Education in North America

Study opportunities in Canada and the United States

The study opportunities in North America are as diverse as the continent. The US university landscape alone consists of more than 4,000 universities. Many of them enjoy a very good reputation, which is repeatedly confirmed in the large international rankings. The reputation results above all from the high quality of the teaching and a pronounced service orientation. Each student is provided with a consultant, the administration runs smoothly and the professors are almost always approachable. The American university life is also a unique experience for German students. The typical American campus resembles a small town and offers everything you need for life from shopping, restaurants and various leisure activities. The opportunity to improve your English at a renowned university in the USA and to establish an international network there make the country one of the most popular study countries.

But Canada's universities also offer high-quality study programs that are highly practical. The country's bilingualism also enables students to improve their French skills in addition to English. Another advantage: A Bachelor's, Master's or PhD degree completed in the USA or Canada is recognized worldwide.

For those who only want to spend part of their studies in North America, there is the option to take part in a Study Abroad program or a summer session. These short-term study programs offer one advantage: the application process is greatly simplified. The summer sessions can also be completed during the German semester break and some are even open to high school students. A great option for anyone who wants to study in North America.

Mexico, Caribbean and Central America

The largest Caribbean island nation, Cuba, is the only country in North America that is run as a socialist economy. Despite an ongoing economic crisis, the small country impresses with its white sandy beaches, the romantic capital Havana and an incomparable Caribbean lifestyle. Mexico, located directly south of the USA, also scores with its dream beaches. Located between the Pacific and the Caribbean, the country boasts 10,000 kilometers of coastline, tropical rainforests, smoking volcanoes, cactus-strewn deserts and a culture that is thousands of years old. The southernmost countries in North America are the Central American states of Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. They are endowed with Pacific and Caribbean beaches, green rainforests and an incredible biodiversity. We would have thought that studying in North America offers such diversity.

Study opportunities in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America

If you want to get to know the cultural heritage of the Maya and Aztecs while studying abroad, you are in good hands in Mexico.

In Cuba, Costa Rica or Guatemala, various private language schools offer courses that enable students to improve their Spanish in a dreamlike, tropical environment.
