University Fairs

Hüttermann / DAAD

This is where interested foreign students can talk to German universities and research organisations directly. Personal meetings have their benefits.

International university fairs are a good opportunity for international students to familiarise themselves with the educational and university landscape in Germany. Universities introduce themselves and their course offers and provide an insight into the objectives, content and methods of individual subjects. University fairs also give you the opportunity to communicate with students, lecturers and professors directly. Personal discussions give you the chance to clarify specific questions on admission requirements, courses or degrees, which the Internet alone cannot explain.
