    Is the Studienkolleg located at the university?
    Or does the studienkolleg cooperate with the university just for registration?

      Hi, some Studienkolleg/s belong to the universities, approved by the universities and private Studienkolleg/s. You can choose it according to your overall background and requirements.

    Is it possible to study in Germany without going through studienkolleg? And can we join studienkolleg by only giving an English certificate such as GAC? (Global Assessment Certificate).

      Hi, if you have completed your high school studies under a national curriculum, you must attend a Studienkolleg to eventually qualify for a degree program in Germany.

      Most Studienkollgs are in German and therefore German language. Level of B1/B2 is mandatorily required to attend a Studienkolleg. For a few English-taught degree courses, such as B.E. in Mechatronics/Robotics/Logistics/Business and Engineering, a preparatory program/Studienkolleg is offered in English for which German language skills are not required.

      Hello Nagesh,

      Studienkolleg Glauchau is on the list of public Studienkolleg in Germany. Generally, no tuition fee is charged. Still, it’s decided while accepting your application, considering your overall qualifications, eligibility, and readiness. It’s highly advised to contact the Studienkolleg and let them know your current and previous qualifications.
