Introduction

When We Are Planning To Study Abroad We Don’t Have Anyone To Guide Us About What Are The Different Countries Available And What They Have To Offer And So We Decide To Go With Something That Is Common Knowledge Something Everyone Knows About Because We Don’t Want To Take Risk With Our Careers And That Is Exactly What I Did Singapore Was A Safe Option For Me I Had Enough Information Available And So I Decided To Go Ahead With It Had I Known About The Perks Of Studying In Germany I Would Have Had Another Great Option To Consider As Well So After Speaking To A Lot Of People Who Have Studied In Germany I Have Come Up With These 10 Reasons Why You Should Consider Studying In Germany As Well So Let’s Begin

No Tution Fees

The First Reason Is The Presence Of No Tuition Fees In Germany In Germany There Are Two Types Of Universities Public Universities And Private Universities What The Government Has Done To Promote Higher Education Among The People Of Germany Is That They Have Made Tuition Fee Completely Free For Their Public Universities So If You Do Join A Public University You Will Not Have To Pay Any Tuition Fees Obviously There Is A Small Amount You Need To Pay A Semester Contribution Which Generally Ranges From 100 Euros To 350 Euros Which If You Convert To Inr Is Somewhere Between 8 000 Rupees To 30 000 Rupees Per Semester And This Amount Is Very Less When You Compare It To Your Education Costs In Singapore And U.s Which Ranges Somewhere Between 10 To 12 Lakhs Per Semester

Various Course Options

Another Great Thing I Like About German Universities Is The Option To Choose From A Variety Of Courses Just Because You’re Taking Your Degree In Mechanical Engineering Say For Example It Doesn’t Mean That You Have To Take All Your Courses From Mechanical Engineering Only You Can Sit In A Philosophy Class Or Even An Arts Class If You Want And I Feel That’s The Beauty Of These Programs Where You Get To Explore So Many Different Things And See What Else Interests You Also You Meet People From Varied Interests And You Learn So Much From Them In The Process

Job Opportunities

Another Important Thing That We Consider When Choosing Countries Is The Availability Of Job Opportunities After Graduation Germany Is The Fourth Largest Economy In The World And Therefore Plenty Of Job Options Are Available Particularly Germany Is Famous For Its Mechanical And Automotive Sectors With Brands Like Bmw Mercedes-benz Audi Porsche All Originating In Germany Otherwise Germany Is Also Known For Its Chemical Industries And Solar Power Plants The Government Is Investing Heavily In R D And So There’s Lot Of Research Happening Both In Government Institutes And Private Organizations As Well So You Do Have Multiple Positions Open For A Research Career And Obviously With Advancements In Tech You Have Positions Open For Data Science Aiml And Other Tech Roles As Well

Visa Availability

The Next Thing I Would Like To Talk To You About Is The Visa Availability In Germany After You Graduate If We Take The Example Of U.s Even If You Get A Job There Getting An H-1b Visa Is Crazy There’s A Lottery System And It’s Becoming More And More Difficult To Work In U.s With Every Passing Year If We Take The Example Of Singapore The Government Is Constantly Increasing The Minimum Salary Requirement To Get An Employment Pass To Work In Singapore On The Other Hand If You Get A Job In Germany Then You Can Apply For A German Residence Permit Or An Eu Blue Card After Two Years Of Working You Can Apply For A Permanent Residence Permit And After Eight Years You Can Apply For Citizenship If You Have Completed Your Studies From Germany For Example Done Your Masters From There It Increases Your Chances To Get Citizenship

U.s Getting Citizenship

If We Consider U.s Getting Citizenship For An Indian Right Now Is Next To Impossible And For Singapore Getting A Pr Itself That Is Permanent Residence Itself Has Become Very Difficult Forget Citizenship So If One Of The Reasons Why You Are Planning To Study Abroad Is To Settle Abroad As Well Then Germany Is A Great Option For You To Consider Now One Thing A Lot Of People Have Questioned About Is The Language Barrier Will The Courses Be Taught In German How Will I Cope Up Do I Have To Learn The Language Even Before I Reach There So This Is Where Germany Offers Another Advantage

English language for Education

All The Courses Are Taught In English So When It Comes To Your Degree You Will Not Face Any Problem And You Also Don’t Need To Learn German Before You Reach There But My Suggestion To You Would Be That It’s Always Better To Learn The Language Of The Land Because It Helps You In Communicating Easily With The Locals And Also Making New Friends So All You Need To Do Is Once You Reach Germany You Can Enroll Yourself In A German Language Course And Make Sure You Reach A Proficiency Level Up To B1 This Will Also Help You Get A Job Easily Later On

Cost of Living

Now Coming To Another Important Point Which Is Cost Of Living The Cost Of Living In Germany Is Euro 10332 Per Year Or Euro 861 Per Month Why Am I Giving You Such An Exact Number Is Because Once You Get An Admission In A German University You’re Supposed To Put This Money In A Blogged Account To Show The University To Show The Government That You Will Be Able To Support Yourself To Study In Germany Once You Reach Germany You Can Access This Account And Pay For Your Living Expenses If You Convert This Amount To Inr It Is 9 Lakh Rupees Roughly In A Year Or Rupees 75 000 Per Month When You Compare This With Other European Countries It Is Definitely Cheaper And When You Compare It With U.s And Singapore It Is Comparable So Considering The Fact That You Don’t Have To Pay Any Tuition Fees And This Is The Only Expense That You Have It Is Pretty Affordable

Availability of Scholarships

Now If You Don’t Even Want To Pay For Your Living Expenses This Is Where Germany Offers Another Great Advantage Which Is Availability Of Scholarships In Germany Plenty Of Scholarships Are Available For Students Like Erasmus Mundus Program Or The Eit Digital Masters School Where Your Living Expenses Are Also Taken Care Of Now If We Compare This With U.s And Singapore Scholarship Options Are Very Limited And They Are Also Very Difficult To Get Into So This Is Again A Place Where Germany Offers A Fantastic Advantage

International Exposure

Now One Of The Reasons Why We Study In An International University Is Because Of The International Exposure Right Germany Is Great That Way You Will Have Plenty Of Opportunities To Interact With Local And International Students In The Form Of Projects And Class Assignments And If You Learn German It Helps You Get Absorbed Easily In The Local Culture This Is Something I Appreciated About Singapore As Well People Were Very Friendly But This Is Not Something You Will Experience In The Us If You Go To Study In The U.s Then Indians Generally Hang Out With Indians And There’s No International Mixing Of Students As Such

Safety

Another Reason Why You Should Study In Germany Is Because Of The Safety Whether It Is Day Or Night You Can Have That Peace Of Mind That You’re Going To Be Safe And Nothing Is Going To Happen To You This Kind Of Safety I Also Enjoyed In Singapore But This Is Not Something You Will Find In The U.s Where You Hear About Gunshots And Thefts All The Time Also During This Pandemic Germany Was Actually Ranked As The Second Safest Country In The World After Switzerland So This Is Again Something You Should Consider When Choosing Countries To Study In

Travelling

And Finally When You’re In Germany You Can Travel Like Crazy Germany Itself Is A Lot Of Beautiful And Iconic Places You Can Visit Like Berlin Munich Frankfurt But With The Student Visa Of Germany You Have Access To The Whole Of Europe Where You Can Travel To The Nearby Countries Like Netherlands Denmark France Switzerland And Tick Mark All Of Them From Your Travel List So If Any Of The Above Options Don’t Convince You Then I’m Sure This One Will So Guys That’s All I Wanted To Share With You Today Thank You.
