School Transition Courses

After successfully completing the Humboldt level B2, our students will be able to continue their secondary education in Germany. There they can complete their high school completion diploma or Abitur, which is the prerequisite for admission to a German university. To ease the transition between our German course and German school attendance, the Humboldt-Institut offers a special school transition course aimed at teaching the terminology and methodology in the most important subject areas taught in school.

The school transition course is organized into subject area modules: the natural sciences (mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry) and the humanities (history, politics, geography, religion). Art and music are covered as well. In addition to acquiring important technical vocabulary, students also learn how to summarize texts, work with sources, perform research and give presentations. Role-playing simulation games and project work also teach students how to work in groups.

The school transition course can only be booked after successfully passing the Humboldt level B2.
