Almost all German universities also offer internationally oriented B.A. and M.A. degree courses for both German and foreign students. These courses are usually taught in English.

You can enroll in these courses even if you don't speak any German You can always visit German language courses during your studies. Subjects range from "Advanced Functional Materials" at the University of Augsburg to "World Heritage Studies" at the Technical University in Cottbus.

Many of these modularised degree courses also have an international component to them. In 1 in 5 courses, spending time abroad is part of the course, and almost all degree courses are graded according to the internationally recognised credit point system.

This means that all the new qualifications can be compared not only nationally, but also internationally - which means that changing to a university in another country will be easier and more attractive.

In addition, there will be a greater focus on the job market in the new B.A. and M.A. degree courses. Potential employers are actually actively involved in around two-thirds of the courses. Students can, of course, also get in touch with companies by doing work placements or when carrying out fieldwork.

Many universities also offer European degree courses. In such programmes the students spend at least two semesters at the respective partner university abroad. This means that it's possible to get a double qualification at the end.

Of course, foreign students can study in Germany for one or two semesters. There are some 19,000 exchange programmes between German universities and universities abroad.

Cooperation agreements between these universities mean that the grades acquired while abroad are acknowledged by the home university. These exchanges are very popular with students, researchers and lecturers alike.
