Germany's Heidel berg University introduces grad courses in English

Posted By:

Germany's oldest university, Heidel berg University, is introducing new graduate programmes in English.

It currently offers nearly 170 programmes at different levels, many of which are taught in German. However, most PhD programmes are delivered in English, drawing hordes of non-German speakers.

Nearly 305 foreign students received their PhDs from the university in 2013.

"Given that a large population of doctoral students comes from a non-German background, we are trying to deliver as many programmes as possible in English," said Beatrix Busse, pro-vice-chancellor, Heidelberg University.
