Germany Grad Fair 2021 - How to Build Your International Career

March 26, 2021, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EST

Planning to pursue a graduate degree abroad can seem overwhelming. This event is designed to help you navigate the process, from finding the right program and university to understanding the requirements and application process.

Germany is a popular destination for American students seeking to pursue a graduate degree abroad. With many tuition-free, English-taught graduate programs, German universities offer top-class degrees that are highly respected by employers worldwide. This fair introduces a wide range of graduate opportunities in all subject fields ranging from master’s programs, doctoral programs, and fast-track programs integrating master’s and PhD training at several of Germany’s respected universities and universities of applied sciences.

We will also address other aspects of studying in Germany, such as cost of living, visa and residence permits, health insurance, accommodation, and student jobs. There will be plenty of opportunities to meet representatives from various German universities, funding agencies, and partner organizations.

You should attend if you are: an undergraduate or a graduate student, young professional, career service advisor or someone who is interested in graduate studies in Germany!
