GISMA’s Berlin campus

You’ll never be short of job opportunities in Berlin once you’ve completed your studies, thanks to the city’s thriving business scene and flourishing tech companies.
Berlin’s public transport network is incredibly efficient, making it quick and easy to travel between major cities, as well as the two international airports.
Whilst Berlin is home to plenty of attractions, cultural events and festivals, almost a third of the city is made up of green space, so there’ll be plenty of space to relax and take in all that the bustling capital has to offer!

GISMA's Hannover campus
Boasting modern facilities, GISMAS’s Hannover campus is located in a well-established economic region, which supports a range of industries including the automotive industry and tourism industry.

Being situated in central Germany allows you to reach other major cities such as Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne in just under three hours.

Notable attractions around Hannover include the Maschsee Lake, as well as the Eilenriede Town Forest (the largest of its kind in Germany), which transforms the city into a green oasis. Maschee Lake, the Eilenriede Town Forest, and River Leine are great places to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Hannover's calendar is also full of cultural events and seasonal festivals, including the not-to-be-missed Oktoberfest.
