Studying and earning a doctorate in Germany

The Higher Education Compass provides extensive information on Germany's higher education institutions, on the range of studies and programmes that they offer, on who to contact locally, and on who the higher education institutions cooperate with around the world. These data are maintained and updated by the higher education institutions themselves and are made directly available to you by Germany's state (public) or state-recognised universities of applied sciences, colleges and universities of the arts and music, and traditional universities.

The Higher Education Institutions section enables you to set various search parameters for each institution, through which you can find an institution's central office and postal address, its key contact persons, the degree programmes and courses that it offers, plus much more.

Several search options help you explore and navigate the very extensive range of study opportunities presented in the Degree Programmes section with its 10,000 and more entries. We also offer information provided by the German Accreditation Council on a wide range of courses and programmes as well as direct links to the CHE University Ranking.

The International Cooperation section provides various search options to help you find the information you are looking for.

Downloads and statistical analyses and charts round off our service website.

The Hochschulkompass Team wishes you an interesting and successful search!
