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.

|Public University||Private University|
|No study fees, just general administration fees (mostly semester ticket i.e. local travel in Bus, Tram or Train is already included)||Study fees, starting approx. from 2000,00€ per semester, depending on the course and the University|
|More attractive to majority of people, leading to fuller classrooms and more students capacity||Smaller numbers of students which allows individual mentoring and support|
|Offer a wide variety of subjects to study, sometimes up to 150 courses per university||Smaller curriculum, mostly specialized in specific fields and currently in trend courseworks|
Typically focus on a theoretical approach regarding their teaching and study content.
In recent years though more and more practical training has been included in the itinerary. Nevertheless, students still have to plan practical experiences (Internship, Thesis etc.) by themselves in many cases.
|Commonly well connected to industries and companies and have a more practical approach in their studies & better career opportunities|
To sum it up: There is no right or wrong when choosing the type of university. See what fits your needs and interests best. With degrees from either university you will have good chances to find a good job afterwards
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.
You can apply for the MEP and mostly the work experience is an added advantage. Some Universities also take relevant work experience into account for Credit point calculations.
