Germany has been recorded to have the highest number of Indian students studying. It has been estimated that over 42,000 students, which is a 25 per cent rise within a year moved to Germany for higher education. This news comes from German Ambassador to India Philipp Ackermann.
In order to keep up with these numbers of Indian students who every year are moving to Germany, the Germany Embassy’s Academic Evaluation Centre has come up with a decision. The decision says that it would replace the mandate for paper-printed certificates with digital certificates.
But what is the reason behind so many students shifting to Germany? Is it easy to go to Germany? Today, we will be answering all these questions.
Why Germany Has So Many Indians?
Indian students in Germany make up the third largest group of foreigners studying at higher education institutes (HEIs).
As per a research report by Deutsche Bank, for Germany, India is considered to be the No.1 source of talent. This is as per the rate of immigration which is growing so fast.
That day isn’t far away when India will become Deuschland’s biggest source of immigrants.
Research indicates that more than 75 per cent of first-semester students are already attending a mix of online and physical classes in Germany.
It has also been noted that the maximum number of traffic of international students comes from countries like India, Turkey, Iran, Italy and France.
Another reason why Germany is mostly considered by Indian students is due to the affordable education which it provides. It lets students zero to no tuition fees.
Last year, India and Germany signed a contract that would replace the mandate for paper-printed certificates with digital certificates. It also facilitated the two-way movement of students, professionals and researchers. It also addressed the challenges of illegal migration.
Eligibility Criteria To Keep in Mind
All those Indian students interested in studying in Germany should make a note of these common university entry requirements:
- The student must have a list of previous qualifications (not all course certificates will be accepted so be prepared to do bridging courses).
- Grade transcripts
- Scores of language proficiency tests.
- Scores from additional tests such as GRE, GMAT
- Lastly, a CV and a proper resume.
