University advice

We offer a university advice service for our learners at the school who after their language course aim to begin a degree course at a German university. The service includes checking documentation, orientation and help in the selection of suitable universities/subjects, assistance with up to three university applications, and the correction of letters of motivation and the CV.
Requirement: Higher education admission qualification in the learner’s home country. Fee: €300.

Provisional admission

We offer university application support for learners who have booked an intensive course of at least 12 weeks at our school and require provisional university admission for their visa application. We check the application documents and assist with the preparation of application documents for up to two universities, correction of the letters of motivation/CV and communication with the universities. The processing time for the individual universities can take up to ten weeks; this should be taken into account in the application process.
Admission requirement: Evidence of the higher education admission qualification in the learner’s home country.
Fee: €550 (including processing fees charged by the respective university.)
(A successful application cannot be guaranteed. If the application is rejected by the university €200 of the administration fee will be refunded. The university’s processing fee is non-refundable.)

Support with official administration

We offer customers requiring a visa the following services after arrival: support in almost all official administration matters, convenient registration or re-registration at the town hall, advice and appointment scheduling for opening or activating a bank account, help with organising German health insurance, checking documents for the immigration authorities and general information on extending visas.

For sports lessons all that is normally required is a small fee, payable to the sports club.

Requirements: Participation in an intensive course of at least two weeks and knowledge of German (level B1; for an internship at the F+U Academy of Languages level A1 is acceptable). Applicants from third countries must provide a work visa for the internship (e.g. a Working Holiday visa). All applicants must also provide evidence that the internship supports career orientation (orientation internship) or is to be carried out as an accompaniment to training or studies. Supporting evidence may include, for example, a training contract, course enrolment form or school letter of authorisation.
