Preparation Courses for DSH and TestDaF
In order to study at a German university you have to proof a sufficient knowledge of German language. The required language proof can be either documented by taking and successfully passing the DSH or the âTest Deutsch als Fremdspracheâ, the TestDaF examination. Both the exams are likewise recognized by all German universities as the sufficient proof of language proficiency. The main difference is that the universities itself organize the DSH exams that can be taken only once and are usually given only twice a year. The TestDaF exam, on the other hand, can be repeated as often as necessary and it is offered up to 6 times directly at one of the did deutsch-institut in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich
Preparation Courses for the Studienkolleg
Besides sufficient knowledge of German language foreign students have to present a high school diploma as equivalent to the German Abitur in order to enroll for university studies in Germany. Applicants who received a secondary school diploma within a member state of the European Union can usually register for university studies right away. This is also valid for students who already completed several semesters of university studies in their home countries. If the secondary school diploma will not be recognized, applicants have to pass an assessment test at the Studienkolleg before being admitted to university studies in Germany. This special course is preparing best and most comprehensively for the Studienkolleg entrance examination.
