Updated: Nov 22, 2023


Life of a Student in Germany

Many students from India, as well as other international students, want to pursue their higher studies in Germany. Although many students would like to study in Germanythey are a bit enthusiastic as they are not sure about what kind of life it is going to be like for students in Germany.

Taking the decision to study in Germany can be a life-changing and truly great experience for many students, but studying in Germany can be quite different from the experience of studying in India. Let’s take a look at some of the things that make studying in Germany such a unique experience for many students.


Life at Germany Campus University

The major thing that makes a difference between studying in German universities from others is that they build their universities like a city or village themselves. The university campuses in Germany are really awesome built in a separate section just outside the town in which they are housed, which are different from universities in India, where they are built right in the center of the city. Many universities in Germany provide both dormitories as well as on-campus rental apartments for the benefit of students. These dormitories can be a source for forming communities and a great place to interact with your fellow students. Studying in Germany is one of the best decisions.


Social Life at University

Students, who pursue their studies in Germany, will have a plethora of opportunities to build their network and socialize with their peers. During weekends most of the universities are organizing various kinds of events such as a farmer’s market or a bazaar etc. A number of university villages have pubs and a vibrant nightlife, which is open to students who are over 21 years of age. Along with pubs and bars, there are a number of things students can get involved in during a stint at the university. Students can join a club they are interested in or volunteer at a local charity or take up a sport that they are interested in. It is best to take part in some kind of social activity while you study at a German university, as these can not only help you deal with homesickness effectively but also help you to build friendships and associations that will stand you in good stead throughout your life. And students enjoy their social life in various ways.

There are many types of clubs that students may encounter at their university such as

  1. Study groups

  2. Book or movie clubs

  3. Outdoor activities (surfing, rowing, cycling, hiking)

  4. Sports of various types (amateur to competitive levels)

Weekend Fun

Weekends are very interesting in Germany. As most of the students during weekends sit back and relax. And weekends are good for the students to get ready to go for the upcoming week. Overall, there are a lot of things for you to do, no matter what day of the week it is. There are also a number of festivals and sporting events that go on throughout the country. This is how studying in Germany makes your weekend funfilled.


Off-campus Activities

There are many events and activities that are constantly taking place in and around universities that students can participate in, from open-air movie screenings to concerts to fairs and festivals and many live shows – there is a vibrant or mixed culture in most cities and towns in Germany, especially in summer and spring.  Summer is the best time to enjoy camping and barbecuing with your friends. In spring you could check out the state fairs and also other local exhibitions. Winters can be a fun time for exploring winter wonderlands and Santa’s grottos not to mention exhibitions of gingerbread houses. There is something for everyone all year round in Germany, not surprising then that every year the list of students intending to study in Germany is increasing day by day.
