Our wide-ranging program provides you with optimum preparation for the external Feststellungsprüfung. To ensure your success, we focus on language development along with other specialized subjects.
If you already have excellent German or English skills, you can attend the respective courses in the focus area you selected without taking language classes. If you are planning to apply for courses that are taught in English, level B2 in English is required (cf. CEFR – Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) and A2 in German. If you are planning to take courses that are taught in German, level B2 in German and A2 in English are the minimum requirements.
If your language proficiency is below the aforementioned levels, you have the option of completing a preliminary language course first.
