The International School OWL offers many advantages. With the German Baccalaureate (International Advanced Levels – IAL), foreign students can start studying at universities in Germany and in many other countries without having to visit a so-called Studienkolleg (Foundation College). The German Baccalaureate already meets the entry requirements for beginning a Bachelor course of study.
The German university system enjoys a high reputation and offers first class research and teaching. Most German universities are state-owned, and one advantage is that they only charge a small semester fee. In most cases, this is around 300 € per semester. At many universities, this fee already includes a so-called semester ticket. With this ticket, students can use public transport (buses and trains) for trips to many well-known cities like Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Bochum, or Cologne. So not only the way to the university is already included, but also trips to sights and other German cities are possible.
In summary, the combination of the International School OWL and a Bachelor’s / Master’s degree programme in Germany is a cost-effective alternative that guarantees a first-class education!
