The University of Cologne (German Universität zu Köln) is one of the oldest universities in Europe and, with over 44,000 students, one of the largest universities in Germany. The university is part of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, an association of Germany's leading research universities. It is furthermore the German founding member of the Community of European Management Schools and International Companies (CEMS).
The Center for Applied Computer Science of the University of Cologne (ZAIK) is a central institution of Cologne University. Responsibilities of the center include campus-wide services, coordination and promotion of research projects and education, as well as teaching applied computer science. The ZAIK is comprised of several divisions, including a campus-wide services group (a.k.a. the university's regional computer center, or RRZK). This group is responsible for managing the University of Cologne local area network (UKLAN) and over 10,000 personal workstations and compute servers that use it. The RRZK also offers courses on applied computing, and provides access to and consulting on a wide range of software systems.
RRZK provides campus-wide services on a wide range of computer issues.
An "S-Mail-Account" offers free access to the Internet, including computer labs, dial-up connections, and e-mail accounts, as well as free access to the electronic media and databases offered by university library.
Although the "S-Mail-Account" includes dial-up Internet access with no extra fees charged by the university, the phone company will still charge regular local connection fees for dialing into that service, which is frequently more expensive than Internet access fees charged by local Internet service providers that offer this in Cologne.
Many organisations offer scholarships or grants. Some of these might help you to study for a Master at University of Cologne!
