Although the final decision depends on each university individually, it is generally the case that American degrees are recognized internationally, as they are highly regarded around the world. (Robin, one of the three founders of Glocal Sports, continued his studies after his American Bachelor’s degree with a Master’s degree in Germany without any problems).

At first, it is clearly an adjustment to be taught in English in every subject. However, you quickly settle in because you also speak in English in your free time and on the training field and thus make rapid progress. In addition, student athletes have access to tutors, mentors, and other resources that make studying in the US easier.

The amount of a scholarship depends on how valuable the students are to the respective universities. Both academic and athletic factors play a role here. In addition, the probability of receiving a full scholarship is higher if you start the application process early enough, as not all scholarships have been awarded by the universities at this point.

Scholarships cannot be lost due to injury or poor athletic performance. However, academic performance that is too poor or breaking university, team or college association rules, can cause one to have their scholarship revoked.

At any time, it is possible to request a change of university. However, this must be discussed with the coaches, as well as the college association, so that there are no problems with the eligibility to play at the new university. However, it cannot be guaranteed that all courses taken will be recognized and credited by the new university, which is why you should inform yourself thoroughly about this before making that decision. Of course, the Glocal Sports team is also available to you as support in this phase.

The SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test that is used to measure the study ability of applicants at American universities and colleges. The three areas Mathematics, Critical Reading and Creative Writing are tested in order to find out whether a student is suitable for American universities.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is a standardized test that assesses non-native English speakers’ knowledge of the English language. The test is recognized as an admission requirement by many universities in the English-speaking world, especially in the United States. Today, there are over 9,000 international universities and agencies that rely on a TOEFL test for admission decisions. There are two different types of tests, the internet-based TOEFL test (iBT) and the paper-based TOEFL test (PBT). In its current form, the iBT is divided into the following sections:

  1. Reading comprehension (to assess comprehension of text segments)
  2. Listening comprehension (to assess listening comprehension)
  3. Speaking (to assess the ability to communicate)
  4. Written expression (to record the ability to write an essay in English on a given topic)

Yes. It is possible to start your studies in Germany and to continue them in the US. In order to do this, it is necessary to have the German course credits checked in order to find out which completed courses can be recognized and credited by the American university. Again, it makes the most sense to start the process as early as possible to avoid any uncertainty.
