Gymnasium

12 posts in this topic

Hi guys. On summer I am moving to Munich. My question is what are the best "Gymnasiums" in Munich. I am straight A student, I have interest in computer science(fluent in C, Python ...) and physics. Please answer if you can help me.

 

Kind regards,

Mihael Beljo

Perhaps you can reveal a few important details: How old are you, in which grade do you want to be accepted and how well do you speak German?

Sorry for not doing this earlier. I am 15 years old, I will finish my elementary school in May. I want to be accepted in first grade. I am excellent student with some advanced skills in math, physics and computer science (programming). I know basics of German(but I think I can learn it fastly).

Gymnasium in Germany starts in 5th grade, at age 10 (if you started elementary school at age 6) or 11.

 

Please read this thread, and all the threads linked from it:

Summary: you will be very lucky to be accepted into any Gymnasium in Munich (and the Adolf-Weber-Gymnasium will only accept you if you're still 15 when the new school year starts in September 2019!)

 

Is there no way for you to remain with family in Croatia and finish your schooling there?

How do you think you can achieve the required results at a Bavarian Gymnasium, where the language of instruction is usually  German, if you only have a basic knowledge of German? 

 

I suggest you get in contact with the International educational counselling service in Munich http://www.awg.musin.de/fileadmin/faecher/deutsch_und_svk/flyer_bb_international_englisch.pdf

To get into university, you need the Abitur, which is the German baccalaureate, or a baccalaureate from another country, e.g. from Croatia.

There is no other way to get into university in Germany.

 

If you move to Munich, you will have to repeat at least 2 years in school just to learn German, so you will be 20 years old when you finish school in Germany.

In Croatia you can finish school at age 18, and then use your Croatian school leaving certificate to directly enter university in Germany, and for example, study in English at the Technical University of Munich: https://www.tum.de/nc/en/studies/international-students/

 

The official Anabin website tells us which school leaving certificate you need to enter university in Germany, choose "Kroatien" here: https://anabin.kmk.org/no_cache/filter/schulabschluesse-mit-hochschulzugang.html#land_gewaehlt

This gives this result:

I think I can learn it in few months, last year I have been in Germany for week and I have learnt basics.

If you speak and write in English at a high level, you could try the Albert Einstein Gymnasium,  which a bilingual (English /German) state school directed towards the sciences. It’s in Grünwald.

Good luck!

The key word being "bilingual", which means B2/C1 German is also required for all potential students. At least that's the way things are done here in Berlin, and I can't imagine Bavaria being any less stringent/diligent.

Same round my way.   Bilingual means school language German, with a stream classes run in English for highly capable students doing English as a foreign language.   Not a parallel track for English speakers.   Obviously such school places are in very high demand locally and even many clever kids are disappointed to miss out on them.   And, as the poster notes, in a STEM specialist school, aptitude and passion for all three sciences also required.  It is doing your chemistry and physics etc in English basically, in an otherwise German school setting.
