There are a lot of programs offered in English, especially in larger cities. My studies are in English and most of my international colleagues came to study here without any previous knowledge of German. Professors at chemistry department give lectures in English even if there is just one foreign student in the room. However, German language courses are compulsory for us and they are also fully financially covered. Germans like it when you speak German. Also, I say this to everyone I talk to here, if you want to stay in Germany after you finish your studies, learn the language. Besides certain jobs in high demand, it’s really hard to get a job without knowing the language. Especially if you’ve lived here for a year or two and can’t offer more than basic supermarket-level vocabulary. This is a sign to a future employer that your interest in their culture and people is low. So why expect more from you as a team member? Language courses at university are usually either free or suuuper cheap. It’s also a great way to meet new people. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Virgie Dew 1 Question 2 Answers 0 Best Answers 25 Points View Profile Virgie Dew 2021-02-24T11:16:20+01:00Added an answer on February 24, 2021 at 11:16 am It is possible to study in Germany without knowing German, there are few universities offers few courses entirely in English but many of them are paid course and expensive compare to studying in German. So if your plan is to return home or move to English speaking country, after finishing your course then study in English, if you would like to do internship there or find a good job for some better experience then it’s always advisable to study in German. Because language is important in most of the European countries wherever you want to live and work. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
