We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Germany isn’t nicknamed ‘the land of ideas’ for nothing. A Masters in Germany means studying in one of the most successful, popular and affordable university systems in Europe.
German Masters degrees reflect the intellectual prestige of a higher education system stretching back hundreds of years (and associated with some of the most important thinkers in European science and philosophy). Today the country is equally renowned for its modern research facilities, many of which offer innovative postgraduate training programmes in partnership with German universities.
You'll also have plenty to do whilst taking a break from your studies. From historic cities to beautiful landscapes like the Rhine Valley and the Black Forest, Germany has lots to offer international students looking for a study abroad adventure.
Germany is the fifth most popular study destination in the world, with over 225,000 international students. Many of them are enrolled on Masters programmes and other postgraduate courses.
A Masters in Germany normally runs for two years, with the academic year lasting from the beginning of October to the end of the following September.
Most Masters degrees in Germany have no tuition fees, but do charge small administrative fees per semester. See our guide to Masters fees and funding in Germany for more information.
Masters degrees in Germany may be delivered in various languages as well as German. An increasing number of programmes are now offered in English.
EU and EEA students will not usually require a visa to study in Germany. However, you will need to register your presence with the authorities.
