Universities and Programmes


Every degree programme furnishes 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. German universities offer degree programmes that fit every wish and level of education.

Depending on where you are in your academic orbit, German universities offer you the following options:
  • Commence a bachelor's programme as a first-time student (undergraduate study).
  • Complete several semesters of study abroad as part of your degree programme in your home country.
  • Enlist in a graduate programme after receiving your undergraduate degree.
  • Earn your doctorate.


You can earn the following academic degrees at German universities:
Bachelor's (B.A., B.Sc., Bachelor of Engineering, etc.)

The bachelor's degree is a first-level university qualification which is accepted on the international labor market. In a bachelor's degree programme, you learn the basics of a specific subject in six to eight semesters. Once you've completed the programme, you can either start your professional career or continue studying for the next higher degree: the master's degree.

Master's (M.A., M.Sc., Master of Engineering, etc.)

The master's degree is the second-level university qualification offered at German universities. A master's programme, which takes another two to four semesters, permits you to expand or enhance the knowledge you've already gained. Once you've earned your master's degree, you can enter professional life or continue studying to earn the next higher academic degree: the doctorate. The requirement for gaining admission to a master's degree programme is that you have successfully completed a bachelor's programme (or another programme at an equivalent level).


In Germany you can study at universities, universities of applied sciences and colleges of art, film and music. Choosing the suitable type of university largely comes down to what you would like to study. The quality of instruction, however, is comparably high at all institutions of higher education.

There are 427 state certified universities in some 180 towns and cities around Germany. Together, these universities offer a total of over 18,000 degree programmes.


Education in Germany is not centrally monitored. Each of the 16 states is permitted to issue its own university management and protocols. German universities operate a great deal of independence. For this reason, rules do not always apply to all universities in the same way. Therefore, we suggest inquiring about the specific requirements at the university of your choice before you apply.


Choosing the right type of university largely rely up on what you want to study.
There are three types of higher education institutions in Germany:
  • Universities
  • Universities of applied sciences
  • Colleges of art, film and music

Universities offer strong analytical and academically-oriented degree programmes and a wide range of disciplines. Some universities have specialized in certain subject areas, for example, technical universities, medical schools and colleges of education. If you would like to pursue a doctorate (earn a PhD) at some point, a university is the right place for you.


Instruction at universities of applied sciences is fully practice-oriented. The course work provides the analytical background and prepares students for the real-world requirements of professional life. Internships and practical semesters form an essential part of the degree programmes.


Colleges of art, film and music provides knowledge in artistic subjects, such as Fine Arts, Acting, Dance, Industrial and Fashion Design, Graphic Art, Instrumental Music and Singing. Students enrolled at colleges for modern media get skilled to become directors, camera operators, screenwriters and film and television professionals. To get admission to such programmes, you have to demonstrate special artistic talent, normally by means of an aptitude test. There are also peculiar admission requirements for these colleges. Please note that most art, film and music colleges only provide instruction in German.
