CHOOSING GERMANY AS A DESTINATION TO STUDY ABROAD

CHOOSING GERMANY AS A DESTINATION TO STUDY ABROAD

 

Germany is highly popular among international students. This is mainly because of the country’s many excellent universities, its dynamic student life and good funding options. If you have decided to come to Germany, read on to find out how you can plan your study visit and what help is available.

Focus on practice: universities of applied sciences

Universities of applied sciences have a practice-oriented academic approach. They focus more on professional application than on theory. Their range of subjects comprises specific fields such as technology, economics, social work or medicine. In the practical phases, students at universities of applied sciences complete work placements, longer project phases or entire practical semesters, often in businesses.

Colleges of art and music

Colleges of art and music train young artists such as musicians, architects, fine artists and designers. Admission requirements include a specific talent which applicants must demonstrate in an entrance examination. Especially talented students may sometimes also be admitted without a qualification for admission to higher education.

Location

Choosing the right location for studying is also important. Would you prefer a major university town such as Munich, Cologne or Hamburg? Or a smaller city that nevertheless has many students among its population, like Heidelberg or Gottingen? Places that are not so very well known for their higher education institution often have the advantage that lecturers and professors are more accessible; finding accommodation is also easier.
