Alter Turm in Hildesheim


A famous Christian center with stunning religious architecture

Located in Lower Saxony, in northern Germany, Hildesheim has a simply beautiful center, with numerous UNESCO-protected constructions. For instance, the Cathedral houses a globally famous collection of chandeliers and relics, but the whole neighborhood is a treasure chest of churches and civic buildings. While the city seems to be stuck in a time-warp, much of the city was meticulously, and brilliantly restored after World War II.

Medieval churches



Situated in northern Germany, Hildesheim is home to 101,000 people, and the small but successful University of Hildesheim. Highlights include the medieval marketplace, St. Mary's Cathedral, and the Romanesque St. Michael's church, but the whole city is a delight.


Studying and Working in Hildesheim

History may be all around in Hildesheim, but the city has a very forward-looking university. The University of Hildesheim (UH) was founded in 1946 and focuses on education above all else, with a strong international emphasis.

TestDAF qualifications are required by many courses, but language learning support is available for international students, and a buddy system also helps visitors settle into their studies. Excursions are also provided to the city's many historical monuments, as well as local cultural events like M'era Luna - one of Germany's most popular alternative music festivals.

The university is an excellent place to begin a teaching career in Germany. Students can expect opportunities at Gymnasium and Realschule levels, as well as the chance to pursue careers in administration and charity work.
