Pathway to Germany
(University Preparation Programme)

Enroll into our University Preparation Programme, learn German, and complete your studies in one of the many public universities in Germany, tuition-free.

What Is The University Preparation Programme?

The UP Programme is a comprehensive pathway to Germany that prepares students for everything they need to study in Germany after they’ve completed a recognised pre-university programme.

For instance, if you’ve completed the A Level German pathway at MCKL (equivalent to the German language proficiency level B1 – beginner), German Educare continues to provide you with language classes for German proficiency level B2 and C1 (intermediate to advanced).

If you’ve completed any other recognised pre-university programme, our UP Programme also prepares you to study in a German university by offering German classes, on top of other services to ensure that your journey towards studying in Germany is a smooth sailing one.

On top of German language preparation and examinations, our experienced team also guides you with visa and university applications to ensure that everything is completed seamlessly. Local student support will also be provided to you once you arrive in Germany.

Hear from some of our students


“DREAM COME TRUE! I have waited for 7 years to study in Germany. German Educare did an excellent job providing me with the guidance and support required to get to where I am today. I have definitely approached famous educational institutes, organisations and embassies, but to no avail. They are one of the BEST consultants you can look for, to study in Germany! And NOPE, I am not paid for this review. (I wish I was)”


“My pathway to studying in Germany has definitely been made much smoother thanks to the constant advice and guidance by German Educare. I can now focus well on my studies without much worries about other upcoming matters like visa and internships as I already know how to deal with them one by one. To anyone who is planning on furthering their studies in Germany, I would recommend them to do it with German Educare!”


“I completed my A1 level with German Educare prior to commencing my postgraduate studies in Germany in September 2018. The language classes were conducted by a very experienced teacher, using a combination of methods to help different types of learners. The German Educare team is very professional and approachable, they were extremely helpful in aiding with my queries regarding the visa application and on moving to Germany. I would highly recommend the German Educare programme to anyone looking to pursue their higher education in Germany.”


“A very nice and helpful group of people. I am very grateful to have come across German Educare as they have guided me a lot through my journey of studying in Germany.”
