Engineering Study Preparation Course for Private Students (SPM Holders)

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 course for private students is identical to the one for sponsored students. Modules I and II consist of German courses and the AUSMAT course (total duration: 18 months) and take place in Malaysia at Sunway College. Module III (total duration: 8 months) takes place in Germany and consists of advanced German courses, bridging courses in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry, intercultural training, as well as practical training in a specific industry (if obligatory). Students then begin their degree courses at German universities.

Selecting a German University

There are about 400 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

We provide assistance during the entire application and admission process, including providing information about admission requirements and helping students choose the right field of study at a university. Our aim: a smooth and speedy application process.

We also coordinate with the German embassy and provide support to obtain a visa.

Local Support in Germany

We would be happy to arrange accommodation for you during the program, if desired. We can arrange for pick up upon arrival in Germany to take you to your accommodation. We provide students with insurance packages (health, accident and third-party liability), assist you in opening bank accounts and handle all formalities regarding your residence permit. Our tutors will organize leisure activities and help you with everyday challenges.
