Guaranteed place of study

We guarantee a place of study at a bachelor´s programme at the Paderborn University to all graduates of our T an W courses. You can also apply at any other German university oder university of applied sciences, because the graduation certificate of the International Foundation College at Paderborn University will be accepted throughout Germany.

Course Duration

The W and T courses last for two semesters which are completed in approximately 8 - 9 months. At the end of the training there will be an assessment test/final exam (FSP), the successful completion of which entitles students to enter a bachelor program in a mathematical, natural science or engineering subject at a German university or university of applied science. The assessment test (FSP) can be failed once, and may be repeated at the earliest after 6 months at the same foundation college.
