Our Promise

We are neutral - and transparent

Our aim is to offer international students independent and professional advice. Therefore, we list all available study offers on MyGermanUniversity.com - while many other portals or agencies only list or recommend those (private) universities that pay for exposure.

However, we have to earn money to keep our services for international students free of charge which is our priority. We do this in the following way: German universities can present their course of studies in a prominent way (see the colored tiles with images and videos in the result lists).
