What Our Graduates Say

Lisa

“Thanks to the Fit4FH preparatory course of the summer semester 2022, I was able to secure a spot at FH WKW. Without this course, it would have been nearly impossible for me to realize the opportunity of pursuing studies without a high school diploma in such a short time. The supporting professors were highly competent, patient, and always available to address any questions.”

Lisa

“The Fit4FH courses are an excellent program. Through this program, I was able to obtain the eligibility for university of applied sciences studies in a short period. The entire teaching staff is very friendly and always eager to help. The classes were conducted in a very diverse and interesting manner. I feel very well prepared for my upcoming studies.”

Merve

“I was lucky to have such a great teacher of the course I’ve taken, who gave me all the help I needed and was very responsive to his students, caring to elaborate on any questions asked and to repeat his explanation if needed.”
