Since last decade, India has seen more number of students aspiring higher education from abroad. When it comes to studying abroad, top 5 destinations for international students are Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, United Stated and New Zealand. But, what can be witnessed since a few years is that many European countries are also at a verge to join the list of best education providers for International students. Among Indians, for STEM courses, Germany has been on the top of all.
Here, we will be discussing about the factors which makes Germany stand out of the stack due to which it has become most suitable place to study abroad for Indians. Let us now have a look on each factor one by one and know why to Study in Germany is becoming more popular:
Affordable Tuition Fee
In Germany, tuition fee is used to finance all the respective private colleges whereas in public institutes, the tuition fee is much bearable in comparison to that of the private institutes. Candidates just have to pay administration and semester fee of the respective college chosen by the student. Both international as well as native students can take the benefit from this rule. University of Hamburg, University of Bremen, University of Cologne and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are some of the tuition-free universities in German.
Courses Taught in English Exclusively for International Students
Non-English speaking countries which offer courses in English are very few in number and this quality of German institutes makes it even more preferable over other institutes. In German, most of the master’s degree programs are offered in English especially for the comfort of international students seeking engineering and technology courses.
Scholarships Offered to Engineering Students
Excellent scholarship programs are offered to engineering students in German institutes under the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) – the German Academic Exchange Service, and Deutschlandstipendium. Bilateral Exchange of Academics, DLR-DAAD Research Fellowship Program, Leibniz-DAAD Research Fellowships, etc. are some of the best scholarship program for Indian students pursuing Engineering courses.
Top Ranking Universities in the World are Here
Germany is known for its academic excellence and has top ranking universities in the world in the field of engineering. Technical University of Munich, RWTH Aachen University, TU Berlin, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, University of Stuttgart, Darmstadt University of Technology, and TU Dresden are the top seven German institutions in the fields of Engineering and Technology according to QS world university ranking.
Several Job Opportunities After Completion of Studies Within the Country
As the country is mainly focused on manufacturing industries, lots of job opportunities are being offered by Germany to engineers. Furthermore, with the consistent investment in advanced research and applied technology, it can be expected that STEM requires huge number of experts in the field in couple of years. 46, 126 EUR could be the average salary of an engineering expert in Germany. Students who will gain permit from ‘AgenturfurArbeit’ (Federal Employment Agency) can work for either 120 full days or 240 half days which is not less than a dream come true for international students.
Considering the facts stated above, it will not be hypothetical if we say that Germany may turn out to be the most preferred city destination in Europe for students aspiring their career in engineering and may also top the list of foreign education destination in the coming future.
