Webinar on Studying in Germany
3 May 2021 from 20:30 - 21:30
Webinar: German language class
Studying in Germany
In its capacity as cultural mediator between Germany and Asia, the German-Southeast Asian Center of Excellence for Public Policy and Good Governance (CPG) at the Faculty of Law of Thammasat University has been organizing offline German Language Classes for predominantly Thai students for more than ten years. In response to the pandemic-caused restrictions on mobility and gatherings, CPG since the beginning of this year has begun to offer in parallel an online German language program open to participants from all over the world.
As complimentary part of these language classes, CPG is offering a regular series of three webinars on the topics “Studying in Germany”, “Dos and Don’ts in Germany”, and “Understanding Germany”.
The first webinar, to be held on 3 May 2021, will provide information and advice pertaining to “Studying in Germany”. As a starting point, admission requirements for German universities will be presented. This will be followed by an overview of scholarship and funding opportunities, mainly from the DAAD, political foundations and the Erasmus program. The speakers will also elaborate on general and current studying conditions, given the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Additionally, the webinar aims to provide practical insight with regards to living costs and finding accommodation. There will be time for a Q&A session.
The duration of the webinar will be around 1,5 hours. Participation in these webinars is optional.
