This video is a guide for students who want to studying history and politics in Berlin. Two students who are studying in Germany, share their stories with us so their experiences can help you find the answer of why you should study politics and history in Germany.
Today we will introduce you with two foreign students who study in Germany. Max and Andrei Avram.
Max is from USA and he study history in Berlin.
Andrei Avram comes from Bucharest, he was born and raised in Romania. Two years ago he came to Germany to study political sciences at the free University of Berlin.
Max says that studying history in Berlin has a special meaning, because there is so much history in the city, and the university itself is a piece of history. So its a great place to study history, and as a subject it is very well and on a very deep level. I’m really enjoying it.
In United States you get more time one-on-one time with professors so it certainly was a learning experience coming here and sitting in a lecture with 200,300 or 400 people. But it is a good experience, you sort of get left on your own a little bit more.
Andrei Avram says: Being in the middle of things – that’s why i choose Berlin in the first place. And because i come from Romania, i have been studying a lot about the problems in the Eastern Europe from an international relations perspective. And that is why i like it so much, because i could find a way to connect to my home country and that is why i like it so much, because i could find a way to connect to my own country even while staying in Germany. You can choose your seminars, you can choose your what topics you like to work on, and this give you the motivation to do your work well, because you don’t have to do it. You do it because you want to do it.
This place is really attractive for people from all over the world. With regard to geographical location, this university is situated at the center. But also for the history of Berlin this is the place where East and West come together. Germany is a great place to study politics and history, a lot of students enjoy their life here on Berlin. Becoming part of the strongest universities in Europe can be really privileged.
