Studying and Working in Frankfurt am Main

Frankfurt is one of the most popular destinations for overseas students in Germany, and the reason is simple. No other German city has such an international focus, with all three of Frankfurt's higher education institutions reaching out across the world.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe University is the largest, and is globally respected for social research. But both the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and the School of Finance and Management also have strong reputations. All serve the financial sector, training management graduates, IT specialists and economists.

The city, in general, is a pleasant place to study, with the attractions of Museum Island, sports teams like Eintracht Frankfurt and the chance to explore distinctive Hessian cuisine all adding to the appeal.
