Morocco Program

(status 8 June 2018)

The Freshman Institute is an integrated part of the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences, a public university in Germany, and has offered the German foundation year (Studienkolleg) with the final entrance exam to German universities (Feststellungsprüfung) for many years.

As it is extremely difficult at the moment for students to be admitted to a German Studienkolleg, the Freshman Institute plans to create the first Studienkolleg in Morocco. 

The first year will start with the technical course (T-Kurs) in Kenitra on 3 September 2018.  The program will conclude after two semesters with the final entrance exam to German universities (Feststellungsprüfung) in May 2019 so that you can apply directly to a university in Germany for the winter semester 2019/2020 in a technical field of study.

This program has the following advantages:

  1. No entrance exam in Germany to a Studienkolleg with very limited spaces.
  2. After passing the entrance exam in Morocco you can start in the Studienkolleg in Kenitra, Morocco.
  3. The Studienkolleg in Morocco is significantly cheaper (no blocked bank account required!)
  4. The next Feststellungsprüfung will be at the end of May 2019 in Morocco.
  5. This Feststellungsprüfung will be valid for all universities in Germany.

An entrance exam is required for this program. The exam will be offered in Kenitra on 18 July 2018.
