Germany is quality!

German quality is internationally recognized in the educational and professional spheres. A German degree will certainly improve a lot the curriculum of anyinternational student and increase a lot their employment perspectives.

There are also many opportunities for international students to write their thesis or work part-time in German companies during their studies or after that.

Germany is not expensive!

Manyinternational students don’t know, but Germany has one of the cheapest educational systems in Europe. Most universities do not charge a tuition fee, or only charge an administrative contribution fee that varies from 100 to 400 euros per semester. Heilbronn University, for example, charges only a semester fee of ca. 103€. That means that the whole International Tourism Management Master Programme would cost only ca. 309€.

Renting a room in a shared student apartment usually costs between 180€ and 290€ per month. For many students, the cost of doing a Master’s Degree in Germany can be even cheaper than in their home countries.

Language is NOT a problem!

Germany also offers many options for students who don’t speak German. The International Tourism Management Master Programme in the University of Heilbronn is one example. The classes are held 100% in English and the application does not require any level of the German language.

While out and about, especially in bigger cities, it is also very common to find people who can speak English and are open to help foreign people.

Besides all that, Heilbronn University also offers free German language classes for all students. That is a very good opportunity to learn – and practice – a new language if desired.
