The Freshman Institute is an integrated part of the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences, a public university in Germany, that offers a German foundation year (Studienkolleg) to international students who do not meet the standard admission requirements to Germany universities.
As it is extremely difficult at the moment for students to be admitted to a German Studienkolleg, the Freshman Institute created the ﬁrst Studienkolleg in Lebanon. The Lebanon Program of the Freshman Institute started in 2004 as an alternative to attending the foundation year in Germany. Since then hundreds of Lebanese students have completed the program and been admitted to bachelor’s programs in engineering at the FH Aachen.
An entrance exam is required for this program. The entrance exam for the program starting in September 2020 will be offered directly before the course starts in October. See the contact below for more information.
Courses include German, math, and physics, as well as a 12-week internship.
This program has the following advantages:
After successful completion of the Freshman program, students are guaranteed admission to one of these engineering bachelor’s programs at the FH Aachen:
Rail Vehicle Engineering
