Spending four years studying Commerce with German in NUIG was a decision which I will be forever grateful for. The course gives you a broad overview of Commerce in general while also giving you a full degree in business level German.
In school, I had always struggled with German as a subject. However, I found studying German at college to be very different. Smaller interactive class sizes combined with dedicated lecturers greatly enhanced the learning experience. German, once my least favourite subject in school, ended up being one of the most enjoyable throughout college.
Erasmus is a once in a lifetime opportunity which I would highly recommend to any student who gets the chance. My Erasmus was not just a way to improve my language skills but I also got to meet new and interesting people and explore several European cities along the way.
Having a language makes you very employable. My current employer, an international firm with their European headquarters here in Galway, were impressed by my Business knowledge and my ability to speak German in my role.
I’d advise anyone who is looking for a versatile yet specialised degree in Commerce with a language to definitely consider studying Commerce International with German in NUIG.
