When it comes to learning German, there’s really no place better than the capital city of Germany: Berlin. Since our Alpadia school is based in one the best-connected areas in the city, your students will get to learn in the epicenter of German culture and business, thus allowing them to really immerse themselves in local traditions and, of course, the language. 

When your students learn with Alpadia, we do our best to ensure that they have a well-rounded experience; this not only includes first-rate language classes hosted by our accredited teachers, but also sightseeing, meeting new friends, and making memories to last a lifetime. Luckily, when it comes to having an out-of-this-world study adventure, there are few places better than Berlin, and in case you need convincing, here are just some of the reasons why: 


1 Excellent academic options 

Germany is home to some of the best universities and colleges in Europe, with many of these being based in the capital. Since Berlin is also known for being home to many businesses that are industry leaders in science and technology, students and workers from around the world flock to the city so that they can be part of these thriving sectors. But that’s not the only thing they flock for – public universities are also free for all students, even non-EU residents. Bargain!  

If your students want to pursue Higher Education in Germany after their Alpadia language course, then we can help! With our Academic Pathways program, we help every step of the way to give your students the best chance of success. 


2 Great career prospects 

A big part of why so many people want to study in Germany is because of what happens after you graduate – once you graduate from a German university, all students get an 18-month job seekers visa, which gives most plenty of time to find a good job and settle into their new lives. 

But even if your students don’t go on to study long-term in Germany, improving their German skills does give them a great chance of moving to the country and getting a job later. Germany has an open job market to help facilitate the migration of skilled workers and specialists from around the world. Once a job is secured, workers receive multiple benefits and flexible work hours, so it’s no wonder that so many professionals want to work there.  

If your students want to enter the German workforce after their language course with Alpadia, we can help with our Career Pathway program.  


3 Vibrant student culture 

Since the city is so popular with students, Berlin has an exciting student culture. Your students will have the chance to meet and socialize with many different types of students from around the world, giving them the opportunity to not only meet other students from their home country but also learn and discover new cultures. They’ll also benefit from student-centered events and club nights that encourage new connections and fun experiences. This will be one adventure your students won’t forget! 


4 International City 

Since Germany has an open job market, the city is full of professional internationals looking for a good time. Your students will not feel alone when they study here, in fact, they might very well feel at home given the different worldwide communities – as a result, students are always welcomed and enjoy networking events to help make them feel connected and comfortable in their new residence. 


5 Iconic attractions 

Finally, one of the biggest advantages of studying in Berlin is that your students will get to explore one of the most iconic cities in Europe. With so much of the country’s recent history centered in the capital, the historical landmarks are numerous and include the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, the Reichstag Building, the Holocaust Memorial, and even some intact sections of the famous Berlin Wall. 

However, if your students fancy a night out or would prefer an excursion that’s not so history-heavy, then they can also enjoy the Berlin Zoo, visit one of the many art galleries, or even sample some of the famous techno raves that the city has become renowned for. We promise they won’t be short of things to do! 



Berlin is a fascinating and diverse city, and there are few places better for students looking to both improve their German skills and have a cultural adventure – discover Alpadia’s German schools here and give your students the gift of a lifetime today!
