In co-operation with the DAAD, the Universities of Freiburg, Leipzig, Duisburg-Essen and the IIK Duesseldorf offer a “Deutschlandkundlicher Winterkurs” lasting 6 weeks. The Hochschulwinterkurs (University Winter Course) is a study programme aims to help foreign students improve their knowledge of German (general language, special language) and their cultural knowledge of the country. Applicants are selected based on their previous academic achievements, convincing arguments for their choice of study programme and subject, and their knowledge of German. The scholarship funds the course, accommodation, and travel expenses. Jessica will be attending the University of Freiburg for the duration of the course.
