Volunteer for Sustainable Food Program in Germany through Freundeskreis Ökodorf Organization



In this placement, you will be in the kitchen in which a team prepares two warm meals for both the community and the guests every day (40-100 people usually, sometimes more for bigger festivals). The kitchen uses the vegetables grown in our community gardens and cooks a large variety of vegetarian and vegan food. If you enjoy chopping, cleaning and getting creative while cooking this placement is the right place. If you already have cooking experience you can also take on more responsibility by stepping up as a sous-chef at bigger events. German language skills will be very helpful in the kitchen.

Facts and figures on Germany’s higher education system

Germans somewhat ironically call their own country “the country of poets and thinkers”. Nonetheless: There are around 400 institutions of higher educations in Germany, many of which offer English-taught study programmes – about 1,000 in total. Many German universities score high in international rankings.

Tuition fees

Not only can you expect a world-class education when you study in Germany. At most universities, it is even for free. That’s right: No matter what country you come from, most schools offer their education completely free of charge. There are, of course, some exceptions: mostly private schools, or study programmes for students with prior professional experience. Good to know: If you decide to stay and work in Germany after graduation, you can often deduct previous tuition fees from your income tax.

Cost of living

Living costs in Germany are relatively modest when compared to other Western European nations. On average, students can get by on 800 euros per month.

Rents in certain metropolitan areas, such as Hamburg or Munich, maybe high, although in no way comparable to cities like Paris or London, especially with some flexibility regarding the part of town to live in.

Job market for graduates

Germany is a large economy with countless opportunities for foreign graduates. Unlike many other European nations, Germany’s economy is not centered around one or two specific locations. Industrial hubs are scattered across the country: Hamburg is home to trade and media companies; Munich and Stuttgart are strong in automotive and manufacturing; Frankfurt is the leading financial capital. Strangely, Berlin does not have strong industrial presence but has developed into Europe’s startup capital over recent years.

Speaking German is almost always a prerequisite especially for entry-level jobs. The common exceptions are jobs in tech/IT, and jobs at internationally oriented startups – particularly in startup hubs like Hamburg or Berlin.
