Course selection

The range of courses on offer in Germany is enormous:

A total of more than 9,000 basic study courses are offered at German universities - 130 of these at the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz.

Your choice of course will change your life. Many students find it difficult to assess the different courses on offer and to choose one that best suits their needs.

There are various reasons for this:

  • Uncertainty regarding their own interests and skills Difficulty setting priorities
  • desire to keep their options open
  • General preconceptions regarding the job prospects of certain courses
  • Opinions, assessments, pressure from friends and parents to make a particular decision that the candidate doesn't actually want

There are a number of ways to find your bearings in this wealth of choice, to find out more about individual courses, and to get help in making the right decision.
