    I am interested in studying a German Degree at University (or a joint Economics and German Degree), but wanted to know what the jump from A level German to Degree level German was like for non-native students? I would deem myself to be at a standard of getting an B at A level. Because of this, would it be recommended for me to take a German Degree .

    If it's a degree taught in English in the UK then it should be ok.

    If it's a degree taught in German in Germany (the economics part), then it may get much harder. You will have to understand the concepts and the german technical terms that go with them.

    It isnt just the course you should think about - Ist how you will cope socially. Not understanding the local language can be very isolating. 'Going to Uni' is emotionally testing for most people - just be aware of the added impact of being in an entirely new culture where you struggle to understand everyday chatter. Wouldn't a UK course with just a Study Abroad semester or year in Germany be a better option than an entire degree in Germany?
