What to take in mind when choosing my degree programme?

Are there school subjects you are particularly interested in? Do you have a concrete idea of your future career? Do you know a person who you believe has found the job of his/her dreams? All these questions help you to narrow down your list of possible degree programmes.

  • You can reduce the number of possible degree programmes by thinking of school subjects that interest you most. However, at school only a small part is taught. A degree programme includes many further areas (e.g. when studying a language you will not only learn the language itself but also about literature and regional studies) - do you already know all thematic areas of the degree pogramme?
  • In case you have a concrete idea of your career, find out which degree programme makes you achieve your goal.
  • A degree programme takes at least three years. Bear in mind that you will deal with topics of this degree programme for the next 3 to 5 years .
  • Do not get yourself influenced too much by future job opportunities when making your decision - the labour market can change radically within the next 3 to 5 years.
  • Last but not least ... a range of information and counselling facilities can help you with your decision.
