Part-Time Studies in Essen

Part-time studies


In the heart of the Ruhr region lies the student city of Essen. After the end of heavy industry, Germany's fourth largest city is now a popular cultural centre in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region. In addition to various nightlife options and trendy hangout clubs, the city has many parks, forests and lakes to offer. In 2017, it was awarded the title "Green capital of Europe". On top of that, it has the typical charm of the Ruhr area.
