Bachelor degree at HfMT Köln
You cannot enter a German university after the 11th grade, because schooling there lasts longer than 11 years. First, you need to eliminate the academic difference. To do this, foreign students go through a preparatory year in special educational institutions — Studienkollegs.
The campus of HfMT Köln is located in Koeln. The urban campus is suitable for those students who, firstly, are used to independence, and secondly, cannot imagine their life without the hustle and bustle of a big metropolis.
The university has a library where students can do their homework, write scientific papers or just read interesting books. The university cares about the physical health of students, so it provides a number of athletic opportunities: sports grounds and various clubs.
What to do after graduation
It is possible to stay in Germany for an additional 18 months after graduation. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work without providing an offer from an employer. Look for more immigration options in our article.
