congrats to germany

anonymous asked:

Congrats on getting into your school! That's really exciting ^-^. Would you mind sharing a little about the process? I'm trying to do the same thing, but in Germany and I am having a horrible time getting everything together... I know it might be different from what I have to do, but it would be nice to get an idea of what you had to do and see if that can help me get my feet on the ground, instead of rolling around like a useless pumpkin... Thank you!

Thank you! The process in Sweden is centralised and therefore a lot easier than in Germany, where you usually have to apply at every university separately (there are some exceptions like medicine).

The first thing you should do is check if you are qualified to study in Germany at all. Here for example are the requirements for studying at the TU Dresden (my local university). All universities will require a highschool diploma equivalent to the German Abitur, and I think most will require you to have a decent grasp of German.

Then you have to decide what and where you want to study. You can apply to as many universities as you want. Do you already know where you want to go? Big city, small town? If you have no idea yet, I’d suggest just browsing on Wikipedia or even Google Maps for a while, look at different university towns and see what you like. Then googling the name of the town + university should give you their official homepage where you will find all the information you need to apply - more often than not they will have an English version of their homepage.

I’m currently busy with everything that happens after you’ve been admitted - finding a place to live, getting health insurance sorted out, organising the move, etc… But that all depends on what university you choose and whether or not you’re a EU resident.

I’ve found two sites about studying in Germany here and here, I hope those can help you a little more.

Good luck!
