As a student, in today’s time, one has countless options on which country to opt for higher studies, there’s USA, Australia, UK, Canada and the list goes on and on. However, a popular option that is being increasingly considered is Germany. 

With a vibrant culture and rich geography, Germany is the optimal place for one to go for higher education and even consider living permanently thereafter, so much that it’s even called ‘a higher education paradise’. 

With a list of pros that certainly exceeds it cons, Germany is a destination that receives more than 375,000 students seeking university degrees. Here are some reasons why Germany should be on your list too:

  1. Low or Minimal Tuition Fees: With countries such as USA, where paying off student loans well into your 30’s has become a topic of debate, it is refreshing to hear that Germany offers university degrees at a low price. (Due to a decision made by the government in 2014, all international students opting for public universities can study free of cost and will only have to pay for administrative fees.) Tuition is free to everybody in Germany, including international students, as a good education should not depend on the income of the parents and is therefore paid from taxes.
  2. Quality Education: Universities in Germany are known for high-quality research that they conduct which impacts their education level as well. What’s more important is that degrees from German universities are highly regarded by employers as well. The QS World University Rankings of 2021 has reported that Germany is home to 46 of the 1000+ universities mentioned in the list.
  3. Great work opportunities: Germany boasts of high employment rates for their international students. Being the home of major car manufacturers such as BMW and Volkswagen as well as fashion companies such as Adidas, you can be rest assured that you wouldn’t have to worry about your residence permit.
  4. New language: you get the chance to learn a new language and perfect this during your studies. German is a language that is not only spoken in Germany, but by many people outside. Also, knowing German will give the chance to get a job with one of the many German companies or companies that have work-relations to Germany all over the world.

However, it is also important to consider what kind of career trajectory you would like to chart for yourself in Germany.  It is common knowledge that Germany is popular for the automotive industry however, it is also a strong choice for other courses too.  One of the very new and popular areas is the area of Biotechnology / Biochemistry with the Biontech / Pfizer being a perfect example here.
