Studying at ICN Berlin means enjoying a cosy campus, located in the heart of Mitte, in the very centre of the German capital. Located above the Galeries Lafayette, it is a building famous for its modern glass temple.
But studying in Berlin is also an opportunity to dive into the heart of a city with a strong international dimension, to discover unusual places to go out and to explore a remarkable art scene. Get a sneak peak of the Berlin lifestyle!
The international dimension
If you like exploring a city with a strong international dimension, then Berlin is for you! It attracts people from all over the world, making it the most multicultural city in Germany. This is an aspect that is very much appreciated by ICN students, and in particular by Mathieu, who is currently doing his Master 2 on the Berlin campus. On this subject, he explains that he "very quickly felt at home in Berlin, because you meet people from all over the world, who are very open-minded. And since it's an international city, you don't even need to speak German!”
The international dimension can also be found in the gastronomy, as you can find restaurants with cuisines from all over the world everywhere in the city. But if you want to travel not only with your taste buds, Berlin airport serves more than .... destinations. During your studies in Berlin, you can take advantage of your free time to travel and discover new cultures!
An eccentric capital
For the party-goers, Berlin is the place to be! The German capital offers a rich nightlife, with over 4,500 bars and nightclubs.
Among them, you've probably already heard of the famous Berghainclub, an original place to get a taste of the eccentric Berlin experience. What makes this place so unique? The presence of world-renowned DJs who come to mix to guarantee you a night you’ll remember! Another feature of the venue is its selectivity: it is very difficult to get into the club. There are even tutorials and an online simulator to help you get in!
Studying in Berlin is also about employability!
Of course, students also choose to study in the German capital for the professional opportunities it offers. Thanks to its start-up culture (Gorilla, N26, Hello Fresh, Clue...) and the presence of the headquarters of many international companies (Zalando, Ikea, KPMG, DHL), Berlin is the ideal place to look for an internship and build your international career.
If you don't speak German, don't panic: thanks to its multicultural and multilingual environment, you don't need to speak the language! Berlin's English-speaking market is accessible and seeks qualified professionals.
Culture and art: discover the Berlin lifestyle
Germany's capital is unique in that it is welcoming to all and offers a multitude of activities to suit all tastes.
If you are a history and art lover, then Berlin is the place for you. Take advantage of your studies to explore its museums, world-famous opera houses, exhibitions and historical monuments!
Did you know that Berlin also has the longest open-air gallery? That's right, the East Side Gallery allows you to discover more than 100 murals by artists coming from all over the world, covering 1,316 metres!
