During the application trainings, students get to know the features and specifics of German applications. You will learn about the structure of an application and the rules you should observe when writing an application. By observing these application rules, you will boost your chances for a successful application at a German company. We thus highly recommend taking advantage of this offer!

After the application training you also have the opportunity to have your personal application checked.

Please register via FHWS E-Learning.

During the application training, students can get their applications checked.

Even if you wrote your application according to the application rules already, it is worthwhile getting it checked by a third person. We offer this service during the application training!

Please register via FHWS E-Learning.

There is also the event Presenting Local Companies. Various providers, for example the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK), Region Mainfranken or the local employment agency, introduce you the region of Lower Franconia.
