Studying tuition-free in Germany is an exciting alternative for many young Americans. At German Career Day, New York, the Hasso Plattner Institute branch in New York showed students and job seekers that Germany has a lot more to offer than just the Oktoberfest, Neuschwanstein Castle and bratwurst.

The event was organized by the Goethe Institute, New York on the topic of “Studying and Working in Germany.” Besides featuring a diverse group of exhibitors, an exciting program was offered on the topics of studies, scholarships, internships, exchange programs, as well as possibilities for work and research. The many universities taking part were complimented by participants, such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German American Chamber of Commerce (GACC), who informed visitors about career development.

The popular HPI booth provided attendees with the latest information on the free study program at the institute and the diversity of research in Potsdam.
