Why should you study at Lancaster University Leipzig?

There are many universities in Germany to choose from, but there is only one Lancaster University where you earn a UK degree while studying in Germany. We put together a short list with some good reasons why students choose to study with us;

  • Small class sizes with personalised attention - yes, your professor knows you by your name!
  • You earn one of the best UK degrees with international recognition and apply for postgraduate programmes in Germany or anywhere else in the world.
  • Leipzig is an attractive and vibrant city for students with low living cost - our student ambassadors will be happy to guide your around the city.
  • Benefit from our industry connections with global brands, local companies and NGOs.

Don't worry if you don't speak German

You do not need German for entry into Lancaster University Leipzig (you do need to prove your English level as part of your application) and it's easy to navigate your way around the city with little knowledge of the German language. We do recommend that students learn basic German language skills, and the staff at Lancaster University Leipzig will support you to do this, through language classes. This is an opportunity to add additional language skills to your CV, which is always attractive to future employers.
