Germany

Studying Abroad in Germany is a big chance not only for European people but for students from all over the world. They benefit from a high quality educational system, learn a new language and gain experience from this interesting country. It doesn't matter if one is spending his whole studies in Germany or is just interested in a term abroad; these pages provide the necessary information about all relevant topics.

Every study program has its own study conditions and curriculum. With the help of these two it is easy to get along with all the different courses. The study conditions describe which subjects and lectures there are and where they have different weights. It also says which lectures need to be absolved. The curriculum shows what subject has to be done in which term. To make your own timetable it is also possible to ask for help among older students or to ask the student advisor.

Germany

In Germany one study year contains two terms called semester. There is a summer and a winter term. Each term lasts half a year and contains two parts, the lecture period and the lecture-free period. In the lecture period every lecture and class takes place at university. In the lecture-free period the end of term exams take place and it is also possible to make an internship, to work or to enjoy your holidays.

At university there are different kinds of lectures. The normal lectures are main part of the studies in most of the programs. A professor speaks in front of the students about important content. On the contrary, in seminars there is an exchange between the professor and his or her students and in exercises the students can apply their theoretical knowledge in practical projects.

The educational system of Germany is underlying to continuous changes and reforms. Main point in the last years was the reorganization of the Gymnasium. The nine year education was changed into an eight year education to get the Abitur. Furthermore, the academic system had changed because of the Bologna reform. The degrees obtained are now called Bachelor and Master.

Studying in Germany requires the graduate degree Abitur or the advanced technical college entrance qualification. International students have to show a similar graduate degree. Until now it was not possible to build a central organization for application and award of university places. Because of this the applications still need to be sent to every university or advanced technical college.

The admission requirements are also defined by the universities. Therefore, they can be different for the same subjects at different universities. In Germany there are three different kinds of advanced colleges or universities. Arts, film or music advanced colleges offer practical education in the artistic subjects. Advanced technical colleges however, cover the scientific and social subjects. They also set value on practical experiences in their education. The third category is the so called university. They offer all different kinds of subjects. Practical experience is an important point as well but the universities are especially famous for their firm theoretical education.

Therefore, in some areas tuition fees were abolished in other areas they are very small. Moreover, there are numerous possibilities to get help from the government, for example Bafög-money.

How much does it cost to study in Germany ?

In spring 2014, Lower Saxony will be the last of Germany's 16 states (known as Länder) to abolish tuition fees for undergraduate students at public universities. Both national and international undergraduate students at public universities in Germany will get free tuition from next year, and will only need to pay a small sum towards administration and other costs per semester (there are two per year).

Of course these are just averages - the amount it costs to study in Germany depends on variables such as your level of study and how long your course lasts, whether your university is private or public, and which German state you will study in. Read on for more detailed information...
