    Dear,

    Over some time back, studying abroad vividly referred to education in US. Off late along with other destinations like Australia, UK, Singapore, Germany is emerging as a favorite spot for people willing to pursue their higher studies. The place has overcome and is till working towards motivation international applicants.

    Technology: Ever since the dawn of modern engineering, Germany is known for its technological innovation. The technology that rooted out of the German soil is considered to be one of the best in the world. German companies are on hike not only nationally but also internationally.

    Top Ranking universities: Many of the technical universities such as TU Darmstadt, TU Karlsruhe, RWTH Aachen etc., rank very high in the list of "World ranking for the best technical institutes".

    International Degree: Previously the hitch that kept the international students off bay was the mode of education just being in German. Due to the growing demand and huge in-flow of foreign crowd, the universities have comfortably switched to English taught courses and hence has increased the flow of international applicants.

    Flexibility of the Course Duration: Since the education system is split into "practical oriented" study and "industry oriented" study, many German universities offer a 3 semester Masters course (1.5 years). Alternatively, there are also 4 semester Masters course (2 years) offered by many technical institutes. This is a huge advantage to people who would want to complete their Masters as soon as possible and head directly to the German industry to work.

    Strategic University Locations: The German universities are usually located in such strategic locations where the industry concentration predominant and the research hubs are easily reachable. This helps the industry-university interaction grow further and eventually to make the learning environment bidirectional.

    World Class Facilities: With the recent boom of international applicants, the laboratories and the research facilities toady meet the international standards.

    Subsidized Tuition Fee: One of the major advantages of studying in Germany is the "highly subsidized tuition fee". Earlier the German higher education was free of cost (the complete tuition fee was waived off to every student), though in the recent days the universities have started to charge a very nominal tuition fee The DAAD scholarship is yet another attractive option for the international applicant.

    Research Fundings: The research projects in the universities largely depend on the funding provided by three main sources: The German Government, the industry, The European Union (EU). Since all these three factors are largely unaffected by the external influences, the research funding for the projects have literally no bound. Hence Germany is indeed a Mecca for researchers from any discipline.

    Excellent Job opportunities: Germany is known for its industrial hub (Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart, Hannover, Bonn, etc.) Many world famous German companies such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen, Siemens, Bosch, SAP etc, provide excellent career opportunities to one and all, irrespective of their nationality. Thousands of supplier companies to these big giants also keep their doors open to the international talents.

    Hello Shaivya,

    Medical studies in Germany is competitive not just for international students but for German citizens as well because studying medicine is very popular among students and there are a lot more applicants than seats available. But, a certain amount of these places is reserved for Non-EU citizens.

    Generally, there are no special tests that you need to consider to be eligible for the medical schools in Germany. You however, need to suffice with the necessary certificates from previously attended academic institutions. At the most you might have to take a course in Germany, if the certificate is not equal to the German Abitur.

    If you have excellent grades then you stand a strong chance of make through the medical schools in Germany. If this is not the case, then you can opt to study something else in the meantime because many applicants have to wait approximately for three semesters till they get a place at medical school.

    As an international student you should apply directly to the university or through uni-assist, a service some universities use for their application process.

    Studying medicine at German universities is usually in German language and hence you might have to earn a language certificate like TestDaF or DSH. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that a successful language test leads to acceptance as a medical student.
    Medicine usually takes six years which equals twelve semester to complete including one year of practical training (semesters 11 and 12). Also, pre-medical study is not necessary.

    Now with regard to the fee expenses, if you able to get DAAD scholarship, then the study could be free for you. However, fees is also not expensive and is often minimal. Living expenses can be bit higher.

    To be eligible for a student visa, you must have already been accepted by a German university and received their admission letter. A range of documentation is needed to support German student visa applications, including proof of university admission, evidence of funds to support their stay, and proof of German language skills.

    I hope the above stated helps you with all the queries.

    Good luck!
