2. Select the language of your course - Most courses in Germany are taught in both English and German.

However most international students prefer to get the best of both worlds by opting for a high standard German course in a language you are comfortable with.

3. Look at the ratings of the university - It is important for students who will apply to Study in Germany, to check the ratings as well as the rankings of the university that they are planning to apply to. It is well worth knowing the conditions of the classroom as well as other infrastructure. There are a number of independent agencies as well as government websites that provide students with details about the study conditions in different universities in Germany.

4. Consider the Location of the university - One of the most important factors in your choice of a university in Germany would be the location. If you are a student from India, then you would want to apply for universities in cities like Berlin or Cologne where there is a sizeable Indian community and you would be able to procure Indian food without much trouble.

5. Consider the Admission intake period - In Germany, different universities have different intake periods. Some universities accept new students only for the summer semester, while others do so only for winter. Some universities even accept students for both the semesters.

6. Take a look at the costs and funding options - The cost of tuition as well as the cost of living while you pursue your course of Study in Germany, would be a major factor in deciding which university you want to go with. The cost of tuition can be offset by choosing to go with public universities, which offer free tuition. But even in this case you would need to bear incidental expenses such as cost of books, rent costs, groceries and other living expenses.

If you are an outstanding student and can prove your merit with superior scores then you can apply for a DAAD scholarship or a university scholarship to help ease the burden on your purse-strings.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.
