GLS German University Pathways


Study Pathways into German universities

Would you like to study for a bachelor’s degree at a German university? The StudyGroup EU German partner’s university pathway program will guide you through every step and will outline a PERSONAL ROADMAP to university for you.

Study subjects possible:

Biotechnology; Business Administration; Business Information Systems; E-Commerce; Engineering (Automation Engineering; Automative Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Environmental Engineering; Materials Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; Medical Engineering; Physics Engineering; Precision Engineering); Information Technology; Laser - and Optotechnologies; Mechatronics; Optoelectronics; Optometry; Social Work

How does it work:

The pathway consists of a German language course + placement at a German university for a price starting at € 3,040 (depending on the length of the German language course). The price will include a conditional acceptance letter of a German university, granting access to a Bachelor degree program (please note: Bachelor only).

It also includes the exam fee. Which exam you need - TestDaF or Goethe B2 - depends on your academic background: TestDaf is applicable if your academic background allows direct access to university. If that is not the case, you will have to do Goethe B2 and then STUDIENKOLLEG, a one-year-foundation program (see other collumn).

Preparation course for the
Studienkolleg entrance

Duration of the preparation course: 4 weeks; Content: German & Maths, 20 lessons à 45 minutes per week. Small groups with max. 12 students. The level you need to enroll in is B2

Students, who cannot apply directly to study at German Institutes of Higher Education because they don’t have an accepted school leaving certificate, have to take an exam (Feststellungsprüfung) before they study (equivalent to the German „ Abitur”). In order to pass this entrance exam successfully, universities offer potential applicants 12-month preparation courses (Studienkollegs) . The course ends with the exam and the permission to study. Entry to the Studienkollegs is also restricted. As there are more applicants than free places, foreign applicants have to take an entrance exam for the Studienkolleg. 

The 4-week Preparation course prepares you completely for the demands of this exam (whichever Studienkolleg you have applied for). It practises the areas focused on in the exam: German and mathematics.
