Planning to pursue a graduate degree abroad can seem overwhelming. This event is designed to help you navigate the process – from finding the right program and university to understanding the requirements and application process.

Germany is a popular destination for American students seeking a graduate degree abroad: with many tuition-free, English-taught graduate programs, German universities equip students with a top-notch international education and unique edge to adapt to the global marketplace. This fair will introduce you to a wide range of graduate opportunities in all subject fields.

There will be plenty of opportunities to meet representatives from various German universities, funding agencies, and partner organizations.

You should attend if you are: an undergraduate or a graduate student, young professional, career service advisor or someone who is interested in graduate studies in Germany!

WunderbarTogetherThe Twilight if Angela Merkel: Implications for Germany and Europe: A "Deutschland Ambassadors Initiative" event
April 9, 2019 | 5:30 pm | The University Club, University of Wisconsin-Madison | 803 State Street | Madison, WI 53703

The Deutschland Ambassadors Initiative brings together alumni and friends of various German universities for a series of talks and networking events in the U.S. This event is organized by German universities and their liaison offices based in New York. The Deutschland Ambassadors Initiative invites alumni and friends to join a growing network of people from diverse backgrounds, ages and professions who share an interest in Germany.

Following her party’s disappointing results in a series of regional elections, German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced in the fall of last year that she would step down as leader of the Christian-Democratic Union, a position she held for almost two decades. She also promised to serve out her current fourth term as Chancellor but not seek re-election. Germany thus finds itself on the cusp of a new era. What are the implications of these momentous decisions for domestic politics? How will they affect Germany’s foreign policy and international standing, in the European Union and beyond? During years of political and economic turmoil, Merkel was seen as a factor of stability and continuity at home and abroad. This talk considers the uncertainty prompted by her departure and what comes next for Europe and its most powerful country.


Nils Ringe is Professor of Political Science, Jean Monnet Chair, and Director of the Center for European Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP here
