Our Services

We are your one-stop service provider for further education at a German university or University of Applied Sciences. Benefit from our longstanding relationship with public universities over the span of 50 years. We provide counseling and guidance to meet students' specific needs, including preparation courses, university selection, application and admission. Our aim: to make your entire stay in Germany successful, memorable and enriching.

Study Preparation Course

The structure of the study preparation courses are identical to those for sponsored students. Module I and II consist of German courses and the AUSMAT course (total duration: 18 months) and take place in Malaysia at First City University College (FCUC). Module III (total duration: 8 months) takes places in Germany and consists of advanced German courses, bridging courses in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and practical training in a specific industry. Students then begin their degree courses at German universities.

Selecting a German University

There are more than 300 public universities and Universities of Applied Sciences in Germany. Utilizing our extensive network, we help students find the right university to suit their desired course of study.

Admission & Application Process, Visa Application
