Germany, a modern great power and the land of opportunities! With a great history of industry, politics and economics, Germany is a nation to reckon with in the world. An independent nation running its trade and governing with poise, Germany has risen to be a great power of Europe.

Let us take a look of the sights and sounds of this great nation.

With the flags motto of unity and justice and freedom, Germany is an eighty million strong nation. An ever growing GDP and a rising value of the euro, Germany harbors some of the finest industries and workers of the world. The capital city of Berlin is the largest city of Germany.
Germany is the biggest economy in Europe and the third largest in the world, only after the United States and Japan. The export operations are the major revenue generator of Germany. Germany is the world's top exporter with $1.133 trillion exported, from the beginning of 2006. The aftermath of the reunification hasn't really faded away, with West Germany leading the way in most of the sectors. New government policies have emphasized on renewable sources of energy, bio mass, hydro and geothermal energy. Germany is slowly growing into a very balanced economy.
Germany, as a state that we know now was unified in 1871, when the German empire was forged, with the kingdom of Prussia as its largest continent. The empire was a unification of all the scattered parts of Germany except Austria, beginning in 1884, Germany started establishing colonies outside Europe. Germany's imperialism reached outside of its own country and joined many other powers in Europe to claim their share of Africa. 

The world wars had a major impact on Germany and for many set its future as a nation that harbored the Nazi party and its cruel perpetration on human life after the Second World War. The war resulted in death of millions of people across the country and eventually led to the division of Germany into the eastern and western fragments each with their own government policies and rules with varying economic and political practices. The contemporary world has witnessed the reunification of the west and the East Germany and the rebirth of a nation torn down with strife and separation. Germany is now a vast power growing consciously amidst the countries of the world.
Universities in Germany
Beyond that, every major city you can think of has at least one ranking university – and with 11 universities in the top 200, and a total of 42 making the rankings overall, you won’t struggle to find a quality institution. Many of these are newer establishments, which have climbed to the top in no time at all, demonstrating the strength of the German system.

Top it all off with a famously friendly and tolerant population, and decent prospects on graduation, and it’s easy to see why Deutschland is one of the most popular study abroad destinations in the world.

Many international students in Germany earn extra money with a part-time job. You are allowed to work a maximum of 120 full (or 240 half) days per year. We portray some of these working students from different German cities. They give you insights on payment, duties and requirements for the jobs they do.

If you wish to work in Germany after you've finished studying, you should start making plans while you're still a student. With a degree from a German university, numerous job opportunities are available to you as an international graduate on the German job market. These tips will help you get your career off to a successful start.

Students from non-EU countries are allowed to remain in Germany for the purpose of looking for employment for a maximum of 18 months after graduating. These 18 months pass quicker than you think, so it's important to start job hunting during the final semester of your degree, or at the latest "four months before finishing your studies," advises Maria-Theresia Jansen from the "Agentur für Arbeit" job agency in Bonn. As a member of a team of careers advisers specialising in academic professions, she has spent the last 30 years helping international graduates gain a foothold in the German employment market.

While you're looking for full-time employment, you're allowed to work as much as you like: According to a new Right of Residence regulation, there are no longer any time restrictions on working during the job search phase.


If you wish to undertake full-time study in a registered institution of higher education in Germany you need to obtain a student visa. The visa, which is granted initially for a period of up to three months by the German Embassy or Consulates General, permits the holder to enter Germany. Your visa will be extended by the competent Foreigner's Registration Office ("Ausländerbehörde") when you register within the first three months of your stay in Germany. The extension is done for one year at a time up to the duration of the course. A student visa is valid for multiple-entry. International students return to their home country on completion of their course of study. You are expected to fulfill all requirements and furnish all documents when applying for a visa. The application forms are available free of charge from the Consular Section of the German Embassy in New Delhi and the Consulates General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Chennai, Kolkata and Mumbai. For further questions and details contact the Embassy or Consulate General directly. 

Visa Fee: Germany Visa Fee has been changed to Rs.4100/- for Short term & Long term (Rs.4100/- for Adults & Rs.2100/- for Minor) from 7th January 2010. 

VISA ASSESSMENT - Applications will be assessed on the basis of the following criteria:

  • Evidence of enrolment: One of the essential requirements for a student visa application is that the applicant has been accepted or enrolled by a registered institution of higher education in Germany. This is proven by the admission letter ("Zulassungsbescheid") from the German institution.

  • Bona fides assessment: The bona fides assessment determines whether an applicant is a genuine student who intends to undertake studies in Germany, abide by visa rules and regulations and depart on completion of the course.

  • German Language: Whether the applicant's German language skills are adequate for the purpose of the proposed course, the relevance of the proposed course for the applicant's current academic and employment circumstances.

  • Adequate Financial Resources: This involves an assessment of the applicant's or the sponsor's ability to finance all cost of living expenses pertaining to the applicant's education in Germany. The approximate cost of living for a single person in Germany is EUR 650 per month. Students are not expected to fund their studies and living costs in Germany through part-time employment. Special conditions for student jobs apply.

  • Health Certificate: It is essential that the applicant meets the German health requirements. This involves the proof of a recent medical check-up and an X-ray. The medical certificate should clearly identify the person examined.
