1. Why Should I Study in Germany?

1.1 Some Facts about Studying in Germany

The Federal Republic of Germany is divided into 16 federal states or Lands (see appendix 1) each with its own government, parliament and constitution. This is important for us in the context of education because universities have administrative autonomy irrespective of the state support.

Not only that, but some states have introduced tuition fees, which is something you might want to keep in mind when choosing a university and program. But we will discuss this in more detail later on.

Germany is the third most attractive country in the world for foreign students and researchers after the United States and Great Britain. 303,000 foreign students are currently enrolled at public or private German institutions of higher education, which is a significant rise compared to previous years. According to the German Research Foundation (DFG) about 30 percent of doctoral and post-doc researchers are foreigners and the number is on the rise. This state of fact accounts for different reasons.

First, there are more than 400 institutions of higher education, out of which 108 universities, 216 universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulen) and 52 colleges of music and fine arts (see appendix 2). All these offer a wide range of interdisciplinary degree programs (10,000), some of which also in English. Second, and one of the decisive factors, is that a large number of public universities still do not charge tuition fees, or they charge low ones compared to other countries. Third, the postgraduate and research landscape in Germany has become more attractive in the past years. Finally, it is becoming easier to have the German studies and degrees recognized in other countries, especially European ones.

As mentioned before, the German higher education system is quite lively and dynamic at the moment, due to changes meant to lead to a harmonization in the so called European Higher Education Area. Different treaties and conventions, such as the ones in Lisbon, Amsterdam and Bologna, will provide answers to the question of the recognition of qualifications among European countries that have ratified these treaties and conventions (see appendix 3). If you come from a country that has not ratified any one of these treaties and conventions, you should check the issue of the recognition of your studies with the International Office of your home university or visit the official website of the Education Ministry/Department of your country.
