Structure + Content
In addition to a federal academic or vocational baccalaureate, a one-year vocational internship is also required for admission to the BSc degree programme. Successful completion of BFH’s university preparatory course for refugees meets these requirements.
Application-oriented preparatory course for a university of applied sciences degree programme
The course consists of a three-month language course, a three-month specialist preliminary course and a nine-month internship. The university preparatory course provides preliminary language and specialist education over a 15-month period for admission to a university of applied sciences degree programme. The time between the language course and specialist preliminary course is used to arrange the internship. The preliminary language courses start in April and the preliminary specialist courses start in August. The starting point of the internship can vary, but may not be earlier than November.
The course modules are geared towards the bachelor’s degree programmes of the School of Engineering and Computer Science. Coaching is provided for the full duration of the university preparatory courses.
Preliminary language course
The language course is provided for German and French and consists of a combination of classroom-based teaching and self-study.
Preliminary specialist course
The preliminary course is made up of eight modules of 48 lessons. Various modules can be attended depending on the intended degree discipline. The course is made up of classroom-based teaching (theoretical knowledge) and guided self-study (workshop and laboratory, problem-based learning). The modules are divided into half-day and full-day blocks.
