Fund (ÖIF), LOQUI Sprach- und Bildungsinstitut is able to offer free literacy courses and A1 German courses to asylum seekers from Syria and Iran, recognised refugees and persons with subsidiary protection. These people also have the opportunity to take the A1 ÖIF exam at our school. We are very proud to be part of this integration project. 

Please note the following:

Only asylum seekers from Syria and Iran, recognised refugees and persons with subsidiary protection (15 years or older) are allowed to participate in the free German courses mentioned above. Participation is only possible after passing the compulsory placement test. Placement tests take place from Monday to Friday at certain hours.

What do I need to bring to the placement test?

->Asylum notification letter (Asylbescheid)
->Residence registration form (Meldezettel)
