High standard in Germany

High school in Germany

Germany is the largest country in the EU in terms of population. It’s also the European Union’s biggest economy, which you will notice by the high standards of living. This modern, cosmopolitan country is a centre for technology and innovation. It attracts people from all over the world with a varied cultural scene and a certain love for concerts and festivals.

Think big

This big nation truly has it all. From beautiful scenery and cozy villages to modern cities and charming Christmas markets. The mixture of old and ultra modern is exciting in cities like Berlin, Hamburg and Köln. In the area around Munich, you’ll find dream-like castles.

If you want to think big for your high school exchange, think Germany!

Area and City Choice

If you have a particular destination in mind for your time in Germany, be sure to ask for an area choice in your application. You can choose one of three regions (North, South or Bavaria) or select a specific city, either Munich or Hamburg. The earlier you apply, the higher your chances are of securing your first-choice location, so don't delay! Submit your application as soon as possible, and keep in mind that a fee will apply if you end up at your chosen location.
