Munich is a city which people from all over the world call home. Every year students from all over the world come to the city for their exchange year, for their third level studies, for internships or to work. Munich is open minded and embraces the enrichment of the cultures it unites. 

Munich is the capital of the German Bundesland Bavaria and it lies to the north of the beautiful Alp Mountains. With a population of around 1.3 million, Munich is Germany’s third largest city. The city combines tradition and progressiveness, high-tech and culture, and a German and international population. These are just some of the reasons why Germany’s southernmost city attracts so many young people, students and professionals from all over the world.

Studying in Munich most definitely has its perks: it has a strong economic centre and well-known enterprises from the high-tech, electronics, communication and automobile industries such as BMW, Siemens, Infineon, Telefonica (O2), Allianz and Munich Re Group are headquartered here, as well as global consultancies such as PWC, BCG, Deloitte, Accenture and many more.

This economic power generates excellent job opportunities for working students and graduates from all kinds of fields. Munich is also a city of ideas, innovation, and inventions. Both the German and the European Patent Office have their headquarters on the banks of the river Isar.

Munich’s leisure activity offerings are most definitely unique in Germany and even Europe. No other city is so big and metropolitan but so close to the countryside, the Alps, various lakes and hiking paths, rivers and forests and of course to ski and snowboard areas in Austria, Italy and Switzerland.

German is for sure not the sexiest or easiest language for foreigners to learn, but it is worth it. With German as a second or third language you’ll have plenty of national and international job opportunities, as the German economy is one of the largest and most powerful in the world.
