IGCHE in a Nutshell

IGCHE is run by a consortium of German universities seeking to institutionalise the exchange of Indian and German students by incorporating a considerable part of bachelor studies in the other country. IGCHE has begun to establish a number of bilingual (English/German) bachelor programmes with reputable Indian institutions of higher education. Students joining IGCHE programmes will be offered substantial additional language training in their home country as part of their regular curriculum. Upon successful completion students will continue their studies and live in the other country for the rest of their academic education. Students of IGCHE programmes are expected to experience the foreign culture first hand and upon completion serve as substantial catalysators of Indo German Collaboration.

The outstanding opportunities of this approach include a strong focus on German language qualification and substantial practical orientation. Through intensive German language training as part of the curriculum, candidates are enabled to complete their 4th year in Germany. Before coming to Germany, students must pass TestDaF with 16 points (level 4). As part of the German study programme, the students will be attending German classes and do their internship in a German company, which is preferably combined with a bachelor thesis of a practical orientation. Fluency in German opens excellent opportunities with respect to employability at leading German companies with business interests in India, as well as Indian companies with business interests in Germany.
