Study in Berlin-Potsdam

The dynamic German capital is one of the most popular destinations to study for international students, and GISMA Business School now has two campuses within the region.

Berlin-Potsdam

The Berlin-Potsdam area, which is known for technological innovation, economic growth, a unique culture, and a high standard of living, is where our two main campuses are located. It is one of the most popular destinations to study for international students.

 

Student life in the Berlin-Potsdam area

As a student in the Berlin-Potsdam area, you’ll be one of the 3.4 million inhabitants in this area, including 150,000 fellow students, of which 15% are from abroad. With a thriving economy, and exceptionally high quality of life score, Germany remains the number 1 choice for international students in Europe. As a country built on manufacturing, Germany is now expanding its horizons and becoming just as well known for finance, tech, and innovation – bringing with it a talent pool and exceptional employers. International students are warmly welcomed in Germany, not only due to English being a widely spoken language and diverse population, but also because of the popular 18-month post study visa available for non-EU students

 

Gisma - Business School

Berlin, the capital of Germany, has seen a huge resurgence in popularity over the last 30 years, whilst maintaining its cool-status and affordable price tag. The largest city in the EU is now considered the start-up capital of Europe and is also home to some of the largest national and international companies in Germany, making Berlin a popular destination for students looking to live and work in Germany after their studies. However, Berlin is also famous for its freizeit (free-time) options – whether it is an all-night party at a club, exploring historical sights, or relaxing at one of the city’s 43 lakes or 2,500 public parks.

Gisma - Business School

Potsdam, the culture-rich capital of Brandenburg, is located just outside of Berlin. It’s known for its booming economy and abundance of leisure activities. Students benefit from being close to international giants such as Tesla and SAP, and they can relax in their study breaks by enjoying the scenic forests, lakes, and castles in Potsdam. It takes only about 20 minutes to get from Potsdam to central Berlin and it is also directly connected to BER airport so that students living in Potsdam can get the best of both worlds.
