Studienvorbereitender C1-Kurs mit DSH-Vorbereitung

The Frankfurt UAS offers a preparatory German course for the DSH exam next to the DSH exam itself. This course is for applicants, who already possess good, but not sufficient German language skills in order to complete specialized studies at the Frankfurt UAS. The preparatory German courses usually take one semester and end with the DSH exam.  Prerequisite for the participation is proof of level B2 (CEFR).

The study-preparatory C1 language course with DSH exam training is aimed at prospective students with foreign educational qualifications.

Eight weeks of this semester language course are dedicated to the acquisition of C1 skills, while four weeks focus exclusively on targeted and intensive exam training. Successful completion of the course requires active use of the language skills already acquired at B2 level.

As part of the accompanying program, orientation is offered to help students choose the "right" course of study at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.

For an optimal start, we recommend attending the three-week bridge course B2+, which takes place online. The costs for this are 220 euros.

At least B2 (CEFR): A current proof of proficiency (B2 - exam certificate) must be presented at the time of registration.
