Learn more about the German higher education system, the different types of universities and the degrees they offer.
Every degree programme provides students with a certain level of academic qualification. When you choose a degree programme, you don’t only choose a subject of study. You’re also deciding on the degree you’d like to earn.
In Germany you can study at universities, universities of applied sciences and colleges of art, film and music. Universities are also divided into private and publicly funded institutions.
"The teaching system at university is different than what I was used to in Palestine. Here students have to learn to take responsibility for themselves. There’s only one examination at the end of the semester. For me, the first exam phase was a little difficult because I didn’t know exactly how to revise for it." (Anas Abdelrazeq from Palestine is PhD student at the RWTH Aachen.)
