What is Studienkolleg?

Studienkolleg is a set of courses that teaches an applicant language skills required for the university entrance exam. Studienkolleg also adjusts the applicant's knowledge as well as familiarity of scientific methods, based on the respective area of studies.
MDWi offers students from all over the world the opportunity to learn German language and T-courses ONLY. This will ensure their acceptance at any German university.
Due to close cooperation with Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, students get pre-conditional acceptance and direct admission after successful completion of Studienkolleg.

Students in C1 will be able to understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. They can also express themselves fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions.

They can also use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. Students can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.

Studienkolleg T-courses

Course Description:
The course will deal with technical technologies and specifically the information technology. The focus of this course is to introduce students to basics of programming.

The technical technology part of the course will focus on the numerical representation and boolean algebra.
Course Description:
The course is divided between two areas of analysis and analytical Geometery/Linear algebra.

To start off with, the class knowledge will be brought to the same level of all students. Then, the main role of mathematics course is to help students use mathematical methods of thinking and working.

Through out the course, students will be subjected to many excercises which will ensure the best understanding and recognising mathematical solutions and contexts.
Course Description:
At the beginning of the physics course, students will be brought to the same level.

Students will learn to cope step by step with complex formulations through exercises, by doing so they will expand their language and subject knowledge as well as the introduction of the scientific methods and techniques which are required by universities in Germany.
Course Description:
The focus of this course is to help students recognise problems and develop solutions with the ability to work in teams and expanding the knowledge of chemical specialist language.

The course is going to include topics like gas laws, atomic models, chemical bonding, acid-based theories and electrochemistry.

German Language test for entrance to higher education institution (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugung, DSH)


The DSH is a language examination which tests if you are capable of attending studies at a university in Germany. The DSH exam is commenced at the university and divided into written and oral exam parts.

Suitability Examination T (Feststellungsprüfung T)


After taking part in T-courses, An Feststellungsprüfung exam written or oral form must be taken (depends on teachers based on marks): The test consists of one part of German language (DaF) and examinations in mathematics, chemistry and information technology.

Examples of examination papers of written Feststellungsprüfung T:

Our qualified staff will prepare students for FSP-exam.
