Information Day for Student Applicants from South Limburg at RWTH Aachen

The RWTH Aachen Student Advice Centre, the initiative "Studeren in Aken“ (Alcuinus), and the RWTH Aachen Language Center, also with the support of the "Stichting Voortgezet Onderwijs Parkstad Limburg SVOPL," have been organizing an information day in the fall specifically for prospective students from South Limburg for many years.

Besides getting an overview of degree programs offered at RWTH, students also have the opportunity to take part in a guided campus tour and to attend various lectures (including some in Dutch) on topics such as the general study experience in Aachen or application procedures. In the past, a language assessment test, which students could take to determine whether they had the German skills necessary for studies at RWTH Aachen, was an important part of the day as well.

Now, as of 2018, all prospective students from South Limburg – provided they have taken German for 5 years and completed their classes with at least a grade of 5,5 (satisfactory, sufficient) – can be admitted to RWTH Aachen University without having to provide proof of further language tests, such as the DSH-exemption, DSH-test, or other similar certificates. Therefore, language tests will no longer be offered on Information Day for Limburg Students. Representatives from the language and writing center will, however, be on hand to present their respective course offerings. New items on the day's agenda are, on one hand, the opportunity for prospective students to attend regular lectures, and on the other, to enjoy a joint meal at one of RWTH's dining halls.

We hope that many prospective students from South Limburg realize the attraction of RWTH as a great place to study and urge them to take this opportunity to get more information. Registration is not required to attend this event.
