Program Period and Acknowledgment
Depending on different holiday regulations of
the German federal states, a school year starts in
August respectively September. In order to provide
us with enough time to prepare your school attendance
the deadline for your enrollment is the 15th
of May. If you would like to apply for only one term
of the school year, the deadline is the 15th of May
for the first term or the 15th of November, respectively,
if you wish to attend the school starting in January.
Please note that we can only process complete application
documents. These include an assessment test providing
us with information about your language level beforehand.
The necessary forms you can get from one of our
partner agencies or directly at www.did.de. In case you have
any questions concerning your application for this program,
please contact us any time.
It is equally possible to attend a German school as a guest for
only 2 or 3 months. In this case the same deadlines both for
enrollment and starting dates of the program apply. According
to different holiday periods in the federal states, a whole school
term lasts 10 or 11 months, half a school term 5 to 7 months.
The stay always includes the appropriate holiday vacation period.
After passing the High School Program successfully you will
receive a certificate of attendance or diploma. However, you
should make inquiries about the guidelines for acknowledgement
of the High School Program in your own country and at
your school before you apply and provide us with the respective
