Germany, a land of innovation, invention and ideas is the most preferred destination for foreign students. International standards in education, science and research play a central role in making the country one of the knowledge hubs of Europe.
The country has one of the world’s best and most extensive school and university systems. Internationally recognized qualifications and comparatively lower costs of education are the two key factors that allure students from all corners of the world.
Internationally, Germany is one of the most popular countries (along with the USA and the UK) for students from all over the world to take admissions. The Heidelberg University, University of Berlin, University of Bremen, University of Leipzig, Frankfurt University, etc. are some of the best centers of education in the world. As per the Basic Law or the Constitution, the education system in Germany is the responsibility of the individual state governments. Thus, German universities and institutes are run by the individual federal states.
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is the body in charge of educational planning, research promotion and the entire system of higher learning. It acts as a sponsor for young academics, talented persons and also for the exchange programs for trainees, students and academics.
