German Foundation Courses

Foundation courses, called "Studienkolleg" are offered at universities and universities of applied sciences. Not all higher education institutions offer these courses. The courses cover a variety of key topics to prepare students for specific subject areas.
If you take the "Feststellungsprüfung" (university qualification exam) at a university of applied sciences, you will only be able to study at a university of applied sciences afterwards. If you take the exam at a university, you can study at both. The international office at your higher education institution will help you find the right "Studienkolleg"-course and prepare you for it properly. There are different types of "Studienkolleg"- courses.
