Pupils are prepared linguistically and interculturally for direct entry into a course of study at a German university.

Project description

Studienbrücke Mexico and Brazil

The “Studienbrücke” is a worldwide preparatory education program from the Goethe-Institut that works to prepare students with outstanding academic performance for starting a bachelor's program at a German university in a STEM subject or in the field of economics. This aims to provide an incentive for qualified students from non-EU countries to learn German and to come to Germany. In addition to language courses, subject-specific modules are also offered, as well as  intercultural training and modules to help students learn about German university culture. Depending on the language level when they start, the preparation time for the students is between one and three years. The Goethe-Institut supports the students during the preparation period abroad and when they start their studies at partner universities in Germany. The program is paid for by the students themselves but partial scholarships are awarded to particularly talented participants. The Hans Hermann Voss Foundation funds twelve scholarships for students in Mexico and five scholarships for students in Brazil.

Further information can be found on the website of the Goethe-Institut.
