You pay very low tuition fees – and sometimes none at all!
Students normally don’t have to pay tuition fees at German universities, and if so, the fees are very low. Most German universities receive considerable financing from the government. Bachelor’s degree programs are usually tuition-free at public universities. Some master’s degree programs, however, come with tuition fees, but they’re not as high as in other countries.

Diverse range of study opportunities!

German universities offer degree programs in every possible subject and academic level – be it bachelor’s, master’s, state examinations, or doctoral degrees. General universities focus strongly on a scientifically oriented study in a wide range of disciplines. Universities of applied science, on the other hand, are very practice-oriented. If you’re more interested in artistic subjects, you can enroll at a college of art, film, or music.
You live in a safe country!
Germany is a safe country – also on an international scale. The police are reliable and help you in every situation. Whether you live in a big city or in the country, you can move freely day or night without having to take any special precautions.
