WHY IS IT FREE TO STUDY IN GERMANY?
The German population is constantly dropping. While the economy is growing, there is a scarcity of skilled work force that can speak in German language and understand their work as well as social culture. This led the Government of Germany to offer special schemes for International students to study in Germany in their own language. Further, they extended 3 special rules so that more and more people can participate in this scheme such as:
- You can work up to 20 hours per week to take care of living costs during University years.
- You would be given 18 months of work search visa after graduation.
- You would be allowed to pursue Masters Program again fully free of cost.
Almost 5,000 students are flying from India every year under this scheme for Bachelor and Master’s program of their choice.
Study in Germany offers unique opportunity to study in dual education and uniform system meaning Classroom and practical (Industrial) training have equal importance and one can change to any university of their choice in different semesters. The students use this opportunity to learn language in one city, do their first year in another while complete their internship and study in Germany in the industrial city to ensure good employment opportunity.
Most of the German government Universities are covered in this scheme and offer conditional admission letter or acceptance of the academics for the student to study in Germany. Generally the Universities accept 10+3 format meaning, if the student has completed 10+2 years in India, he or she would have to go through the Pre-University year and give an exam for entering to the same.
Top ranked universities which are older than 125 years and extremely rich in its educational quality such as University of Zwickau or University of Jena are covered under this scheme.
