Germany is the third most popular destination among international students in the world.


Universities in Germany offer plenty of choice, including some of the most prestigious institutions in Western Europe. Germany’s highest ranked university in the QS World University Rankings® 2015/16 is Technische Universität München (ranked 60th in the world), followed by Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (66th) and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (75th).

Beyond that, every major German city you can think of has at least one university ranked among the world’s best. A total of 16 German universities make the world’s top 250, and 35 are included within the world’s top 500. This establishes Germany well within the world’s higher education elite.

In addition to world-class universities, Germany also offers high quality of life, relatively low tuition fees, extensive support and scholarship schemes for international students, and decent post-graduation employment prospects. So it’s easy to see why so many choose to study in Germany each year.
