Five reasons to study in Germany

Quality of Life

High quality of life

Life in Germany is very good. If you study here, you will not only find Europe's most dynamic economy. Germany is also a very safe country, with a high standard of living, a rich cultural history and a very diverse population.


The country also has an excellent infrastructure at the centre of Europe as well as numerous opportunities for recreational activities.

Also, at university you can do much more than just study: you can join a university sports club or theatre group, or engage in social or political activities. You can also go to university parties, music festivals, to the cinema or to night clubs with other students. You will soon make friends and through them get to know the country where you are studying even better. You will find some tips about this on the “Make it in Germany” Web site under “Five steps to studying in Germany".
