Learn German and study in Germany!

DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service

Germany is famous for having one of the strongest economies in the world. Products “Made in Germany”, like cars, chemicals, engineering products, environmental technology, are valued for their high quality, making Germany one of the world’s leading export countries.
What is the key to Germany’s economic success? It is the educational system that 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.
A distinctive feature of many German universities is their very close cooperation with the industry and one of the peculiar characteristics of the German higher education system is the fact that it is mostly state-financed. As opposed to many other countries, Germans strongly believe that education is not a business. As a consequence, German universities generally do not charge tuition fees.

And by the way: Graduates from a German university have easy access to the German employment market.
