With the continued growth of Cambridge International AS & A Level, more students with Cambridge qualifications are applying to study at universities in Germany – from within Europe and beyond.
Germany is the world’s most popular non-Anglophone study destination, and the fourth most popular overall – only the US, UK and Australia welcome more international students each year. In September 2014, Germany abolished university tuition fees for all applicants making Germany an especially attractive destination country for undergraduates.
Following visits to universities in the Cologne/Bonn area, we are pleased to report that all the institutions with which we met have now issued us with formal statements of recognition for Cambridge International AS & A Levels, and our other post-16 qualification, Cambridge Pre-U. Visits to other parts of Germany are now being planned.
German universities welcoming Cambridge qualifications include: Cologne Business School; Hochschule Dusseldorf; Rhein-Waal University of Applied Sciences; RWTH Aachen University; TH Koln University of Applied Sciences; The University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg; University of Cologne, and Freie Universität Berlin.
