Accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses are all things to consider before applying to university.
Schooling in Germany lasts longer than in other countries. Therefore, it is impossible to enter a university immediately after the 11th grade — first, you need to eliminate the academic difference. There are special educational institutions for foreign students — Studienkollegs.
Master's degree at RWTH
It is impossible to enter RWTH for a master's program without confirming knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum TOEFL score for admission is 90. IELTS — 5.5 or higher.
The campus of RWTH is located in Aachen. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. University students have access to the library. It contains a collection of scientific papers, textbooks and fiction. RWTH accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
To stay in Germany after graduation for another 18 months, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work without an offer from an employer. Graduates of RWTH are in demand in the labor market, as the reputation of the educational institution among employers is quite high according to the results of the QS world ranking.
