More attractive than ever: a degree in Germany
Germany is a popular country for higher education. Not only because of the wide range of programs available – currently there are more than 17,500 possible courses of study – but also because of the quality of the education and the degrees. And the comparatively low tuition fees make studying at the public institutions particularly appealing.
Thus, it is no wonder that the number of foreign students in German has been climbing steadily for years. Currently 374,600 non-German students are studying at 429 accredited institutions.
Important prerequisites for studying in Germany are proof of good German language skills, a secondary school-leaving certificate from your home country that is recognized as corresponding to the German “Abitur,” and for most non-EU citizens: a Visa.
