University Preparation Course (24 lessons per week)

In our university preparation course, we prepare participants for the university entrance language examinations TestDaF and DSH. The course comprises a basic module (beginners) and an advanced module (non-beginners). The basic module lasts 24 weeks and works on levels A1, A2 and B1. The advanced module lasts 12 weeks and works on levels B2 and C1.

The language teaching is geared right from the start to meeting the university entrance examination requirements and to providing you with the language skills you will need during your university course. Working in small groups with a maximum of 12 participants, you not only familiarise yourself with grammar and everyday communication but also, from a very early stage, learn how to work with written texts, to produce written work on specific topics, to understand lengthy and complex listening texts and take notes from them, etc.

The basic and advanced modules each have 24 lessons per week; the total course lasts 36 weeks and therefore comprises altogether 864 tuition periods. You also have the possibility of taking part in free learning support and homework supervision in the afternoons.
