Young Learner’s Courses

Those who wish to do Masters in Germany and make a career later on. 

Eligibility criteria’s are:

  • First Class in Bachelor’s Degree (>60%)
  • Minimum 180 credit points from Bachelors (If you have 180 ECTS from your bachelor’s but want to study a master’s with 210 ECTS required then oftentimes you can still get enrolled with the obligation to catch up on the 30 ECTS within the first 3 semesters of your master’s study).

In Germany the education is excellent and yet free of charge. In general the public universities have no tuition fees. Students just have to pay administrative costs per semester, which often include the semester ticket for train and bus travel in the city or state area. With a student ID one will receive discounts in many places, like shops (mostly special days are designated for students to receive discounts), leisure activities (like cinema, sports, museums etc.) or travel within Germany or in Europe.

There is a wide range of master courses, so candidates will surely find a course that matches their interests, be it with a practical approach or research oriented. Moreover, Germany suffers from a lack of manpower in many fields, foreign candidates with a good education and a solid command of German, are in high demand.

Overall Germany is an economically stable and also safe country.

In Germany, you can opt for masters taught in English as well as in German (via the MEP Program). In order to qualify for the direct English taught the student must have a very high percentage as well as the need to compete with many more other such aspirants. Few courses are offered in English in comparison to German taught masters. Also, to study an English based master leads to difficulties in finding an internship, thesis or jobs upon completion, as the (internal) communication in companies is in German.

German taught master’s program

There is a wide selection of German taught masters and many courses also fall under the non NC category. Meaning a lot more admission slots are available. To study masters one must prove enough German language skills (C1 Hochschule level). As language is the key to finding better internships or jobs as more companies would be interested in offering such positions. MEP prepares candidates to achieve this goal.

To answer it shortly: In most public Universities there are NO tuition fees, as they are publicly funded. But there are some administrative charges which could be anywhere between 0 to 500€ per semester. This includes mostly the ID card, the administration fees, the local transport etc.

Fees are charged mostly at private universities.
