International Students Preparation Program PPS English for Bachelor

Berlin International College
Campus Full time 8 months January 2017 Germany Berlin

The unique BIC Preparation Program for students who prefer to study their Engineering Bachelor in English. [+]

Best Course Studies in Engineering & Technology 2017. The unique BIC Preparation Program for students who prefer to study their Engineering Bachelor in English. Your benefits The entire preparation program, as well as the studies at the University are taught in English – there is no need to learn German! Guaranteed place at a partner university – no extra application necessary No tuition fees at the University Small classes for optimal student-teacher ratio Receive an engineering degree in Germany - the country of engineers Optional: Twin Bachelor Degree Program – finishing higher semester lectures in German for a double degree in English and German Details The program gives you direct entrance to the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) once finished successfully. You will receive a conditional offer letter from the FHWS before starting the preparation program. The entire program is taught in English – no need to learn German! The preparation program consists of courses in multiple subjects, which are Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Computer Science. The program will prepare you for your final exams, similar to the German Feststellungsprüfung (FSP). The exams will take place at BIC in Berlin. Prerequisite (before starting the University studies): Minimum of 80 points on the TOEFL iBT or IELTS certificate of at least 6.5. This prerequisite needs to be met until you start your studies at the University. Program dates: Preparation program, Part I: 02.01. - 31.03.2017 Spring Break: 03.04. - 16.04.2017 Preparation program, Part II: 17.04. - 14.07.2017 Finals: 17.07. - 11.08.2017 Start classes University (FHWS): October 2017 FAQ What documents are required to apply to this program? Passport Secondary school certificates and transcripts (in original language and as legally attested translations in German or English) Copies of university certificates and transcripts (if you attended a university before) TOEFL or IELTS test result (if test has been taken before) Copy of Visa or Aufenthaltsgenehmigung (only applicable for students already residing in Germany) What is the admission process for this program? Apply via the BIC online application form including entering your personal information, uploading the required documents and paying the 174 EUR application fee. Uni-assist tests your documents regarding your eligibility to study in Germany. The chosen BIC Partner University issues a conditional offer letter on the basis of the uni-assist test result. You receive the acceptance letter from BIC and the conditional offer letter from the university via email and regular mail. Is this program available online? BIC programs are all exclusively at our campus in Berlin – in the up and coming district Friedrichshain. May I work to finance my studies? Working is not permitted for students with a study-preparation visa during the first calendar year of receipt of their visa. Only starting with the second calendar year you are allowed to work 120 full days per year or 240 half days per year. Student jobs (at the university or research facilities) are exempted from this rule. Is accommodation included in the tuition fees? Accommodation is not included in the tuition fees. BIC offers its own accommodations to students on basis of a waiting list. Additionally, we provide you with websites, addresses and other tips to find alternative accommodation in Berlin. Do I need health insurance? There is an obligation by law for all temporary and permanent German residents to have health insurance. For students the coverage that a travel insurance provides is insufficient. Hence, you will need to take out a health insurance from a German private health insurance provider or arrange for an extension of the health insurance you have in your home country, if the specifics of that health insurance cover the requirements that the foreign registration office (Ausländerbehörde) demands. How high are living costs in Berlin The German embassy requires proof of international students that they can finance their living costs with at least 720 EUR per month. This is a good reference point. Berlin is a little more expensive than the average city, and costs - e.g. average rent - are rising. Therefore 800 Euro per month would probably be advisable. Do I have to apply for a visa? Any non-EU student will have to apply for a study-preparation/student visa (national visa). As the application process can take up to 12 weeks, sometimes even longer, you should apply as soon as possible. You can receive advice and guidance from the BIC Admissions Team. All EU residents only need to register and apply for a residence permit, once they arrived in Germany. Does BIC help with the visa process? The BIC student advisors will provide you with exact website links, useful tips and information on how to prepare for the visa application. Do I have to know German to study this program? The PPS English program is taught entirely in English, therefore no German knowledge is required. [-]

What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed? Physics is a stimulating, exciting and challenging subject. It is important, not only as a subject in its own right, but also as an essential element in all other natural Science, Engineering and Technology. There is also a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction to be derived from an understanding of the most recent development in Physics research. We study the AQA Physics A Syllabus: It provides a seamless transition to A level from previous studies and develops your interest and enthusiasm for Physics. This covers a wide range of topics from elementary particle physics to Newton's laws; from electrical circuits to gravitational fields. The course is split into a number of units, the AS units are covered in the first year and the A Level units in the second year. You will be taught through lectures, practical work, and problem solving. You will have access to two fully equipped physics laboratories. What topics will I study? AS Level Assessment Paper 1 (50% of AS) - Short and long answer questions split by topic The following is assessed: Measurements and their Errors Particles and radiation Waves Mechanics and materials Electricity Paper 2 (50% of AS Level) - the following is assessed: Section A: Short and long answer questions on practical skills and data analysis Section B: short and long answers questions from across all areas of AS Content Section C: 30 multiple choice questions A Level Assessment Paper 1 (34% of A Level) - the following is assessed: Sections: 1-5 and further mechanics Paper 2 (34% of A Level) - the following is assessed: Thermal Physics, Fields & their consequences, and Nuclear Physics Paper 3 (32% of A Level) - the following is assessed: Section A: compulsory - Practical skills and data analysis Section B: students should enter for one of the followings: Astrophysics Turning points in Physics Engineering Physics What experiences will I get? Guest speakers broaden the students’ horizon in physics. What are the entry requirements? You need five GCSEs at grade C or above (including English language) and three GCSEs at grade D or above, with maths and GCSE additional science or physics at grade B or above. If you have a grade B in maths, a compulsory supplementary maths course is provided - this requires attendance at an extra maths lesson per week. A grade D or above is needed at the end of year 1 for progression to year 2 of the A Level. What can I study alongside this course? This course can be combined with other courses to make a full programme. What facilities are there? You will have access to new fully equipped laboratories and PCs as well as access to a learning resource centre. What can the course lead on to?
