BetreuungsInitiatitive Deutsche Auslands- und Partnerschulen (BIDS)Open areaClose area
From 2008-2010 and 2015-2018 TH Wildau took part in the “BIDS” program initiated by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). From 2020 the TH Wildau, in cooperation with the Martin Luther University Halle (Saale), will again be part of the BIDS program.
The program promotes direct cooperation between German Schools abroad and German Universities. The focus of the BIDS program is on the intensive support and supervision of the first-year students through motivational scholarships, as well as on the organization of trial studies for students at the TH Wildau. The TH concentrates on cooperation with German Schools in Latin America.
Questions from pupils, graduates or student advisors from German Schools abroad and partner schools that arise in connection with the application and study in Wildau can be directed to incoming(at)th-wildau.de.
The BIDS program is funded by the DAAD with funds from the Federal Foreign Office (AA).
What does TH Wildau offer as part of BIDS?
- Personalized advice: support is the be-all and end-all
In addition to general study advice, students from DS partner schools receive further support in the International Office with questions about applications, courses, scholarships, accommodation, etc. We advise you on study-related processes and you get help with orientation at the place of study. You will get advise not only at the beginning, but also during and after your studies at the TH Wildau.
- Trial course "Schnupperstudium": Explore the TH Wildau personally!
Get to know the structure and offers of the TH Wildau personally during a visit. During your visit you will learn more about our range of study programmes and exchange experiences with former students of German Schools who are currently enrolled in Wildau. We sincerely invite you to this!
- Visits in Latinamerica: Visits to our cooperation partners
As part of an information trip, the TH Wildau visits several German Schools in Latin America every year. We report on-site about our study programmes and provide study advisory services in Spanish, thus informing both pupils and parents about studying and living in Wildau.
- Motivational scholarships
The Technical University of Wildau supports excellent graduates from German foreign and language diploma schools and awards motivation scholarships once per semester. The BIDS scholarships are aimed to students in their first year of study.

What do our students think of us?
Cesar Josue Calderon Alvarado
(DS Managua, Nicaragua), Industrial Engineering student
"In my last year of school I passed the International Baccalaurate (IB). When I came to Wildau, I was welcomed by a buddy who was by my side for the first few weeks. The staff at the International Office (Denise S . Tarbuch, Carolina Winkler and Simon Devos) supported me in all matters. Studying in Wildau is also a good choice, as the TH is one of the best universities in Germany. The Bachelor is well structured and very interesting . For these reasons, I can recommend studying at the TH Wildau."
Jose Esteban Lema Arango
(DS Medellin, Colombia), Industrial Engineering student
"It has always been my dream to study in Germany. When I arrived in Germany, to be honest, I was a bit scared, as I didn't know anything about the TH-Wildau. However, I was very surprised when I got here. The TH is not only a wonderful place, it is a place where I didn't feel far away from home. I not only made new friends but a new family who not only supports me with my studies but also helps me a lot in my private life. Wildau is now my home and I am very happy about it."
William Orlando Marcia Molares
(DS Nicaragua), Telematics student
"I was lucky enough to get to know TH Wildau as early as 2012 during a trial course organized by my school. I already liked TH Wildau at that time very much. My study programme was difficult at first because of the language and the content, but I got used to the professors and their subjects. I felt very much at home there. When I had doubts, people always reacteded in a friendly manner and also understood my situation as a foreigner and as a new student. What I like most about Wildau is the multicultural life on campus."
Sebastián Adriano Ampuero Morisaki
(DS Arequipa, Peru), Telematics student
"At that time I was very satisfied with my performance in the first semester and applied for the BIDS scholarship. Fortunately, I was able to get a scholarship. Thanks to this support, it was easier for me to do the second semester."
Luis Fernando Cespedes Mendoza
(DS Cali, Colombia), European Management student
"I was looking for a university and the perfect study programme for myself for a long time. I have now found that in Wildau. I feel very much at home in Wildau and I am happy. The lecturers are competent and helpful. As an international student, I can say that studying at the TH Wildau is a good and valuable experience."
Gerardo Conrado Schuhbauer Torres
(DS Arequipa, Peru and BBZ in Lima, Peru), Business Administration student
"At the beginning of the semester I was impressed by the modern infrastructure that most university buildings have. The teachers were very attentive and friendly. My classmates offered me their help and support, so the change was not so drastic. In Wildau I have I found a balance in my life, here I can concentrate on my studies because there are not so many distractions and in my free time I go to Berlin to have fun. I am very happy at this university and would like recommend it."
Ana Maria Pineda Collazos
(DS Cali, Colombia), Industrial Engineering student
"I found my study course very comprehensive and the university well structured. It is a mixture between an old and modern campus university. I get an international degree and more international opportunities. You would then have the opportunity to do a master's degree and therefore better opportunities to find a job. So I can say that this experience is worthwhile."
(DS Medellin, Colombia), Business Administration student
"When people ask me why Wildau? Why the TH Wildau? Why not another city or TH or university? There is a simple answer. Because I don't need another city or place. Here in Wildau I have everything I need. The TH is very good, the infrastructure itself is also quite good. It's very quiet, the prices are good and Berlin is about 40 minutes away by train. In general, my experiences (studying and living) are very positive. That's why I recommend studying here."
(DS Arequipa, Peru), Biosystems Technology/Bioinformatics student
"... here in Wildau there are very nice and understanding people who did exactly the same thing and helped me integrate. They gave me the security that I lacked that I was doing the right thing. I had even more success whenI received the BIDS motivation grant during my first semester. Wildau is a harmonious mixture between the peace of a small town that helps me to concentrate when I have to study hard and fun from Berlin, a very big city, even the capital of Germany, where something always happens. You can never get bored there. A very nice balance. I am very satisfied with my studies here. I'm happy that I came here."
Gustav Adolf Vides Mezquita
(DS El Salvador, San Salvador), European Management student
"In the second semester I received the BIDS scholarship for former students from German schools abroad. I also enjoy a quiet life in Wildau and at the same time a dynamic life in Berlin. For all these reasons, I can only recommend studying in Wildau."
Paola Magda Zapata Poppe
(DS La Paz, Bolivia), Business Administration student
"You get a lot of help from the International Office, they help you with the apartment search, with registrations and much more. I got a room very quickly at the Studtenwerk Potsdam. The student residence has many advantages, e.g. the student residences are very close from the TH Wildau. At the TH Wildau there is also a cafeteria where you can find different menus. The courses have a pleasant number of participants, i.e. around 20 to 30 students per course. The lectures take place in very modern rooms."
(DS Lima, Peru and BBZ Lima, Peru), Business Administration student
"After my arrival in Wildau I met a group of people who kindly introduced me to life here and who would always help me without hesitation ... from the very first day I realized that there is an friendy and solidarity atmosphere here. Studying in Wildau means feeling satisfied with yourself and knowing that you can always count on someone. Studying here is a unique and very rewarding experience and I would not hesitate to consider Wildau again for my studies."
