Five Good Reasons to Choose Brandenburg University (Information for Parents)

There are certainly several good reasons to study at Brandenburg University. We give you the most important ones.
And why should your child study in Germany in the first place? The German Academic Exchange Service tries to answer this question in a little brochure.

Quality "Made in Germany"

Our course catalogue includes established classics such as Business Administration, Business and Information Systems Engineering or Mechanical Engineering next to pioneering programs such as Security Management or Medical Informatics. Whatever their choice is, our students always learn in perfectly equipped classrooms and laboratories and they always enjoy project- and practical-oriented studies.
All our programs are internationally recognized bachelor’s or master’s degree courses and are acknowledged by official agencies, so that we can guarantee a high quality of education.
Individual support of each student is as important to us as the happiness of our students. Accordingly, the CHE University Ranking certifies first-class study conditions and an excellent reputation of departments and professors at Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences.

No Tuition

Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences does not charge any tuition. Students pay only the semester fee to get a student ID, which also is the semester ticket for public transportation in Berlin and Brandenburg.
With this ID, students receive many benefits in Germany. A lunch in our cafeteria for example costs 1.90 - 3.50 EUR. In most public institutions such as museums and theaters students pay less, and many things – e.g. an account with the bank, a contract for the mobile phone or a notebook - are often offered for less. In addition, students have health insurance for around 100 EUR per month.

Successful After Graduation

In almost all programs internships are a requirement, so that our students are not only professionally ahead after graduation, but they also come up with first work experience. In addition, Brandenburg University offers application training and other career-oriented events especially for international students to make the transition to working life easier.
For internships and often even for the first job we have strong partners in industry and commerce.

High Quality of Life

In European comparison Germany is a very safe country. Accordingly, people in the city and on the countryside move around freely and without special precautions. German police have a good reputation and can be reached from anywhere in the country with the toll-free emergency number 110. Help mostly arrives within a very short time.
In addition, almost every country has a diplomatic mission in Germany, so that any problems are quickly resolved.
The health system in Germany with its high density of physicians is one of the best in the world. Should your child require medical care, it would be in very good hands.

"Opting for a not-too-big university has clearly proven to me that I was right. Study-related questions and advice: THB staffs are always there. Not sure with anything because you are an international student? No worries- Mrs. Wolff from International Office is always by your side. Subject-related questions or problems? Meet the professors and lecturers, most of the time one-to-one & face-to-face consultations in their offices (I have really experienced a lot!). One-to-one sessions with professors in larger universities? Trust me, it will be very difficult." Ray Man N., Industrial Engineering, Malaysia
