A bachelor’s degree is the first academic qualification which is recognised on the international job market all over the world. Depending on the course you choose, this is completed over the course of six to eight semesters. Once a bachelor’s degree has been completed, it is possible to study a master’s degree over two to four semesters. There are many courses of study in English, for both bachelor’s and master’s degrees. German master’s degrees are also recognised all over the world.
