Pre College Program (1 year): 8.200,-
International students who are interested in studies in technical fields and need to take supplementary courses to apply for one of UAS Technikum Wien´s Bachelor or Master Programs. Students who want to improve their German and English skills for a Bachelor or Master Program are warmly welcomed.
Students who have already gained some German language skills, we recommend our one-year program at UAS Technikum Wien. Students without any German language skills we strongly recommend our Pre College Program extended, lasting three or four semesters.
Plan of Teaching
German, English and Mathematic classes including tutorials in all subjects and accompanied with working experience in labs.
German, Physics, Computer Science, Biology and Electrical Engineering including tutorials in all subjects and accompanied with working experience in labs.
The Pre College Program, lasting 2 semesters, efficiently prepares students with some prior German-language skills for a course of studies in Austria, increasing their technical knowledge to first-semester level and boosting their German-language skills to level B2.
To cover the goals tutorials accompany all language courses for practical language use and all natural-scientific courses like Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Biology and Computer Science. The technical courses are taught in a dual mode: the students learn technical language skills together with practical use by working in laboratories.
