Germany ranks 1st among European countries

For the second year in a row Germany is the most attractive country for international students

A world class university education, a huge range of English programmes, moderate living costs and great career prospects - These are just a few of the reasons why Germany was deemed the most attractive European study destination for international students.

In a recent ranking by study.eu, Germany was once again named the most attractive study destination for international students in Europe. As in the previous year, the authors of the study put a particular emphasis on the following factors: Education, Cost as well as Life & Career. In all of these areas Germany received excellent marks and the country was therefore able to keep the top position for the second year in a row.

International students in Germany benefit from a high-quality tertiary education system with plenty of English study programmes to choose from. Compared to other European countries, Students can also expect moderate living costs and relatively low rental prices while still enjoying a high quality of life.

After completing their studies, international graduates from German universities have the opportunity to apply for an 18-month residence permit that allows them to find a job in Germany. The low unemployment rate for university graduates and further career options in Germany, such as the EU Blue Card, make a university education in Germany a perfect investment for any international student.
