Studienkolleg

Studienkolleg in Berlin

If you are thinking of beginning your university studies in Germany, you may firstly need to pass the German University Qualification Examination, called the Feststellungsprüfung (or FSP for short). You will need to pass the FSP if your secondary school certificate does not allow direct entrance into the German university system.

If you come from outside the EU, two semesters of university study in your home country are often sufficient to achieve direct access, depending on where you are from. On the information portal anabin.de , you can check whether your higher education entrance qualification is recognised in Germany.

If you need to pass the FSP to begin your studies, bbw can help prepare you for the examination at our preparatory college, called a Studienkolleg. At our Studienkolleg, located in the heart of Berlin, you will receive similar tuition to what a German secondary school pupil is required to study in their final year, but with a focus on either the technical pathway (T-Kurs) or the business pathway (W-Kurs). bbw does not offer "M" or "G" pathways.

As a guide, the T-Kurs includes physics and chemistry, while the W-Kurs includes economics and accounting units. This means that if you are thinking of later studying an engineering bachelor's degree in Germany, you will take the T-Kurs. Those thinking of studying an economics degree will be enrolled in the W-Kurs. Key topics in both include German, mathematics and informatics. All classes are taught in German.

Application Procedure

Prepare your Documents

All applications to the bbw Studienkolleg are made via uni-assist. A detailed overview of what you need to apply can be found here:

1. The first step to applying is to gather the following documents:

  • Secondary School graduation certificate from your home country
  • Grade sheet from your final year of secondary school
  • Your passport
  • German language certificate Level: CEF-B2

Please note that applicants from some countries may require extra documentation.

2. If your documents are not in English or German, you will need to have them translated by a court-certified translator into German or English.

3. Make scans of the original certificates and their certified translations ready to submit online to uni-assist.

4. Make certified copies of your certificates and translations for the final (postal) step of the application. More information about this certification process can be found here.

Submit your application

Once you have collected all your documents, submit your details to uni-assist by completing the form and registering here:

https://my.uni-assist.de/registrierung

1. Once you have registered your details, select the Bachelor course you would like to study at bbw (e.g. Handelsmanagement, Modemanagement oder Digital Industry 4.0). The course you choose will determine whether you are to study T or W pathways during the Studienkolleg.

2. During the online application process, you will be asked if you would like to enrol in the Studienkolleg. Check this box, and your application will be assessed for the Studienkolleg. (Should you forget to check this box, don't worry: Your application will be examined for admission to the Studienkolleg anyway.)

3. Print out, sign, and upload the application form as PDF and submit your application.

4. You will then receive notification about the next steps, which will include sending your certified copies by post and paying the uni-assist application fee.

5. If your documents are all in order, you will receive a letter stating your Provisional Entry to Studienkolleg from uni-assist that confirms your ability to enrol at bbw Studienkolleg. Uni-assist will forward your documentations and notification of provisional entry to bbw.

6. Within a week, you will receive the Studienkolleg study contract from bbw. This needs to be signed and returned to bbw.

7. After we have received the signed contract, we will send you the Acceptance and Registration Confirmation and an invoice of the study fees. After receipt of the payment, we will send you a provisional enrolment certificate. With this letter, you will be able to apply for a student visa at your nearest German embassy.

Application Deadlines

  • Winter Semester: 1st September of each year
  • Sommer Semester: 1st March of each year
Important! When applying for a student visa for Germany (international non-EU students), you must expect a waiting time of several weeks to sometimes two months. In individual cases, the waiting time may be longer. Therefore, please allow enough time to apply for your visa at the German missions in your home country.

Costs for Studienkolleg and FSP

Two-semester Studienkolleg fee: EUR 5,880.00

Feststellungsprüfung fee: EUR 700.00

Total Fee: EUR 6,580.00

A German C1 examination takes place at the end of the first semester. Passing the C1 exam is a prerequisite for transfer to the second semester and registration for the FSP at our partner university TU Berlin. By the end of February (for the summer FSP) or the end of August (for the winter FSP), we will register you for the FSP at TU Berlin. We will also transfer the fee to TU Berlin on your behalf.

Assessment Test

Within a few weeks of the conclusion of the two-semester Studienkolleg, you will be able to take the FSP at our partner university TU Berlin. As a successful bbw Studienkolleg graduate, you will also receive automatic acceptance into applicable undergraduate programmes offered at bbw University of Applied Sciences in Berlin. An example of the exam structure is as follows:
