Sausage University

Sausage-loving Germans are being offered degrees in their favourite subject - bangers.

Expert Norbert Wittmann has set up the Sausage Academy in Neumarkt to offer qualifications in the appreciation and preparation of German sausages.

Students can earn a BA diploma - Banger Authority - by boosting their studies with extra seminars in lager choices, mustard appreciation and which oompah band music goes with different types of sausage.

Serious students can go on to take a masters' course in what German's consider the holy grail or sausage - the Bavarian white.

Academy principal Wittmann explained: "I love it. I have to eat white sausage twice a day. Sunday is the only day I don't eat white sausage.

"I have students from all over the world and I am glad to be spreading the good news about German sausage around the globe," he added.

So far 1,300 students have graduated this year with the BA certificate.
