Study in Germany


Subject and place of study

While choosing a course of subject, you should consider different criteria and ask yourself the following questions: What am I interested in? What are my talents and preferences? What kind of plans do I have for my future? What do I want to do later? In what field do I want to work?

You should not focus only on your future chances in the job market, because without real interest and high motivation, the success of your studies declines as experience shows.

Meanwhile, there is a vast offer of subjects at the institutions of higher education. A first overview can be found at the homepage of the “Hochschulkompass”. It lists all institutions of higher education and all subjects and you can get the first important information there.
If you are interested in a special subject you can directly contact the international office of the chosen university. The contact details can also be found on the “Hochschulkompass”-homepage.

The best place for you studies depends on your preferences. You can find high quality education both in the big cities and in smaller ones. Many universities are well known for their reputation in a special subject. You can inquire this here.
