Education in Germany

Taking a view of the flow of students to international destinations for education, Germany is one of the emerging countries. German universities offer some of the most dynamic curriculum for engineering, physical sciences, biomedical sciences and management by combining research and teaching. Prior training in German may be required as most public universities offer undergraduate courses primarily in German language. While there are some private universities which offer professional courses solely in English. At masters and doctoral levels, students have many opportunities to undertake study and research in English.

Competitive scholarships/grants are available from universities, DAAD and European Commission for some programs as few courses (especially those in business management) might charge higher fees for non EU/EEA students. While pursuing the course, students can choose working for 20 hours per week. Upon graduation, they are entitled to extend residence permit to seek jobs.


For Indians specially, Germany has been one of the popular destinations offering opportunities for studying as well as working. The two major factor luring Indians for pursuing higher education in Germany are the affordability and the diverse employment opportunities available after the course. Some of the world’s largest Fortune 500 companies are based or are operative in German cities making it a technology hub of the world. Students are allowed and encouraged to pursue internships with these companies during their studies making way for employment post completion of the course.
