Vorbereitung für die Aufnahme eines Studiums an einer deutschen Universität

Dear refugees who start studying in Germany or are interested in doing so,

the Berliner Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft PREPATORY COURSES and COACHING for non-native students, university-applicants and Studienkolleg-applicants, who want to improve their language skills and refresh the basics of social-, natural- and technoscience in German language.

German-language studying requires the ability to speak and write german on a native speaker's niveau. Hard to accomplish, isn't it?

Therefore we give you the chance to deepen your German language skills while learning the basics of social and natural science not only to successfully pass the Eignungsfestellungsprüfung but also to prepare for your further studies. The courses will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 pm. They're structured as following:

Tuesday: The Block "Natural Sciences" provides elementary knowledge in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

Wednesday: The Block "Technoscience" provides elementary knowledge in electrical engineering, civil engineering and mechanical engineering.

Thursday: The Block "Social Scineces" provides elementary knowledge in economy, law and civics.

All courses will be held completely in German.
Your German level has to be at least B1.

The first 4 weeks will be mostly teacher-centered teaching an open up after to transform into an university-seminar style. At the and of the Semester you will be abel to participate in an exam for a certificate that may help you for your application at the Studienkollegs and later on at the Universities. The target audience of this project are refugees who start studying in German or are interested in doing so an possess at least a basic knowledge of the German language.

If you are interested, apply via e-mail to "welcome@bwg-berlin.de". The application must include a short presentation of yourself and a motivation letter of about 300 words. Applications will only be accepted in German or English.
