Why Study in Germany
Excellent Academic Standard
The world-renowned tradition of German Universities dates back to the 14th century and ensures an outstanding level of education and research. Products of German companies, especially machine tools, motor vehicles and electrical engineering products are leading in the international markets.
Germany provides the best and the most cost-effective study options for aspiring overseas students. Universities are state-funded, therefore, mostly no tuition fee is charged. You only need to bear for your living expenses, such as accommodation, food, transport and health insurance.
Attracted by international study programs and excellent research opportunities, each year more than 2,50,000 international students (12% of all the students at German universities) come to Study in Germany and for research. Study in Germany also means being part of an international, highly qualified academic community.
Germany is arguably the only country in the World where completion of study programs in Universities is smoothly followed by paid internship in top MNCs that eventually lead to full-time placement. Close ties with companies like Daimler-Chrysler, SAP, Siemens, BMW or Bosch will increase your career prospects.
German industry has always been more than a supplier of goods to India. It presents itself as a creator of new jobs in India. Periods of high exports were always accompanied by large flows of investment and technology. The new spurt of German exports to India has led to an equally impressive boost in new investment and technical cooperation projects. Among foreign investors in India, Germany was the third largest in the year 2005-06 with a volume of 303 Million USD. SAP, Bosch and Siemens are only some examples of companies investing heavily in India.
Programs are exclusively taught in English. Therefore German language skills are not a prerequisite for starting your studies. If you are willing to learn German, you also have the opportunity to join the German Language Courses at the University, which are free of charge. A good command of German will expand your advantage on the job market in case you consider working for one of the approx. 700 German companies in India.
Since 2002 Germany has a new immigration law. As a foreign student you will receive a study visa. With this visa you are allowed to work 90 days or 180 half days in a calendar year. This right is not restricted for campus jobs like in the US. After your graduation you have the right to stay in Germany for one year. During this time you can concentrate on job-hunting. A permanent residence permit will be guaranteed after having been successful in finding a job.
