Preparatory course

German: Studienkolleg

A preparatory course (Studienkolleg) is a preparatory course for people from abroad applying to study in Germany and whose school-leaving certificate is not recognised as being equivalent to the German Abitur. The assessment (Feststellungsprüfung) at the end of this one-year course is equivalent to a German qualification for university entrance.
