German universities have a quite good network with universities all over the world. Every year thousands of students have the opportunity to go abroad and spend some time in a different country, studying and living. This should be the same way for international students. Because of this, German universities and technical colleges try to provide enough university places for international students and they also make efforts to support them in many other questions concerning the time abroad.

Germany is a great destination for international students and offers:

  • High quality university education: Germany has a very strong economy and one of the reasons for this is the quality of its higher education system. The German government is one of world’s biggest investors in research and development. It funds and supports a wide variety of universities and their research facilities.

Consequently, many German universities focus on research and provide world-class research-oriented education. The German government monitors and accredits universities so that students can be certain that their education is of a high standard.

  • Accessibility for international applicants: Over the last 15 years we have welcomed and supported international students. During this time we have also made changes in our educational programmes to reflect the needs of business and industry:
  • Universities have adopted the Bachelor/Master system. This gives students more transparency in terms of the comparability of different subjects across universities, at both the bachelor and master level
  • Specialised private business schools have been established to provide a strong career focus for students
  • Innovative universities have developed programmes and campuses that deliver high quality programmes in the English language

These changes mean that graduates have the qualifications to work in the areas of their choice. They also mean that German higher education is even more attractive to international students. However, access to public universities is restricted.

  • A safe and welcoming environment: Germany is one of the safest places in the world. We enjoy an excellent standard of living in a safe and secure environment and welcome international visitors.

Germany has a superb system of trains, buses and trams that offer efficient and cheap transportation around the country. This allows for easy and affordable access to the university and to Germany’s cultural life.

Set in the heart of Europe, students studying in Germany can quickly get to other European cities. Our high quality of life and excellent educational system attracts 180,000 international students to enter German universities every year.

Excellent employment prospects:

Strong German economy
The German economy is Europe´s strongest. It is the European leader in terms of growth, employment and export. It grew by more than 3% in 2010, an estimated 2.6% in 2011 and is forecast to keep growing strongly in 2012. This has created a record boom in employment. Skilled professionals are in demand, creating enormous employment and career opportunities.

International orientation
Germany’s location at the centre of Europe means that it is oriented to international markets. German products are admired around the world. The level of its openness (relation of exports and imports to the GNP) rose from 55% to 80% between 1995 und 2010. Our economy is export driven and thousands of German companies enjoy relationships across the world – offering career opportunities to international students.

Extra opportunities due to demographic shift
Like most of Europe, Germany has a huge demographic problem. The birth rate is declining and a shortage of well-trained professionals is emerging. This is expected to accelerate after 2015. This is your chance! German companies are successfully established in all corners of the globe and will be looking for new employees the moment you graduate.

Immigration perspectives to Germany and the European Union
Due to this shortage of skilled professionals, the German government has relaxed its immigration laws. Graduates of German universities now have the right to stay in Germany to find work in the year after their graduation. After working for three years they receive a permanent work and residence permit. You can find more information about obtaining a work permit in Germany in the “migration check” section of the federal employment agency website.

Germany’s climate is moderate and has generally no longer periods of cold or hot weather. Northwestern and coastal Germany have a maritime influenced climate which is characterized by warm summers and mild cloudy winters. Most areas on the country’s North Sea coast have midwinter temperatures about 1.5°C or even higher. Farther inland, the climate is continental, marked by greater seasonal variations in temperature, with warmer summers and colder winters.
