These programmes are designed with international students in mind...
Thanks to its high-standard of education, Germany has become an increasingly prominent study destination for students from all over the world. In addition, it is home to world-famous companies like BMW, ALDI and Siemens. Since Germany is the origin of such global enterprises, German has emerged an important business language. This has urged more and more students to learn the language and pursue higher education with a German institution.
If you are interested in studying in Germany and intend to do so at a state university or Studienkolleg, you can obtain proficiency in the language with the help of University Pathway Programmes.
