How does a Preparatory Year look like?
The Preparatory Courses are 100% taught in English language by qualified and certified teachers from Germany. We follow an intensive schedule of varied activities such as lecture-based input, practice sessions, applied skills sessions, projects, elective courses, and tutorials. The course contents focus on topics from different fields such as language, ethics, business, or culture. At the start of the course, you will participate in a workshop on Intercultural Awareness and German culture. As you make progress, you gain more control over your studies, by choosing your own
topics for assignments for example.
ISB Preparatory Course also offers you an intensive German language preparation in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The courses are organized in an interactive
small group setting with attention on individual feedback and progress. Our programs have been designed specifically to meet the needs of non-native speakers who need to learn to communicate effectively in an academic environment.
The program adopts the innovative approach of German for Academic Purposes which integrates both language and study skills.
