Living in Germany

Both Munich and Berlin have a big parade and Irish pubs all across the country will host St. Patrick's Day parties. Click the link below for a handy guide.

Student Housing
Finding Accommodation in Germany

Students in Germany either live in a student hall of residence or a private accomodation. Use the link below for an accomodation finder to help you find information about various student residencies in your German university town. You can also use the tool to submit an application for a room in a student residence.

Application Tip #35
Do I have to have contacts in Germany when I apply for funding?

Yes, if you are carrying out individual research in Germany or – in artistic subjects – wish to continue your education individually, you need an invitation from a German supervisor.
If you are participating in a structured study or doctoral degree program, you only need to provide information about your chosen program. 

Fun Fact
Did you know that...

...that Berlin has more bridges than Venice? Over 1,100 bridges help people, cars and trains cross over the multitude of Berlin's waterways.
