Vocational training

What is vocationl traning ?

A popular German compromise, work-study courses offer placements at companies alongside academic modules, allowing students to earn money, gain experience, and hone their skills. Germany’s dual system of vocational education and training is highly recognized worldwide due to its combination of theory in the classroom and training in a real-life work environment. The dual system is firmly established in the German education system. The main characteristic of the dual system is cooperation between mainly small and medium sized companies, on the one hand, and publicly funded vocational schools, on the other. This cooperation is regulated by law. Trainees in the dual system typically spend part of each week at a vocational school and the other part at a company, or they may spend longer periods at each place before alternating. Dual training usually lasts two to three-and-a-half years.

Bachelers Visa

Bachelor’s degrees: Provide a foundation in academic or practical subjects, which is an essential launchpad for successful careers. Examples include Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degrees. Courses can be studies at purely academic universities, technical universities, or vocational schools, and take 3 years in most cases.

Masters Visa

Master’s degrees: Build upon the foundation provided by Bachelor’s degrees. Masters tend to be more closely linked to career progression, and follow the same division into Arts, Sciences, and Engineering. Like Bachelor’s, they are mainly free at public universities, and they tend to take 2 years to complete.Masters degrees from universities like Freiburg, Karlsruhe, Heidelberg, Berlin Technical University, Chemnitz, and Jacobs University are all internationally respected. And German engineering degrees will impress employers across the globe, no matter where you study for them.

General Information

Accomedation

Student accommodation in Germany

Whether you’re a domestic student moving to a new city or coming from abroad, if you don’t have family around where you’ll be studying, you will most probably be renting. You can go down one of two routes when you’re renting in Germany. You can either book a student dormitory (sometimes referred to as a hall or student residence) or rent privately. If you’re renting privately, you can either rent a room in a shared house or an entire apartment for yourself. It’s important you choose what’s right for you. Ask yourself two questions: what can you can reasonably afford? And what is going to give you the best postgraduate experience?

How much does it cost?

Since a flat share is a privately rented accommodation, the rent varies hugely depending on which city you are studying in. Cities like Berlin and Munich are more expensive, but you can expect to pay €363 per month, on average. Rent also depends on how many people are sharing the flat.

Economy

Economic activity in Germany is estimated to have contracted by 0.3% in 2023, as projected in autumn. Private consumption suffered from a loss in purchasing power. High building and borrowing costs on top of labour shortages and elevated energy prices depressed investment in construction and energy-intensive sectors.

Culture

Known as Deutschland in German, Germany has a population of approximately 84.6 million people. Germany is a federal parliamentary republic and comprises 16 federal states, each with its own distinct culture, traditions, and governance. The main language is German, and the dominant religion is Christianity. Germany’s capital is Berlin, but Hamburg, Munich, and Cologne are also among the biggest cities in Germany.
