Weltoffene Hochschulen gegen Fremdenfeindlichkeit


For those who have already decided to go to university and are perhaps already considering one or more degree courses, it is advisable to compare the courses offered by the various universities. As a rule, the degree programs have individual profiles whose differences are not always apparent at first glance.

You need to consider the following:

  • What is the object and profile of the degree course? How is the course structured?
  • Does the course correspond to the your aptitude, abilities and interests, and to what extent did you acquire the necessary qualifications through their main subjects at school?
  • Is the prior knowledge which you acquired at school, e.g. in mathematics or foreign languages, sufficient for your chosen field of study? Does the university offer pre-study courses to prepare students for their studies?
  • What admission requirements must be met?
  • What qualification can be obtained in this degree program? Is it possible to do a Master's degree after completing the course?
  • What qualifications are there and what professional areas can graduates work in? What are the prospects on the national and international job markets?
  • Does the course offer enough practical relevance for the future profession (e.g. course contents, practical semesters, compulsory work placements, cooperation with industry and/or other institutions)?
  • Are there opportunities for a stay abroad during the degree course (semester abroad, partner universities)?
  • Can the course be combined with other subjects?
  • What equipment and facilities does the university have? Does it have modern laboratories and workshops, do all students have enough space in lecture halls and seminar rooms, and what is the ratio of teaching staff to students?
  • Are there opportunities to acquire additional skills, such as foreign languages or work methods, alongside your studies?
  • What do the university town and its surroundings offer in terms of housing, culture and leisure? How well is the university location connected in terms of transport?
  • What costs are involved and how can you finance your studies?

In addition to research on the university websites, it is recommended that you attend education fairs and talk to student advisors or academic advisors at the universities.

Furthermore, university open days or taster days, which most universities hold once a year, are a good way to talk to students and lecturers and get first-hand information.
