StudyFinder: Why some profiles are displayed

We always display all relevant study programs automatically and free of charge (while some competitors only include the study programs in their database if the universities pay for them). Nevertheless, of course we also have to earn money to keep our platform online. Therefore, universities can pay to have their profiles featured, making them more attractive. These profiles are easy to spot, as they add some color to the results list and contain additional content such as videos and images.

In this way, we help individual universities stand out from the crowd and make a good first impression, but beyond that, we don't want to influence your decision. Please feel free to go for any study program listed in our database — regardless of whether it’s featured or not. 

If you want to read more about our marketing services for German universities (including a list of our current university partners), you can do that here (only in German for the time being - sorry!).

StudyFinder: Info package requests

For some profiles you have the possibility to request an info package by filling out a form. For the establishment of contact and the transmission of your request, we usually receive a small service fee. If you decide to actually apply to the respective university, we will of course be happy (because we see ourselves as partners of all German universities). But you can just as well decide against it. We do not receive any additional remuneration or success fee in the event of an application or enrollment - because we want to avoid any bias or conflict of interest.

StudyFinder: Testimonials

Some profiles on our StudyFinder contain testimonials that reflect the experiences of individual students/alumni on the study program in question.  However, these are individual experiences, and in no way claim to reflect the experiences of others. They do not guarantee that the program in question is right for you.

Webinars

In our webinars, we regularly host German universities that present their degree programs. The selection of the universities is made by our editorial team and does not include any recommendation or evaluation. Some universities receive participation in the webinars as part of a paid marketing cooperation. However, we also invite universities to present themselves free of charge. Regardless of this, you are of course free to decide which university you want to apply to — regardless of whether they were our guests in the webinar or not.
