Morocco Program


(status 6 September 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 created the first Studienkolleg in Morocco. 

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. This Feststellungsprüfung will be valid for all universities in Germany.

The Studienkolleg started 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 students can apply directly to a university in Germany for the winter semester 2019/2020 in a technical field of study.

An entrance exam is required for this program. The entrance exam for the program starting in September 2019 will be offered in spring 2019.

The Freshman Institute of the FH Aachen will work together with the Moroccan German Consulting Group in Kenitra.

This organization is run by
