Uni in Germany

Germany’s educational reputation is perhaps the best in the world after the US and UK.

European College of Liberal Arts

If you’re looking for something new and off the beaten track, or even if you aren’t, you should take a look at the European College of Liberal Arts (abbreviated ECLA, pronounced Eck-Lah), a relatively new (and tiny) but extraordinary institution in the suburbs of Berlin that recently became a part... more..

Humboldt University of Berlin

You don’t count Albert Einstein and Karl Marx among your alumni if you don’t pull your weight in the smarty-pants department. There are a wide variety of academic experiences to be had at Humboldt, as each department seems to do things its own way more..

The University of Heidelberg
