Phase 1: Summer School
The ProRef program starts with the Summer School in July. During this first phase, the participants have the opportunity to refresh their language skills in German at level B1+ or B2 and English at B1+. In addition, introductory courses consisting of four key competence modules (methodological competence, social and self-competence, cultural competence, media and IT competence) take place.
Phase 2: Fall Semester
The fall semester starts in mid-September with four-month language courses in German at level B2 or C1 and English at B2. There will also be advanced courses from the four key competence modules and a mid-term exam.
Phase 3: Winter School
The Winter School starts in January with two-month German courses at level B2 or C1 and an English course at level B2. Additionally, courses from the four key competence modules will be continued.
Phase 4: Spring Semester
In addition to the four-month German language courses at level B2/C1 and the English language course at level B2/C1, there are further courses from the four key competence modules. The spring semester concludes the ProRef program with an officially recognised final exam.
The courses of phases 2-4 provide a qualification for all German, English or bilingual courses at the EUF, but also for courses at other universities.
