You finally have your school-leaving certificate in your pocket and want to experience something new, explore a foreign country, learn the language and immerse yourself in the culture. Use one of the many opportunities to start your adventure abroad - from au pair or language course to work & travel or studying in Germany. We have compiled important information on all these topics for you.
Many know directly at the school, not yet whether they want to study and if so, what. Fortunately, there are other ways to gain experience, improve your language skills and find out what you want.
For example, language courses are an option, which in some cases are also important for studying in Germany later - the perfect combination.
If you already know that you want to take a break between school and university, you can also go to Germany as an au pair. Special au-pair agencies arrange and organize your stay and are your contact person during your stay.
Being an au-pair has many advantages - you not only learn the language, you also dive deeply into the culture and learn to take responsibility. Afterwards the decision for your future will be much easier.
