Lower Saxony, Germany

Established in 1831, the University of Hannover is a public university located in Hannover, Germany. It is one of the largest and oldest science and technology universities in Germany. With a total enrollment of 25,000 students out of which 2,121 are from foreign countries it has nine faculties which offer 190 full and part degree programs in 38 fields of study. The university also sponsors the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), the largest science and technology library in the world.
There is no specific exam for the entrance of this university, not even the German language test. The only exam that you might have to give would be for acquiring the German visa; else the university does not easily keep exams for entrance.
German language eligibility:
No! You don’t need to learn German; the university provides most courses in English. Professors and fellow students also help you to understand and communicate through the German gap. But, as a suggestion I’d say that you should have a basic knowledge of German so that smaller problems shouldn’t be big ones in Hanover.

With a population of 518,000, Hanover is a major centre of Northern Germany and the country's thirteenth largest city. Hanover also hosts annual commercial trade fairs such as the Hanover Fair and the CeBIT. Every year Hanover hosts the Schützenfest Hannover, the world's largest marksmen's festival, and the Oktoberfest Hannover, the second largest Oktoberfest in the world (beside Oktoberfest of Blumenau) which is the festivals which everyone waits every year. In 2000, Hanover hosted the world fair Expo 2000. Hanover is of national importance because of its universities and medical school, its international airport and its large zoo. The city is also a major crossing point of railway lines and highways (Autobahnen), connecting European main lines in both the east-west (Berlin–Ruhr area) and north-south (Hamburg–Munich, etc.) directions. The university is pretty well connected to all parts of the city, and even though there is nothing much to roam around; yet you will enjoy the city and its weather.
Infrastructure of the university is one of the best seen till date. It is historic and the most beautiful one. The campus resides close to the urban side and has a good connectivity to all parts of it. The campus is so beautiful that it is considered as a heritage and is one of the most visited tourist place in Hanover.
Now in terms of the living cost on average, students in Hannover spend between 800 and 900 Euros a month on general living expenses. With the addition of about 60 Euros for education, the total monthly cost is about 930 Euros.
Hannover’s weather is most pleasant from May to October, with mild temps that rarely break ninety, while winter beautifies the region with the snow that comes with twenty and thirty degree forecasts. Climate, however, is not what should determine when and where to go while visiting the city; the attractions and festivities that constitute Hannover’s space and time are more important considerations to take into account when setting an itinerary.
The university has good teachers who teach their students in the easiest way so that everyone understands. Practical are given an emphasis on, as the professors feel that it is the easiest way to learn anything difficult. The university has a structured format in which the students are made to complete the syllabus within a specific given time and professors help students do the same every time. The professors are helpful and would clear any doubt even if you ask them about it at any hour of the day or night.
The various forms of financial assistance available to students, such as the well-known ‘BAföG’ (Federal Education Assistance Act) and its alternatives make it possible for students to complete their studies rapidly and effectively even without large financial resources. The criteria by which scholarships are awarded are very varied. Decisive for the awarding of a scholarship is mainly an above-average performance, but also social involvement, cultural interests or belonging to a particular faith. Many foundations or trusts expect the stipendiaries to be active within the organization and to represent its principles and intentions and this is why preliminary careful research is so important. The effort required for making an application can take several days and the whole process may extend over a period of weeks - however, it is worth taking the trouble as scholarships do not have to be repaid.
The university has not specifically mentioned about the in- campus placements, but as per alumni the university conducts placements after end of every semester. The university has good connections, even with the alumni. If university fails to conduct placement, then you can get in touch with alumni and get connected to firms through them.
The university is rated well in all its sections, but before applying you should consider the fact that the city around the university is a small city and there is nothing much to do apart from studies. If you are going just for a degree and some fun then you might end up becoming a scholar here, which is good because less distraction eventually leads up to good exam results. The university has a good method of teaching though, so even if you don’t party through your years of graduation still you might end up making good friends at least. There won’t be any night parties but evening coffee will be your kind of kicks. But, once you are in you will have a few years of peace and good education.
