Germany offers a diverse range of degree programmes in engineering, business, and arts, leading to exciting and fulfilling careers. With state-of-the-art facilities, exceptional professors, and a vibrant student community, studying in Germany can be a transformative adventure that opens doors to infinite possibilities.

High-Quality Education

Germany is globally recognised for its high-quality education system. According to the QS Higher Education System Strength Rankings list and QS World University Rankings, Germany ranks fourth as one of the best higher education systems in the world. The German education system is unique in some ways. For instance, students must complete a year of practical work in their chosen field before graduation. This equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their professional careers.

Career Opportunities

Germany offers diverse job opportunities, particularly in the technological, scientific, and engineering fields. International students studying in Germany have a competitive edge in the job market because the country is home to many large multinational corporations and startups, including Volkswagen AG, Bosch Engineering GmbH, and Siemens AG.

Affordable Education and Living

Studying in Germany provides international students with plenty of opportunities to stretch their budgets and enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. With its low living costs and reasonable tuition fees, Germany offers an exceptional opportunity for students to receive an elite education without breaking the bank.

Affordable Living

Germany is known for being comparatively cheaper to live in than other European nations. It also boasts a high standard of living and quality of life. Living costs vary depending on the city and region, with metropolitan cities like Munich and Berlin costing more than smaller towns like Würzburg and Erfurt.

Visa Benefits

A Schengen visa can provide students with several benefits, including the freedom to travel and explore other countries within the Schengen Area – which covers 26 European countries for up to 90 days in six months. A simplified visa application process for students eliminates the need for separate visas for each country they visit. Graduates can enter and leave the Schengen Area multiple times during their studies– beneficial for those who need to exit and re-enter the country for various reasons.

Graduates who have acquired a university degree such as Bachelor’s, Master’s, MBA or PhD in Germany can apply for a Job Seeker visa for 18 months after graduation. This allows them to stay and look for a job or start a business.
