TH Köln/ University of Applied Sciences
Anna J
Germany, Undergraduate
Communication and Information Sciences
Overall
I am a Bachelor student in the 4th semester of the study path "Multilingual Communication". During the 3rd semester you get to pick a prior field of attention. You can choose between Translation/Economy/Culture & Media.

The first three semesters are rather general as you deepen your knowledge in the two chosen languages (choice between English/French/Spanish) and their cultural region studies, get a general idea about economy, law, IT basics, and translation. Furthermore you gain intercultural competences.

All my professors are very reliable, and throughout very understanding and supporting.

With the obtained degree B.A. you have various opportunities for jobs and also the possibility to attain a Masters program

I was quite lucky as I met a german boyfriend so my german increased considerably. It's so easy to speak english all the time but I think it's such a good opportunity to improve your language.
