Fast Track Bachelor Program
Computer Engineering 2015

Studying abroad through Fast Track to ISE Program at University of Duisburg-Essen was the best decision I’ve made so far. I had the opportunity to start my Bachelor’s degree program in one of the top universities in Germany, without entering the Studienkolleg or paying the tuition fees. This program is very cost- and time-saving for me as an Indonesian student. Read more

Michael Christian Suhendra
Fast-Track Bachelor Program 
Computer Engineering 2016

I was first enticed by the Fast-Track Programme due to three things: One, my desire to study in a field concerning both engineering and informatics; two, being able to study in Germany and obtain a highly-regarded German engineering degree; and three, to do so without having to endure a year-long preparatory course (Studienkolleg).  Read more

Fast-Track Bachelor Program 
Mechanical Engineering, 2016

I was enrolled into UDE via the Fast Track Programme offered by Mercator office. I am studying Mechanical Engineering in the ISE programme, and today marks one year of living and studying in Germany. To start off, I would not say that studying engineering in Germany is the easiest thing I’ve ever done, being in a foreign country, mastering a new language, learning subjects in German alongside managing all my meals and chores. Nevertheless, I am very grateful to be given this opportunity; falling, tripping and overcoming the challenges, I grow into a more independent and stronger person day by day. The education system here is very different, it is up to my own disciplinary to show up for every class or none; besides lab reports, we rarely need to hand in assignments/homework. I am impressed with the cleanliness of the city and the transportation system here in Duisburg. I am very thankful to be able to expose myself to a new culture, learning and discovering new things everyday.

Fast-Track Bachelor Program 
Electrical & Electronic Engineering, 2016

Studying in Germany is one of the best decision I’ve made. Since I arrive here, I experience a lot of new things and surprises every day. The weather here is awesome, especially Spring. I was lucky enough to have a snowy winter last year (2016 winter), where the whole space outside my apartment was covered by snow. The lectures here are very flexible and not compulsory for attendance, but on the other side, the exams are not easy to make it. I had to work extra hard to get myself to pass all the subjects for every semester. Besides studying, I also spent some time travelling around NRW with my semester ticket. During Christmas period, me and my friends even visit each and every Christmas market in the state! I could say that I never regret coming here to start and enjoy my university life!
