This cooperative project between F+U Academy of Languages and HWTK - University of Applied Sciences has the same function as a Studienkolleg and offers courses that prepare international students for the official assessment test for university entrance in Germany (externe Feststellungsprüfung) at the Technische Universität Berlin. The preparatory courses can be attended by students who cannot yet provide the necessary qualifications to enter a German university directly and who are planning to study a business-related degree programme at a University of Applied Sciences in Germany.
As the IPS is affiliated to the HWTK - University of Applied Sciences, students who pass the externe Feststellungsprüfung are guaranteed admission to a degree programme, such as Business Administration, Business Informatics or Industrial Engineering (in preparation), at the HWTK in Berlin or in Baden-Baden.
The 36-week preparatory courses which are held at the new F+U Campus in Heidelberg start twice a year (September / February). The next course will start in September 2016. Each course includes a total of 40 teaching hours per week as well as a specialization in business administration / economics.
Prospective students of the IPS without the required language competence (B1 in German / A1 in English) can acquire the necessary skills at the F+U Academy of Languages in Heidelberg, Berlin or Darmstadt. Students can be accommodated in a student residence or in a carefully chosen host family.
