Studying in Magdeburg

Magdeburg is a student city. There are plenty of reasons why students choose to study in Magdeburg, five of which are:

Optimal Size
The capital city of the German Land of Saxony-Anhalt is home to 240.000 residents and offers students a practically sized location that is not to large and anonymous that they lose their identity, but not to small that there is nothing to experiences.

Excellent for a Low Budget
Studying in Magdeburg doesn’t break the bank for number of reasons, for example thanks to the city’s low-priced flats in renovated old buildings or rooms in hall of residence located close to the university campuses. Students can also remain mobile on a budget by using a bicycle or student ticket for public transport. To top it off, they can also enjoy a welcome bonus of 160 Euros from the city if they register their accommodation in Magdeburg as their principal residence.

Ideal Study Conditions
Magdeburg offers their students the best conditions in the form of a super student to teacher ratio, state-of-the-art facilities, innovative courses and the guarantee that they will not have to pay any tuition fees. Both of the city’s universities boast close connections with renowned research institutions that offer students the opportunity to get involved in excellent research activities at the early stage by completing an internship.

Green Spaces and Water
Magdeburg is a green city and is known and loved for its multitude of parks and the meadows and banks of the river Elbe.

The Hasselbachplatz square in the south of the old city centre is home to an abundance of cafes and pubs and is above all a top location for student nightlife. Be it at former industrial sites, in old fortress buildings or at open air venues by the elbe , Magdeburg offers students plenty of opportunities to relax and enjoy their evenings after a day of studying.
