Germany is a well-established hub for international education enjoying worldwide reputation as high-tech location. The German higher education system is designed in the most unique way:

  •  There are different categories of Higher Education entities focusing on different aspects of education, universities with right to confer doctorates and habilitations. At these universities, it is important to have the scientifically right approach, which is less decisive at Universities of Applied Sciences.
  • Universities of applied sciences offer the same degrees as universities but often concentrate on an applied approach, they have a more practical profile with focus on employability. Their emphasis is on existing system and methods, the advantages and disadvantages and how to apply systems in practice.
  • Doctorates are possible only at (research) universities, undergraduate and graduate degrees of Bachelors and Masters are the same at both entities.
