This helps you feel more confident and relaxed so you can demonstrate your best German language skills and take the next step forward into a better and brighter future.

If you have completed 2 years of college classes in the United States, or have earned an International Baccalaureate high school diploma (with HL German, and HL science), you may already be qualified to attend any public German university. You will have to prove your German language skills, but that's what this course will prepare you to do.

There are several advantages to studying in Germany:

- Public universities in Germany don't charge tuition, and the semester fee is all you have to pay, which is less than $400.

- German college programs do not require you to take "general education courses" that are outside of your field of interest.

- College students get many discounts, including very inexpensive public transportation.

Germany hopes you will get to know and love the German people and the country, so that after you graduate, you will accept a job and start your career in Germany. They want you to stay there to enjoy the food, the landscape, the entertainment and your new friends and professional network to build an intelligent and productive German economy.
