The Master and More Fair in Hamburg

We participated in the master study fair called Master and More in Hamburg, Germany in December 2019 and we will be there also this year. We will be there to answer various questions about us and our programs, and give the opportunity to visitors to receive face-to-face counselling from our study advisors. We look forward to seeing you there!

Cooperation with Germany

USBE has had cooperation with Germany for over 25 years, where many students have participated in educational exchange to mutual enjoyment. Currently USBE have four partner universities in Germany: Julius-Maximilians Universität Würzburg, Universität Mannheim, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and University of Münster.

Master programme portfolio in English

We offer a number of Master’s programmes completely in English.

There are many advantages of studying at USBE and for EU/EEA and Switzerland citizens, in addition to receiving a high-quality education one is that there are no tuition fees. Further, German students do not need to take the TOEFL test. (Remember also as a German student you can get Auslands-BAföG for studying abroad on Master level).

This sounds interesting! What do I do?
