High School Program | Reading Tips | Discover Augsburg | 4X Travel Special | Students’ Corner
Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

Our High School Program offers youth between the ages of 14 and 17 a very special op­por­tun­i­ty, be­cause what could be more ex­cit­ing for this age group than get­ting to know a for­eign land and ex­per­i­enc­ing a new cul­ture? Our in­ter­na­tio­nal guest stu­dents will be en­roll­ed in a Ger­man prep school (Gym­na­sium) with Ger­man stu­dents of similar age and attend regular classes for two, three, six or eleven months.

High School Program Regardless of age and German language ability, our in­ter­na­tio­nal guest stu­dents will be placed into the 9th through 11th gra­des at the Gym­na­si­um. In case in­ter­na­tio­nal stu­dents would like to com­plete the Abi­tur (graduation exam) in Ger­many at the end of their stay, which would qualify them for uni­ver­sity study, they would need to attend a pri­vate Gym­na­sium. Gra­duation with Abi­tur is not possible from a public Gymnasium.

In order to be able to attend a German school, applicants for this pro­gram must be able to pro­vide proof of ade­quate schol­as­tic per­for­mance as well as a B2 German language level. For in­ter­na­tio­nal stu­dents who would like to im­prove their Ge­rman skills before atten­ding the Gym­na­si­um, we re­com­mend a multi-week In­ten­sive Course at our year-round school for juniors in Augsburg.

Not only during instructional time, but also outside normal school hours, there is much for our guest stu­dents to ex­per­i­ence. During the time of their stay, stu­dents are treat­ed as full-fledged mem­bers of their Ger­man host fam­i­lies and will learn from them much about the Ger­man way of life. In add­i­tion, a local or­gan­izer is avail­able to serve as hel­per and ad­visor during the entire stay.

Year-round school
in Augsburg

Over the years, our school in Augs­burg has be­come ever more pop­u­lar among young par­tic­i­pants, so that effec­tive imme­diate­ly, we will not only be teach­ing Ger­man here in the sum­mer, but will be of­fer­ing year-round class­es. The in­struc­tio­nal fo­cus of these cour­ses will change with the sea­son. Win­ter and sum­mer cour­ses will teach up to a max­i­mum of 15 par­tic­i­pants per class, but in the Sea­son Course it will be dif­fer­ent. Here, the maxi­mum group size is lim­i­ted to 5 par­tic­i­pants – a high­ly in­ten­sive, fast-paced course is there­by guar­an­teed. And with res­pect to free time ac­tiv­i­ties, Augs­burg has a lot to offer at any time of year.

Students’ Corner
Why Frankfurt?

Boriana from Bulgaria: “I chose Frank­furt, be­cause I find this city es­peci­ally pro­gress­ive. I not only like the mo­dern sky­scra­pers and ex­cel­lent in­fra­struc­tu­re, but also the fact that there are many peop­le here from all ar­ound the world. In Frank­furt you ab­so­lute­ly must go up in the Main Tower (sky­scraper), take a boat tour of the Main (river) and take a long walk through the Zeil (cen­tral shop­ping street). I learned a lot about the lan­gu­age, the people and the cul­ture of Ger­ma­ny. Be­fore I came here, I thought I knew a lot about Ger­many. Here I learned even more and want to ex­per­i­ence even more about it!” Read more
