The following factors make Germany an ideal destination for an international
student: world-class education, exciting urban life embedded with beautiful
landscapes and a welcoming culture with people from across the globe. Germans
somewhat ironically call their own country “the country of poets and thinkers”.
Institutions in Germany are in excess of 400, many of which offer English-taught
study programmes - about 1,000 in total. Many German universities are placed
high in international rankings.
Not only can you expect a world-class education when you study in Germany.
At most universities, it is even for free;No matter what country you come
from, most schools offer their education completely free of charge. There are,
of course, some exceptions: mostly private schools, or study programmes for
students with prior professional experience.
Job market for graduates
Economy of Germany is very large with numerous opportunities for foreign
graduates. Contrary to what is seen in a European Nation, Germany's economy
is not centered around one or two specific locations. Industrial hubs are present
across the country: Hamburg is home to trade and media companies, whereas
Munich and Stuttgart are strong in automotive and manufacturing. Frankfurt is
the financial capital. Strange enough, Berlin does not have a strong industrial
presence. But the country capital has developed into Europe's startup capital
over recent years. Spoken German is essentially a prerequisite for entry-level
jobs. The few exceptions are jobs in IT sector and jobs at global startups -
particularly in startup hubs like Hamburg or Berlin.
