New F+U Pathway Programme for Business Students: Admissions open!

With its first-class education system, Germany is an attractive place to study for many young people from all over the world. However, higher education in Germany may prove difficult as certificates obtained at schools and universities abroad are not always recognized.

F+U Academy of Languages now offers a new university pathway programme for international students whose certificates have not been recognized: the International Prep School (IPS).

IPS is a comprehensive preparation course with an official assessment test at the end enabling entrance to a university in Germany (Externe Feststellungsprüfung). IPS is a cooperative project between F+U Academy of Languages and HWTK University of Applied Sciences and can be attended by students who are planning to study a business-related degree programme at any one of Germany’s universities of applied sciences.
The 36-week preparatory course boasts a strong curriculum focusing on both German and English language training, mathematics, informatics as well as business administration and economics, thereby providing a thorough preparation which will enable students to complete their degree programme quickly and successfully.

Additionally, students who pass the final exam are guaranteed admission to a business-related degree programme at the HWTK.

F+U is currently accepting applications for the next IPS course, which will start in September 2016 and will be held in Heidelberg.

For detailed information on IPS and HWTK, visit the HWTK website or F+U’s info page on IPS.

From F+U into German TV: One Student’s Journey into 16th-Century Japan and German Television

This month, one of F+U Academy of Languages’ students featured as an actor in a documentary produced by German TV station ZDF. The documentary is part of the ZDF “Terra X” series and depicts world history in the 16th century.
As a part of the documentary is set in historical Japan, ZDF needed to cast Japanese actors and approached F+U Academy of Languages in Heidelberg, where a number of students from Japan are currently enrolled in German classes. In a casting conducted at F+U’s premises, 18-year-old Kohei Ide, who has been studying German at F+U for almost a year, was cast from among F+U’s Japanese student body.
For Kohei, acting in a German documentary on the history of Japan was an extraordinary experience in many ways. “It was my first job in Germany,” he says, “and it was also the first job where I could put my German to use.”
Between shootings, Kohei was able to practise his German by talking to co-actors and crew. He recalls that the conversation quickly turned to cultural differences and the image of the Japanese in German society. “A large number of the crew imagined the Japanese to be wearing kimonos all the time”, he says. “However, as I presented a different perspective, we were able to understand each other’s cultures and points of view, and I think that’s a good thing.”
The documentary, which was shot in an authentic Japanese Garden in the city of Kaiserslautern, was broadcast on January 24, 2016 on ZDF, and can be watched online on http://www.zdf.de/terra-x/zeitreise-die-welt-im-jahre-1500-41625924.html.
