You can submit ceftified copies of your passport and keep it actually. I did it and many people I know did it (if you have to travel in between etc)
State theoretical universities create great scientists. Universities of applied science teach great applied knowledge. The majority of the applied science students I know started their business or became businessmen or joined big companies in management positions. It really depends what you want to do in the future and on your previous background
Yes you can travel to all countries but Ireland and UK. There you have to obtain visas separately but with relaxed conditions
Some universities request 180 ECTS Bachelor (3 years) some look for 210 or 240 ECTS Bachelor. It is mostly written in entry requirements per university. Do not forget, that in Germany studies are consecutive, it means that you need to have a similar Bachelor to be able to do Master in Computer Science. Some universities offer bridge semesters or pre-Masters as well.
Your degree must be accredited and recognized and it must be German. Then the story is the same. If your master is 2 years, then you need to work 3 years after. If your master is 1 year, you need to work 4 years after. It must be 5 years full time activity with minimum 24 months paying taxes full time 🙂
Yes nearly every big university offers MBA in the English language. My friends were considering TU. But you have to keep in mind, MBA is never free. MBA at many public schools may cost you even more than in private!
International medicine students have a very bright future in Germany. Foreign doctors are welcome in German hospitals, but only under very specific conditions. The doctors must prove that they possess the same knowledge of medicine as graduates of German universities.
Available jobs for doctors in Germany
30 years ago Germany experienced the „doctors’ flood“. At that time there were so many doctors in the country that new graduates could not find suitable jobs. This led to a complex development. As a result, there is a shortage of doctors in Germany now and the demand for foreign doctors in Germany is growing.
At this point, German hospitals are in shortage of thousands of doctors. This is especially noticeable outside the big cities. In the rural districts many practices have to close because the older doctors who retire cannot find successors.
Under such circumstances many active doctors are overwhelmed with responsibilities: to take care of more patients and provide more services, consequently their working hours are getting longer. They have less time for their families or for cultural events. Some of them prefer to go abroad or to apply for a job at another hospital as a result.
In addition, the population of Germany is getting older. The people who were born in the post-war years with their high birth rates increasingly need medical care. Doctors are getting older as well – and are retiring.
The German Hospital Institute (DKI) regularly conducts surveys in German hospitals and presents the results in the Hospital Barometer. For the year 2019, the DKI predicted a growing shortage of doctors.
According to the DKI, a representative survey of 450 hospitals in Germany showed that 5,500 full-time positions in hospitals cannot be filled at present. This corresponds to approximately 6,000 physicians or 4.1 percent of all positions.
The president of the German Medical Association Prof. Dr. Montgomery also refers to a lack of doctors. https://www.spiegel.de/gesundheit/diagnose/aerztemangel-frank-ulrich-montgomery-fordert-mehr-stellen-in-kliniken-a-1245358.html
This development means that foreign doctors are welcome in Germany. Initially, attempts were made to hire doctors from the EU countries, such as Romania, Poland, Spain or Greece. In the meantime, more and more doctors from Africa, Asia, South America, as well as from the lands of former USSR and former Yugoslavia are working in Germany. Attractive are the good remuneration and the good civil order in Germany, as well as a high level of the medical care.
How to become a doctor in Germany
Every doctor must be able to communicate with his or her patients and colleagues in the language understood by all. In Germany, this is the German language.
Foreign doctors have been coming to Germany increasingly since early 1990s. For a long time it was assumed that a reasonably good command of the German language was sufficient for these doctors. Over the years, however, evidence has accumulated to prove that this is not the case. In many instances it has been demonstrated, including in various court cases, that doctors not only have to be in particularly good command of the German language, but also that they need specialised language skills. If such knowledge is not given, then misunderstandings may occur, leading to health problems and in some cases even life-threatening situations for the patients.
This is why the 87th Conference of Health Ministers on 26/27.06.2014 has adopted a procedure for the verification of the required language skills. According to this, doctors must provide specialist language skills in a professional context based on language level C1. Proof of these language skills must be delivered by a professional language examination.
The test proceeds as follows:
1. Simulated doctor-patient conversation
Duration: 20 minutes
Duration: 20 minutes
3. Doctor to doctor conference
Duration: 20 minutes
There are four ways of becoming a doctor in Germany:
1. Checking the training programmes of the corresponding universities
However, this is a long and uncertain path.
2. Engaging a lawyer
In this case, however, the doctor must be prepared to pay the lawyer’s fees, and it is not uncommon for the knowledge test to be taken anyway.
3. Taking the knowledge test right away
For the doctors who have graduated a university within the EU, this examination is not necessary.
However, every doctor who has not attended school or graduated a university in Germany must prove his or her knowledge of the German language.
4. Taking school specializing for mandatory medical examinations to prepare for the knowledge test (majority of doctors choose this option)
It is longer, but often safer route because of the nature of the examinations. The medical language test is a prerequisite for the knowledge test. The requirements in both examinations, the knowledge test and the medical language test, are quite high.
• The knowledge of the general and medical language is tested separately. For the general language, a B2 level exam must be passed (TELC, Goethe-Institute certificate or alternative)
• The medical language examination (exam for medical terminology (FSP)) is either organised by a medical association or by TELC. It tests the ability to conduct an anamnesis interview with the patient, to present the case to other doctors and to write a doctor’s letter.
• The doctor must also behave correctly, e.g. show compassion to the patient. Also in stressful situations, the doctor must be able to exhibit a professional attitude.
Hello! The beauty is that Germany offers both Public and Private education. In German and in English languages. Free and paid. It all depends on the major, language, location and degree level you want to pursue. You can find a DAAD databank with scholarships and institutions and tuition ranges. But yes, you can study for free 😉 best of luck!
