Integration Courses

LOQUI is certified by the Austrian Integration Fund (ÖIF) and the City of Vienna. This means that we are allowed to offer integration courses including value and orientation courses. If you have these vouchers, we can offer courses at a low price. The ÖIF voucher can be redeemed for A1 and A2 courses. The Vienna Language Vouchers (Wiener Sprachgutscheine) can be redeemed for A1, A2 and B1 courses.  

Depending on your language skills, it will take you one to four months to speak German at the A2 level (max. 300 hours of instruction). If you pass the ÖIF A2 exam within 18 months after your voucher was issued, ÖIF can reimburse you for a maximum of 750 euros. 

In addition to the blue ÖIF voucher, you can redeem a Vienna Language Voucher from the MA 35 (100 euros, 50 euros for EU citizens) per intensive course.
