About Hamburg

Hamburg is located in northern Germany, on the banks of the River Elbe. It is the second largest city in Germany (after Berlin) and the capital of the state of Hamburg. Hamburg Airport (HAM), located about 8 km north of the city center, is the city’s international airport. Direct flights are available from the airport to a number of locations in Europe and beyond. In addition, the nearby cities of Bremen and Hanover, located 120 and 150 kilometers from Hamburg respectively, both have international airports.

Monthly living costs: 800 – 1000 €. That includes the cost of accommodation (400 – 750€), Food and groceries (180 – 300€), transportation (70 – 90€), and health insurance (100 – 120€). Hamburg is a large and vibrant city in northern Germany, and as such, the cost of living there can be relatively high compared to smaller cities. However, the specific living costs for a student in Hamburg will depend on their individual circumstances and lifestyle choices.

The second largest city in Germany, Hamburg boasts a population of approximately 1.8 million individuals. There are many institutions and colleges in the city, so Hamburg has a sizable student population.
According to the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, approximately 119,000 students were enrolled in Hamburg’s universities and colleges in the winter semester of 2021/2022. This significantly increases the city’s population, adding to Hamburg’s vibrant and youthful atmosphere.

    Hi, I’m from India and I’m a 2021 12th grade passout. I’m planning to apply for Summer 2025 . So i will have around 4 year gap by then. I had 99% in my 12th grade. I was preparing for Jee examination in India but dropped it and started looking for my abroad options. So, does the gap affect my admission to Hamburg stk?

      Hi Varun,

      the gap should not affect your acceptance to the studienkolleg, however, you want to make sure to provide a gap-free CV where you precisely clarify what you have been doing within those four years. The same goes with your visa application upon admission. All the best
