About Coburg

The German city of Coburg is located in northern Bavaria. Nuremberg Airport (NUE), located approximately 100 km south of Coburg, is the nearest major airport. Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and Munich Airport (MUC) are two other international airports within a 200 km drive.

Monthly living costs: 600 – 800 €. That includes the cost of accommodation (300 – 550€), Food and groceries (180 – 280€), transportation (70 – 80€), and health insurance (100 – 120€). Due to its small size, the cost of living in Coburg is often lower than in larger cities such as Munich or Berlin. This is especially true when it comes to housing, as the city is full of inexpensive shared apartments for students.

Coburg’s population is estimated to be about 41,000, including about 5,000 students. Coburg’s student population contributes to the city’s lively atmosphere by organizing a variety of cultural events, concerts, and festivals throughout the year. The city is also known for its friendly locals, making it a desirable alternative for students seeking a more intimate learning environment.

    I would like to know whether after I complete studienkolleg at Coburg I will only be limited to Universities of applied sciences or can I apply to research universities like TUM and Ludwig

      With an FSP from Studienkolleg Coburg you will only be eligible for admission to Fachhochschulen (universities of applied sciences).

    I have a question regarding the language requirement. It’s mentioned on the website that you only need the “Participation in a language course certificate” is that right? I asked them on the mail as well they said the similar thing. If that’s true could you send me an example of how the so-called “Participation certification” should look like? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

      Hi Brian,
      that is correct. Studienkolleg Coburg accepts certification of course attendance:

      + Nachweis über besuchte deutsche Sprachkurse Stufe B1+/B2 “Kursteilnahmebestätigung”

      The Course attendance certificate usually includes the starting and end date of your German course, the name, logo and address of the institute, The level and the total number of hours. You can send a copy of what you have per Email to Studienkolleg Coburg and ask if its sufficient. All the best
