+ Bachelor Education Fair Cologne - Testimonials
University of East Anglia
“The event has been absolutely fantastic, much better than we expected. We’ve had an enormous number of visitors and a lot of interest, which is not something that UK universities can always count upon when mixed in amongst German or other continental European universities. The students had a very good level of English as well as being highly qualified - they were exactly the kind of students that we were looking for. I was also very pleased that the visitors were given a list of courses that we offer, because this has allowed them to really prepare and choose a programme that they want to speak to us about.”
Hannah Dunlop, University of East Anglia

Things to do in Cologne
Cologne is Germany's fourth-largest city, located on both sides of the Rhine River. The Cologne Dom, a Gothic masterpiece and Germany’s most visited landmark has become the emblem of the city. The most celebrated work of art in the cathedral is the Shrine of the Three Kings believed to hold the remains of the Three Wise Men.
Nearby, there are the train station, Museum Ludwig and Romano-Germanic museum. Along the Rhine, the Old Town, together with the Cologne Dom, the Romanesque church Great St. Martin and the tower of the historic City Hall, make up the famous Rhine panorama. The Hohenzollern Bridge, a former train and pedestrian bridge, embellished with countless locks today showcases the hope for eternal love. Promenade towards the Rheinpark Park, Cologne Sculpture Park, and the Botanical garden or take the cable car straight to the Zoo.
Accompany your Kölsch (local beer) with a Halber Meter Bratwurst (half a metre long bratwurst) or try out some of these local dishes: Halver Hahn (a rye roll with Dutch cheese, butter and mustard), Himmel un Ääd (a mixture of apple pieces and mashed potatoes), Kölsche Kaviar (black pudding, rye roll and onions), Rheinischer Soorbrode (a beef (sometimes horsemeat) dish with a special sauce of raisins, dumpling and red gabbage), Hämmche (boiled knuckle of pork, mashed potatoes and sauerkraut).
