General Information on Life in Germany

Renting in Germany:


  • Visiting and traveling to Germany
  • Remember to use Northeastern’s in-house resources for researching a country’s culture, lifestyle, and social norms: GoinGlobal and GlobeSmart.
    • GoinGlobal is an online resource that Northeastern students have access to for free with their Northeastern credentials.  GoinGlobal delivers useful and unique material that is hand-gathered at its source, not simply compiled from publicly available Internet sources.  It provides information that is location-specific in detail and global in perspective, and delivers useful, actionable information that is constantly expanding to meet the evolving needs of a global job seeker.  GoinGlobal also provides industry-specific salary ranges and cost of living data to help students prepare for living and working abroad.
    • GlobeSmart is an online resource that Northeastern students have access to for free with their Northeastern credentials.  GlobeSmart has Culture Guides that allow students to research the country they plan to visit extensively beforehand.  This includes everything from communication styles, protocols, relationship building, workplace norms, health and safety, money and tipping, geography and climate, and more.
