More about Education in Germany

Although it more than delivers on beer, Lederhosen and sausages, there are so many more reasons to study abroad in Germany. Documented as ‘Germania’ as early as 100AD, the leading proponent of the Protestant Reformation during the 16th century, carved up and reunified in the aftermath of the Second World War, Germany is intrinsically a product of its tumultuous history. Germany in the 21st century is a major power with the world’s fourth largest economy existing at the heart of Europe both literally and figuratively – it was a founding member of the European Economic Community and the European Union and remains highly influential within both bodies.

Continuously the home of influential and successful writers, artists, philosophers, musicians, scientists, engineers and sportspeople, few countries have had as much impact on the world as Das Land der Dichter und Denker  (‘The Land of Poets and Thinkers’), and an education in Germany places you right in the center of this veritable nerve center of economy, industry and culture.
