Studying in Germany? A Good Idea!

So, you’re interested in studying in Germany? That’s fantastic! We’re happy to hear that!

Studying abroad – especially in a country very different from your own – is an exciting challenge. You will be influenced by the surge of new impressions and points of view you encounter here. Studying in Germany– in the heart of Europe – will certainly have a long-lasting impact on your life.

There are diverse opportunities in Germany for learning and researching. German universities have an outstanding reputation throughout the world. Each year they produce significant, internationally recognised advances and innovations.

Here you will find ideal conditions for gaining a successful university education. By the way, you are one of many talented, young individuals who wish to study in Germany. There are more than 320,000 young people from around the world studying and researching at German universities.

At present, they comprise 11.9 percent of all students in Germany. In fact, there are very few countries that can boast a higher percentage of international students. And you are not alone as you travel to Germany.

FIVE REASONS TO STUDY IN
GERMANY

1. High-quality teaching and research

Numbering around 400, German universities offer excellent opportunities for learning and research. The British magazine Times Higher Education ranks eleven German universities among the world’s 200 best International students also rate German universities highly: in a 2012 survey, a good 85 per cent of the international students surveyed stated that they were satisfied with the quality of the teaching. And more than 90 per cent praised the high standard of equipment of German university laboratories.

2. Attractive international courses

German universities also offer a large number of Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and doctorates aimed at international students. Depending on the university and availability, the students can take these courses in English or French, for example. In 2014 about 301.000 international students were enrolled at a German university. This corresponds to a share of 11.5 percent among all students in Germany. Most of them come from China followed by the Russian Federation, India and Austria.

3. Low fees

Unlike many other countries, no tuition fees are charged for undergraduate degrees at public universities in Germany. The university year is usually divided into two semesters. Since the winter semester 2014/2015, students nationwide are exempt from paying the tuition fees. Merely a semester
fee must be paid, an amount results between 100 and 300 euros. In other words, German universities offer sound academic training for relatively low costs. To live on, students in Germany need around 800 euros per month on average. You can earn something towards this by getting a student job.

4. Good career prospects

Studying at a German university could be your first step towards a career in Germany. Because German companies are looking for university graduates in a variety of sectors – especially in the fields of engineering, medicine, the life sciences and information technology. You are advised to build contacts with suitable companies for example by means of an internship – during your course of study. With your German degree, you can score points with
internationally operating companies, since by moving to Germany you have proven that you are flexible and keen to learn, and that you are at ease in an international environment. Studying in Germany can also pay off financially. Just remember that salaries differ from sector to sector and the amount
depends on different factors such as the need on the labour market for
certain qualifications or professional experience. On average, university graduates aged between 25 and 30 earned a gross salary of 3,537 euros in 2010. Salaries usually rise the more professional experience you have, and so the 30-35 age category were earning an average gross salary of 4,768 euros a month. Students of mathematical and technical subjects, including
information technology, have better salary prospects compared with the average for graduates. Remember that as a rule, company employees have to pay social contributions and are protected by unemployment, health, nursing care, pension and accident insurance. In this case, the contributions are deducted directly from your salary.

5. High quality of life

Life in Germany is very good. If you study here, you will not only find Europe‘s most dynamic economy. Germany is also a very safe country, with a high standard of living, a rich cultural history and a very diverse population.
The country also has an excellent infrastructure at the centre of Europe as well as numerous opportunities for recreational activities. Also, at university you can do much more than just study: you can join a university sports club or theatre group, or engage in social or political activities. You can also go to university parties, music festivals, to the cinema or to night clubs with other
students. You will soon make friends and through them get to know the country where you are studying even better.
