In 2013, over 180,000 for­eign stu­dents began their stud­ies at a Ger­man in­sti­tu­tion of high­er learn­ing. The num­ber of in­ter­na­tion­al stu­dents in Ger­many in the last five years has ris­en al­most 25 per­cent. And if you look ten years back you will see that today the num­ber of for­eign stu­dents has doubled. Are you in­ter­ested in study­ing in Ger­many too?

did deutsch-institut Our University Place­ment Pro­gram of­fers in­ter­na­tion­al stu­dents the op­por­tun­ity to be­come thor­oughly in­formed about the col­lege/uni­versity sys­tem here in Ger­many. In ad­di­tion to ad­vice on choos­ing a suit­able course of study and de­sir­able in­sti­tu­tion, we re­view an ap­plic­ant’s aca­dem­ic re­sume with an eye to­wards mak­ing sure the ad­mis­sion re­quire­ments for that course of study and in­sti­tu­tion are met.

Should the aca­dem­ic re­quire­ments of an in­sti­tu­tion be ful­filled, the ap­plic­ant will re­ceive an ac­cept­ance to study. The re­quis­ite Ger­man lan­guage skills and know­ledge can be sub­stan­ti­ated with the Ger­man as a For­eign Lan­guage Test (TestDaF). Our in­sti­tutes in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Mu­nich are all li­censed TestDaF test­ing cen­ters and of­fer spe­cial TestDaF Pre­par­a­tion Courses six times per year.

If dir­ect ad­mis­sion to col­lege/uni­versity is not pos­sible, our ad­visors will con­cen­trate on seek­ing ad­mis­sion to a pre­par­at­ory col­lege. Ad­mis­sion to a pre­par­at­ory col­lege re­quires in­ter­me­di­ate Ger­man lan­guage skills and know­ledge at the B1 level (min­im­um). These skills can be ac­quired in In­tens­ive and Premi­um Courses and sub­stan­ti­ated by suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the B1 dip­loma ex­am­in­a­tion.

TestDaF schedule
for the year 2015

In or­der for for­eign stu­dents to study at a Ger­man col­lege or uni­versity, they must prove suf­fi­cient Ger­man lan­guage skills. Suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the TestDaF is ac­cept­able as proof. Lan­guage courses, TestDaF Pre­par­a­tion Courses and the test it­self can all be com­pleted dir­ectly at our in­sti­tutes! The 4-week, 80-les­son pre­par­a­tion course teaches pre­par­a­tion strategies, im­proves lan­guage com­pet­ence and trains stu­dents through tar­geted prac­tice ex­ams.

FAM Trip through
Southern Germany

Above all, the trip was ar­du­ous. Over 1,500 kilo­met­ers in just three days! Even so, our interna­tion­al part­ners were thrilled with the tour through south­ern Ger­many, in which we in­tro­duced them to our vari­ous course loc­a­tions. From Mu­nich (lan­guage in­sti­tute and junior res­id­ence) we went on to Hintersee in the alps and then fur­ther to our year-round school for juniors in Augs­burg. There was one more stop in Höchst im Odenwald be­fore we ar­rived at our final destina­tion: Frank­furt am Main. See all the beau­ti­ful trip pho­tos here.
Students' Corner
Why Berlin?

Bethany from the USA: "I study in­ter­na­tion­al mar­ket­ing and the Ger­man lan­guage opens many doors for me in this field. Why did I come to did deutsch-in­sti­tut? My sis­ter had already learned Ger­man here and warmly re­com­men­ded the school to me. I de­cided on Ber­lin be­cause it is the cap­it­al city of Germany and offers so many his­tor­ic­al sights and at­trac­tions to visit and discover.
I am tak­ing a small bear fig­ur­ine back home as a souven­ir. The bear ap­pears on the coat of arms as a sym­bol for the city of Berlin."
