Your Career with Germany
Welcome and short greeting speech

1) What you need to know before you study in Germany tuition free
by Norlis Simaa Mohd Ali, DAAD Kuala Lumpur, German Academic Exchange Office

The educational system plays a crucial role. Germany’s wealth relies entirely on the innovative potential and the dynamic of its companies. It is thus hardly surprising that Germany attaches great significance to education and learning as well as to research and development. As opposed to many other countries, Germans strongly believe that education is not business. As a consequence, German universities generally do not charge tuition fees.
