Germany the Powerhouse of Europe
Germany is the Fourth largest economy in the World and third largest exporter of goods with a very high standard of living and social security for its population of 83 million people.
It is one of the few countries in which unemployment rates have declined continuously, its labour market continues to go strong, with the unemployment rate remaining at its lowest level since the reunification of the country in 1990.
What sets Germany apart is the type of products that it manufactures. Germany exports a large portion of the world’s most complex products to manufacture. It holds a significant advantage over other European countries that do not specialize in the production of these products.
A highly skilled labour work force, low levels of corruption, focus on the future and an emphasis on innovation, energy and technology has made it the Largest Economy in Europe.
A ranking of European countries based on their attractiveness for foreign students released on Wednesday handed Germany the top spot.
When students think about studying in a foreign country, their destination of choice tends to be either the United Kingdom or the United States, the two countries with the best universities according to most rankings. A study argues that Germany is now the best option for international students studying in Europe, it ranked 30 European countries according to three categories: education, costs, and life and career.
Germany came on top with a total score of 83.2 out of 100 – far ahead of the UK, which was scored at 69.8.
More and more foreign students are choosing to study in Germany, based on the fact that it has the lowest graduate unemployment rate in Europe, and that there are no tuition fees.
Cost of education is another factor which made Germany stand. While tuition fees have been abolished in Germany, the UK had the most expensive tuition of all the 30 countries analysed.
Germany has one of the highest levels of upper secondary education with 86% of the country’s population have obtained at least an upper secondary qualification. Vocational qualifications are common in Germany. Nearly one in two upper secondary students is enrolled in vocational programmes (dual system) that combine school and work.
There also seems to be a fairly seamless path in Germany from graduating to employment. Only 2.3 percent of people with a degree in Germany are unemployed, the lowest on the continent.
Germany is in need for young students due to a negative birth rate combined with a high median age of 45 years, therefore it offers an 18 month stay back visa to students to help them get jobs.
These factors make Germany the second most popular immigration destination in the world, we at EduOptions Germany are providing guidance to students for their studies in Germany.
The connection between India and Germany in the fields of renewable energy, manufacturing, automobiles and education, the strong presence of German Companies in Pune and excellent government ties will help students for years to come.
