university placement in Germany

I´d say about 150 every year. GLS is an official testing center for TestDaF and telc C1 Hochschule. These exams and certificates are recognized by all universities in Germany, and many students who take a telc or TestDaF exam at GLS also use our university placement service.

Yes, provided that you fulfill all requirements for university studies in Germany, both in terms of academic background and knowledge of German. We support your application at 3 universities in Germany, and we will guide you through the application process in a way that makes sure that your application is successful.

Yes you can. When selecting a city, please bear in mind: Some universities / some cities in Germany are very popular, Berlin for example, Hamburg or Munich. And that means that you will have a lot of competitors if you apply at a university there. This is no problem if you have excellent grades. But if not, you may have to include smaller cities in your selection. But don't worry: We will assist you and help you find the university that fits your needs best.

Yes, there are fixed "Sprechstunden" at the GLS office, and we are happy to arrange individual meetings at any time you need them.

That depends: You don't if you already did university studies in your home country and/or if your high school diploma is accepted as equivalent to the German "Abitur". But don´t worry, we´ll check your documents for free and let you know if you would have to do "Studienkolleg" or not. Generally it looks like this: 60% of those we support do Studienkolleg, 40% don´t need that, i.e. are on an academic level that allows them to apply directly at a university.
