Foundation Year

The foundation courses at the ISL Studienkolleg prepare future university students, whose secondary education certificate is not equivalent to the German Abitur, for their studies at a German University. The entrance requirement is a successfully-passed B2 level (you can obtain this level at ISL Sprachschule). Once you have B2 level, there is no additional entrance exam required. At the Foundation College, students not only improve their German skills, but they also learn a range of other subjects which will be
necessary for their future university studies. The ISL Studienkolleg offers the following courses:

  • T-Course (for mathematical, scientific or technical studies in Germany)
  • M-Course (for studies in the fields of Medicine, Biology or Pharmacy)
  • W-Course (for studies in the fields of economic or social sciences)

At the end of the ISL Foundation Year, the student will sit the so-called Feststellungsprüfung (University Assessment Exam) which is
equivalent to the German Abitur. After successfully passing the FSP, the student will be allowed to study at a German University.


Activities for International Students

We offer regular activities for our international students. Sight seeing, sports, excursions to cultural places, joining festivals, participating in sports events, going to education fairs, game nights or cooking together... ISL is not just learning the language! We want the students to learn something about German culture and share their cultures with us. Integration, fun and leisure activities are very important to make sure students feel comfortable in their new environment. Getting to know the class mates and leisure facilities in and around Koblenz is part of our activity program as well as exploring the rich history of the Middle Rhine region or going on weekend trips to German cities and universities. At the same time students practice the German language as they are accompanied and supported by our teaching staff when joining activities. ISL will prove that learning is not just work, it can be fun as well!
