Shakhrom from Dushanbe, Tadjikistan

The German course was excellent. I reached level B2.2 within 9 months. I enjoyed the course very much! If you had any questions they were always very helpful. They also helped us when we needed support regarding organizational matters. The school provided organized social activities who took us out to see and get to know the city better and showed us the attractions of the city. I am very grateful for the teachers and the staff members particularly for giving me the possibility to learn the language so quickly.

A big help reaching my goals was the University Placement Service. I have received incredible support with all my Studienkolleg and university applications. The University Placement Service Team is very experienced with applications at Studienkollegs and universities all over Germany. It helped me to apply successfully for a Bachelor program in Mechanical Engineering at various Universities and helped me to get my acceptance at all of them.

Maria from Valencia, Venezuela

It was a very wonderful and productive experience. I reached the level of German that I needed in order to get accepted for a Master program in Industrial Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Stralsund.

The teachers are amazing. They helped me to adapt to Germany and the German culture so much. They made my stay here so much easier. The School helped me with everything from doctor’s appointments to administrational matters and to adapt to the life here in Germany.

The University Placement Service in particular helped me a lot with pursuing my academic goals. They were very helpful with the applications at universities so that I got accepted at a Master program.

I am very grateful for this wonderful experience and that I met not only professionals but that I found also good friends! I am grateful that I had the chance to get to know great people and a great culture.

Sharon Treasa Yeldo

We are pretty much a family now, we were introduced through the social programmes, and we are really good friends now. After my University Pathway Programme, I am hoping to complete my Studienkolleg and get into university. Berlin is a beautiful city, there is a saying: Berlin is not a city, it's a feeling. It's the best place for students.
