DSH preparatory course

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 preparatory course is a language course offered during the semester at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences for  the preparation for the DSH exam (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH) for prospective students with foreign educational qualification. In addition, the preparatory course offers orientation in the choice of the 'right' degree course at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.
For an optimal start we recommend attending the one-month bridging course B2+  at a fee of 75 Euro.

Minimum B2 (CEFR). A proof (B2 - certificate) must be presented upon registration.
