Germany is one of the three most popular places to study for foreign students. This is hardly surprising: higher education institutions in Germany offer the highest academic standards – and as such are the perfect springboard for a successful career at home or worldwide. The Goethe-Institut’s Studienbrücke programme is specifically designed to prepare students from abroad wishing to embark directly on a course of study in Germany.
In 2018, there will be the opportunity to apply for scholarships to cover the tuition fees. The participants will have to cover the costs for tuition materials and for those residing outside of Bangkok for board and lodging.
In 2018 high school graduates will need the language proficiency level A1 or higher to take part in the Studienbrücke programme.

All language proficiency levels must be proven by a certificate, a confirmation of attendance or a placement test.
Following preparatory language courses and the TestDaF preparatory course, the TestDaF is taken within the framework of the Studienbrücke programme.
To study at a German university, prospective students have to prove a sufficient command of German at B2/C1 level. This proof can be obtained by successfully completing the TestDaF at level 4. The test comprises four sections: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and oral expression. The test can be taken at the Goethe-Institut Thailand or at another test centre near to where you live.

Passing the TestAS forms part of the Studienbrücke programme’s university preparation.

The TestAS is a central and standardized scholastic aptitude test for prospective students from abroad. They have to pass the test with a minimum score of 100 points in order to be admitted to study at one of the Studienbrücke programme’s partner universities. The test comprises a core test of cognitive abilities, plus a subject-specific test either for the subjects mathematics, IT and science, or for the engineering sciences.
