Whether Bachelor, Master, state examination or doctorate: the range of courses and degrees available in Germany is wide. It’s worth knowing how they differ.
German Universities provide more than 19,000 programs while the Indonesian universities provide only less than 700 programs.
Read the university program outlines carefully so you can get an idea what the course is about and its main goals, then compare it with other courses you’ve found. For example, although the curriculum of a study program may contain exact subjects of your interest, you may want it to be more of a lab-based research-oriented program rather than a theoretically-oriented study program.
The summer semester runs from March to August at Fachhochschulen (Universities of Applied Sciences) and April to September at universities; the winter semester is from September to February and October to March respectively.
BA/BSc equals 6 semesters of study
MA/MSc equals to 2-4 semesters, depending on the program
PhD equals 4-6 semesters, depending on the program
