Morocco Programm

(status 28 March 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 Studienkollegs at several locations in Morocco.  These will be the only Studienkollegs from government organizations.

The first year will start with the technical course (T-Kurs) in 2018.  The program will conclude 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.

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 a Studienkolleg in 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 only in Kenitra due to the small number of applicants for other locations.


Exam: 04 April 2018
Time:  3:00 pm
Contakt: Jeffrey Lüpkes

Email: studienkolleg.kenitra(at)

The fee for the entrance exam is 60 euros

Bring to the exam your passport or other official identification with a photocopy, your school certificates and transcripts and proof of German language ability.  You only need pens and pencils; no calculators or other devices are permitted.

The results of the entrance exam will be available by 15 April 2018.

After the entrance exam, the technical course (T-Kurs) of the Studienkolleg will be offered in Kenitra from late August 2018 until the Feststellungsprüfung (final exam) in May 2019. 

We will soon post which Moroccan organization will offer the Freshman program in Kenitra, as well as the costs of the program. The Freshman Institute of the FH Aachen will supervise the entire Freshman program in Morocco.
