After school: Off to Germany! After school: Off to Germany!

Study in GermanyMany know directly at the school, not yet whether they want to study and if so, what. Fortunately, there are other ways to gain experience, improve your language skills and find out what you want.
For example, language courses are an option, which in some cases are also important for studying in Germany later - the perfect combination.

If you already know that you want to take a break between school and university, you can also go to Germany as an au pair. Special au-pair agencies arrange and organize your stay and are your contact person during your stay.
Being an au-pair has many advantages - you not only learn the language, you also dive deeply into the culture and learn to take responsibility. Afterwards the decision for your future will be much easier.
Learn more about the different possibilities under After School to Germany or Language Students.
