Leibniz University of Hannover

Lower Saxony, Germany | Public


Established in 1831, the University of Hannover is a public university located in Hannover, Germany. It is one of the largest and oldest science and technology universities in Germany. With a total enrollment of 25,000 students out of which 2,121 are from foreign countries it has nine faculties which offer 190 full and part degree programs in 38 fields of study. The university also sponsors the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), the largest science and technology library in the world.
Exams required:
There is no specific exam for the entrance of this university, not even the German language test. The only exam that you might have to give would be for acquiring the German visa; else the university does not easily keep exams for entrance.
German language eligibility:
No! You don’t need to learn German; the university provides most courses in English. Professors and fellow students also help you to understand and communicate through the German gap. But, as a suggestion I’d say that you should have a basic knowledge of German so that smaller problems shouldn’t be big ones in Hanover.
