Study in Germany

Study in Germany offers international students a unique and enriching educational experience. Renowned for its beautiful countryside, abundant history and top universities, Germany boasts some of the finest institutions across all industries worldwide – offering unrivalled degrees that open doors into global careers.

Germany provides an abundance of undergraduate and graduate study options, with English-taught programs becoming increasingly available. Selecting the ideal university will depend upon your academic interests, learning style preferences, budget and location preferences – but be prepared for some tough decisions!

Most public universities in Germany do not charge tuition fees to international students attending their campuses; all you need to pay are living expenses such as rent, food and transport costs. Germany is widely considered very cost-effective for international students studying there.

German higher education stands out as a global model in all areas, boasting superior standards of teaching and research. The three primary types of higher education institutions – universities, universities of applied sciences and art colleges – each offer degrees or certificate programs which have been certified by national or international bodies.

German bachelor degrees typically span three years, and students select their field of study early (unlike in the US where this decision may be left until junior year). German universities also boast highly specialised master’s degree programs that may even grant a doctorate within just several years.

Engineering is one of the most sought-after subjects among German students, thanks to a history of innovation. Some of the biggest companies like Siemens, Bosch and Daimler all have headquarters here.

If you are planning to study in Germany, ensure that your qualifications are recognized before beginning university applications. Also ensure you have all of the documents, such as school-leaving certificate or diploma and grades ready for submission; having this documentation at your fingertips can speed up and ensure complete documentation.

Before applying to university, it is also crucial that you ensure you possess all of the required visa and residency permits to study in Germany. While requirements vary by country, in general if you are from an EU/EEA member state or have health insurance that covers Germany then no separate student visa or residence permit application should be necessary. Should one become necessary however, filling out an online form on the Foreign Federal Office website along with all supporting documentation will suffice – although deadlines can differ between institutions.
