Top universities in Germany
2015- One of the most internationalized countries in the higher education sector, Germany promises high quality research oriented education at an affordable cost. In fact, affordable education is one of the biggest factors that attract students from all over the world to its shore.

The state universities provide free education for all, which also includes international students. Even prior to abolition of university tuition fees, students studying in Germany had to pay a minimal tuition fee of EUR 500 per semester, which is nearly half of the monthly living expenses of a student studying in UK or USA.

Two of the important changes that have triggered Germany’s entry into the competitive international education arena are increasing the number of English oriented classes and the implementation of the unlimited work and residence permit which grants foreign graduates of German universities unrestricted access to the job market. After obtaining a degree from Germany, one can stay there for up to 1.5 years to look for suitable employment.

With over 40 universities in the World University Rankings 2015, Germany maintains its consistent performance in the league tables. The Technische Universität München has replaced Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München as the top university of Germany 2015 according to both Times Higher Education (THE) and QS.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 23rd Mar, 2020

hi,

see some of the university of Germany like Technical university munich accepts gate score and you also need to have ielts or toefel or gre depends on university recruitment. most of the top ranked university has scholarship schemes for foreign students and it will cover your tuition fees, but the food and rent for housing is costly and you may need to do part time work for financial support. totals expenses around 30-50k per month.

How to get admission as well as scholarship to acquire PHD in art history from either Germany or italy?

Vagisha Aggarwal 15th Mar, 2020

Hello Aspirant

I would suggest that you first decide the university where you want to pursue your PHD in art history, study about its fees structure, prospects etc.

Then you contact the college by mail as colleges abroad are very responsive. Ech college has a separate application criteria for PDH students therefore you'll have to apply individually.

As for scholarship, they have scholars programs were you submit your application along with a few other details like family background etc which are required. Then they will shortlist people for scholarship after considering their applications and most probably will take an interview too.

But if your application is so good, sometimes the university offers good scholarships without filling any form also as they want to come and study in their university.

I am studying my class 12 from nios board and with regular schooling . so, will i be eligible to study b.tech in computer science from Germany ?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 5th Mar, 2020

hi,

see the national institute of open schooling is a recognized education board of  india, however before applying to any foreign university you need  to check their eligibility criteria and qualifying marks details, since nios is a recognized education board and run by central government , students are eligible to take admission and many foreign universities accept nios certificate.

hi, i have completed my UG in mechanical engg in 2013 with 65% .now i wish to study MS in germany thereitself.is that possible to do with high band score of IELTS or any other extra qualification they need ?

Shivangi Kumari 29th Feb, 2020
Hello,
The first and the basic requirement for master's degree in Germany is a relevant bachelor's degree from a recognised university that you already had. But the second most important thing that comes is minimum 75% marks in your Undergraduate degree or CGPA 7.5/10 . Then only you will be ablt to sit in the entrance examinations. German universities  accepts IELTS exam results with a minimum score of 6.5 out of 9. Therefore you really need to work hard.
There is one more way to get admission by submitting your TOEFL score which should be over 90.

Hope this helps !

Considering Im just a 12th pass (96%), how do I study Abroad? Which country would be economical? What about Germany? Should I write IELTS this week? Should I learn German for studying in Germany? Please clarify about SAT, its Subject tests and Advanced Placements exams? What are the requirements?

Fareeha 2nd Mar, 2020

Hey there!

First things first, shortlist the countries you plan on pursuing your grad from. Then make a list of schools in those countries, which provide you the course of your interest.

Germany is a very good place for higher studies, along with other European Countries like Italy and Venice. The courses are almost free if you get the scholarships.

And no, you need not study German before hand, you just need to know the basics in order to survive in a foreign land. Also, they will provide you with a one year of foundation course during your first year, where they will teach your German.

Before attempting the IELTS, please look up the requirements of the college which you plan on attempting. Some colleges accept IELTS scores, while some accept TOEFL and some accept both. Also, kindly prepare for the exam properly before attempting. Considering the English eligibility exams takes place every week, take a little preparation time before attempting it. Also, you will have to give the SATs too for taking admission in grad programs.

Hope this helps.
