Germany: an exceptional university system
Organisation of studies
First of all, it is good to know that in Germany self discipline and personal initiative are of utmost importance in university life.
The young student is not only expected to be hardworking in class, but also he should have supplementary competence that will facilitate his integration and lead him to success in his studies. Intercultural competence, computer and internet knowledge are very important for studies and daily life in Germany.
Generally, the Bachelor lasts 6 semesters, the Masters 4 semesters and the Doctorate 6 semesters.
