Studying in Germany/Exchange programs
With more than 350 state and private universities and a colorful variety of courses. Germany is one of the leading countries in the field of research, science and technology.
About 250,000 foreign students currently study in Germany, of which about 4,200 are Indians. Most of the German universities are sponsored by the state to keep study-fees affordable, and the number of scholarships available keeps increasing. Over 500 International Degree Programmes (IDP) offer courses that are entirely or partly taught in English.
Last but not least: studies or research in Germany are a perfect way to get in touch with German companies who are all interested in employing top achievers. As German firms operate worldwide, careers with them are possible not only within Germany or India but all over the world.
Universities and "universities of applied sciences" (Fachhochschulen)
Depending on the type of education that is offered, there is a difference in Germany between universities and universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulen). Universities generally place more emphasis on science and research. Conversely, universities of applied sciences tend to prepare their students more directly for professional and practical work. In Indian context, you can compare universities of applied sciences with Polytechnic colleges.
There are Private Universities also which occasionally high tuition fees – around 1800 to 4700 euros per semester – they are becoming an alternative to studying at a state institution. But take care! If you are seriously considering studying at a private university, you must make sure that your check that it is state-recognised. Because without this state recognition, any academic degrees you gain will not be recognised, which could lead to major problems when you start looking for a job after graduating.
