Living in Germany - the best choice for you!


Germany is the third most popular destination among international students in the world. More than twelve percent of students at German universities come from abroad. Germany is an attractive place to study and German university degrees are highly respected by employers worldwide.

A diverse country in the heart of Europe!

Beaches and mountains, medieval city centres and pulsating metropolises, and above all, lots of nature. Germany is a diverse country with many facets! Living in Germany means living in the middle of Europe surrounded by many other countries. Whether you’d like to visit Paris, Prague, Rome or Copenhagen, you have a wide range of destinations at your doorstep. Within a couple of hours by train or plane, you can experience an entirely different culture and language. Weekend trips are no problem and affordable.

Affordable living expenses

Compared with other European countries, the cost of living in Germany is reasonable. The cost of food, rent, clothing and cultural activities are equivalent to the EU average. There are also a number of concessions available to students. You can receive reduced prices at theatres, museums, opera houses, cinemas, swimming pools and other institutions. All you have to do is present your student ID.

Learn a language which opens many doors!

German is one of the ten most spoken languages in the world. Some 185 million people worldwide can speak German. You can still study in Germany even if you don’t know German, but having some knowledge of the language can make everyday life easier and help you make friends faster. Knowing a foreign language also looks great on a résumé! Nobody says that German is an easy language, but there are many ways to learn German – in a course, with a tandem partner or with German flatmates.

You live in a safe country!

Germany is a very safe country. The police are reliable and help you in every situation. Whether you live in a big city or in the country, you can move freely day or night without having to take any special precautions.

Working as a Student in Germany

Working as a student is only possible once you finish the language course and - as a general rule - after the Studienkolleg. Once you are at university, you can legally work up to 20 hours per week.

Koblenz is at the heart of the Middle Rhine area and is within 1 hour from other major cities such as Frankfurt or Cologne. It has a population of roughly 110.000 people. Koblenz is the city where the rivers Rhine and Mosel meet. It is a major tourist area as it is at the center of the Rhine valley. Many tour ships stop here each day. The city is very safe and has many historical sites that are of interest. Just outside Koblenz are also many historical castles and other interesting sites.

Our students find Koblenz an ideal place to learn the language. The people are open and friendly and students make contacts very easily. Koblenz also has a major University and therefore many other German students live here. After your arrival in Koblenz, you will be able to discover the most beautiful places of the city thanks to a guided city tour organized by an ISL member of staff.
