Learn German in English through Waff

One of the biggest challenges when we immigrate to Austria is the language. After finding an apartment and a job, the best thing you can do is invest your time in a German course.

And yes, we are talking about investing your time, not your money.

Austria has one of the best social services in Europe, and proof of this is the scholarship they offer you through the Waff to take a German course.

The scholarship works as follows: if you are registered in Vienna (Anmeldung) and  you are working, you can make an appointment at the Waff ( to apply for the scholarship.

This scholarship pays up to €3,000 for a German course in Vienna if you don’t earn more than 1800€ netto.

Why should I choose Ikarus?

Because you are reliable, effective and provide a different Ökosystem

At Ikarus you have:

International Community

Jose will be the teacher in charge of your German course.

  1. Jose completed his Germanistik (German Philology) studies in Madrid and worked as a Spanish teacher in a German Highschool for 2 years. He also worked 1 year in the student parliament as president of the department of social issues at the Universität Bonn. He has completed more than 100 German courses for foreigners in Vienna, from intensive (A1-C1), normal (4-week courses), private, business and certificate preparation courses.
  2. Ikarus has a virtual campus to boost your learning. This eCampus allows you to practice at home what you have learned in class in an interactive way.
  3. We are very committed to the international community. Jose, originally from Spain and with Mexican roots, also emigrated to Germany and knows very well what it means to be abroad without family, friends and without knowing the language.
  4. Ikarus has a WhatsApp group for all Ikarus students where monthly coffees, cocktail afternoons or bar nights are organized to get to know each other.

The Ikarus ecosystem allows the Ikarus student to learn German, integrate better and meet new people from a new perspective never seen in an academy in Vienna.

Jose will be the teacher in charge of your German course.

After the call, you will have an in-person appointment at Ikarus to clarify the details of the course.

On the first day of class you must bring books and a notebook.

Jose will explain how to use the eCampus and how we will focus the course based on your needs.

  • Course for couples
  • Course for friends/roommates/relatives

Waff gives you a scholarship of up to €3,000, of which you must pay 10% of the total amount in most cases.
