German + boarding school

Our “Secondary Education in Germany” program is geared towards highly motivated students ages 10 to 17, and offers them the chance to attend a boarding school in Germany. There the students will study to pass the Abitur, which is the required diploma for university admission in Germany.

Preparatory German courses

In order to be admitted to a German boarding school, international students must demonstrate generally above-average academic performance, as well as sufficient knowledge of the German language. This is why our students are asked first of all to attend an intensive German language course with 30 lessons of 45 minutes in Bad Schussenried or Lindenberg.

In both schools we offer our students ideal conditions to feel at ease and get used to a life in Germany. Through lessons in small classes they learn the German language quickly and thoroughly. Outside of the classroom the students will receive optimal support and will become acquainted with living in a boarding school community.

Finding the right boarding school

Having successfully completed the German language course, students are then transferred to one of 40 boarding school in Germany and integrated into a class according to their age and performance level. The Humboldt-Institut cooperates with highly respected boarding schools throughout Germany and will gladly help students to find the school that is right for them. Depending on their prior skill level, students will need from two to eight months to reach the required level of German (at least completion of Humboldt level B2).

The Humboldt-Institut divides its courses into six levels based on the Common European Framework for Languages.

This graphic shows you the sequence and the levels of the German courses at the Humboldt-Institut. The durations are indicated for an intensive course 30 with 30 lessons per week.

Level A1 (5 weeks), Level A2 (5 weeks), Level B1 (5 weeks), Level B2.1 (5 weeks), Level B2.2 (5 weeks), School Transition Course (5 weeks), Level C1.1 (5 weeks), Level C1.2 (5 weeks)

 

Additional offer

Following the regular German language course, we offer our students a five-week school transition course. After this preparatory course they may switch to a German boarding school.
