Discover what student life at the Hertie School is all about

The Hertie School's Open Week went virtual this year from 15-19 March! In 24 online sessions, we covered topics ranging from professional development at the Hertie School, to financing your studies, studying abroad during your master's degree, planning your course schedule, writing your master's thesis, getting started in Berlin and more.
