VU student Veronika Sultana on exchange in Germany

Germany Week is your chance to learn about Germany, German culture and how you could apply for a Victoria University travel grant of $4000 to go to Germany for a semester. During the week you have an opportunity to speak with VU exchange staff, as well as German students and past exchange students about living and studying in Germany.

Reasons to study in Germany

  • Germany is a multicultural country in Western Europe
  • A lot of people in Germany speak English
  • Because of Germany's central placement, students studying there have an opportunity to discover Europe

Victoria University has a number of exchange partner institutions in Germany. Some of them are:

VU Student Veronika Sultana about exchange in Germany:

"Studying abroad has contributed to both my academic and personal development. It has opened my eyes and has been a truly rewarding experience. I learnt about German culture and cultures from other parts of the world. Obviously I had language difficulties as I did not speak German, but they were minimal as most Germans speak some English quite well. Living abroad is an experience of a lifetime, enjoy it and take as much as you can from it."
