The state-recognized TUDIAS Preparatory College serves to prepare international applicants for their studies in terms of subject and language. The program is explicitly aimed at applicants who do not yet have the necessary preconditions to be accepted to German university. The most important preconditions include sufficient knowledge of German and a school or university degree. The Preparatory College intensively prepares international applicants whose high school diploma is not sufficient to be accepted for university studies in Germany. The course lasts a total of two semesters. Participants then take an internal assessment test to obtain their university entrance qualification.
Preparation for the assessment test takes place in specialized courses. The focus areas are determined depending on the student's desired course of study:
- T-course for technical, mathematical, and natural science studies
- M-course for medical and biology studies
- W-course for economic and social science studies
