Intro
Pforzheim has a long history in jewelry production and watchmaking. The Goldschmiedeschule mit Uhrmacherschule is the oldest vocational college founded in 1768. Following this tradition, our focus is a profound training in the techniques and skills of goldsmithing and watchmaking. With 19 well-equipped workshop areas, the students are spending most of their time at the bench or in studios for special techniques like engraving, enameling, stone setting, stone cutting, or silversmithing.

 
Requirements
We have several departments from basic apprenticeship to further education in which the working language is German with the B2 level demanded.
