Germany’s higher education institutions are split into three main types; Universität (university), Fachhochschule (university of applied sciences) and Kunstschulen, Musikhochschulen, or Filmschulen (colleges of art, music, or film). Thousands of programmes are offered, meaning there will be a course for everyone. Whilst many of the institution types offer similar courses, their focuses are slightly different. Universitäts generally focus on research-driven programmes, where Germany also offers a wide range of unusual degrees including Aerial Archaeology, which studies the history of the earth from a bird’s eye view. Another example is Bionics, which teaches students to imitate nature as closely as possible, fusing technology, biology and engineeringas Fachhochschule offer a more practical approach to subjects.
