Managing Your Academic Schedule and Workload

Source: RFF /

Part of the fun of going abroad is getting to know a different culture, and that means new food, entertainment, social conventions—and academic culture, too!

At Germany universities, we have a long tradition of placing great emphasis on independent work and independent thinking. This system is so effective that other countries—such as the United States and Japan—have used it as a model for their own education systems. If you would like to learn more about university types in Germany, titles and degrees, and many other things, the Study in Bavaria website is a great resource!
