I was wondering whether how English A levels are accepted by German universities and so which ones would be realistic. Is there anyone who is determined to do this also and what are they doing or have been doing towards this; I am in year 12. My German is not perfect, so info on where does English courses also would be useful. Thanks

What A levels are you doing? What are the entry requirements, do you know? Do you speak German?

Is GCSE German enough, I thought foreign students had to be b3 in German, which is basically fluent. Or are there courses in English?

I did consider a German university before discovering they were private and the fees were about £20k/yr (whoops)

Eunicas are a good place to start searching, and I visited a Student World fair for more information. They both focus on foreign universities that teach in English.

No German unis do courses in English so there isn't really a language barrier

This website: http://www.gooverseas.com/blog/8-bes...ional-students

suggests that courses taught in English are not specific to particular universities - instead you need to check whether a subject at a particular university is taught in German or in English. There is a link at the end of that webpage to some more detailed information.

I have previously been told that particular university subjects at German universities may require particular A-levels and GCSEs to have been studied previously, so that is another area to check carefully.

Had you seen this link previously?

Why make University harder for yourself by having to learn German on top of course material?

Do some people just like being under unbearable pressure?

Do you mean you want to do a course in German with GCSE German?

This page on their website seems to say that they do, some if few English courses and that all exchange students must be at B1 German, which I think might be about an A* at GCSE but I think you aught to have a look

Which country are you looking at now for uni?

I've been researching Dutch unis but I'm finding it tricky to find the difficulty level. In the UK you just look at the entry requirements but in Holland- they only requirement is to pass your high school exams..

What did you get at GCSE? As I say, I think B1 might just be an A*, but I think its suspiciously low, as I have seen other universities who are B3. You'd be able to self-teach B1 quite easily

'I was wondering'. Oh, so you're not wondering anymore? If so, this thread is no longer relevant, but if you are still wondering, you should use 'I am wondering' or even 'I've been wondering'.

My advice: Learn English before attempting to learn another language.

I don't know about an A in German, are you learning German now, if so investigate language requirements and I don't fully understand the B1 thing (it sounds to good to be true)

Are you sure? 'I have been wondering' means not any more, like I have wondered. May be wrong

I'm not sure, but surely 'I was wondering' is completely wrong because it implies that you were wondering in the distant past, and aren't 'wondering' in the present unless you state that 'I am wondering'.
