Constructor University awards Bachelor degrees which have for almost 20 years been recognized across the world by graduate schools and employers. However, since international students are not studying in person in Germany/Europe and do not have the same visa/residence permit status, extra efforts need to be undertaken to get access to the German/European job market, e.g., by looking for internship placements in these regions. Constructor University can provide support with potential internship offerings. Online students can also use the advantage of studying and engage in work or internships in their own home countries.
This is a regular Bachelor program. The diploma is awarded in the same manner and it does not state the mode of teaching. Upon graduation, the student is awarded three different documents: Diploma, Diploma Supplement, and Transcript.

Because the program is taught online and does not require on-campus presence, the issuing of visa to reside in Germany in the course of their studies cannot be guaranteed.

Upon request, Constructor University can support you in finding off-campus accommodation.
