Hey there,
Is there any possibilities for a fully funded scholarships or atleast a monthly stipends undergraduate degree abroad? For business or international relations course.

My name is Siyabonga and I am originally from South Africa. I am currently in the 11th grade(the year before my final academic year in high school) in my country. I am currently in Germany for a short while as an exchange student and I wanted to find out more information about applying at German Universities as an international student. I have no prior teaching/knowledge of German as German is not offered as a subject at my school, but I am willing to learn the language so that I can be admitted into a university here in Germany. I would like to know which institutions offer Medicine in English. There is about a year left, so I would like to gather as much information about applying at a university in Germany as possible,so that I can have enough information in order to start preparing my marks.

Yours in need

Hi Siyabonga, you can study medicine for free in Germany, but will need to possess a very good knowledge of the German language as no English-taught courses are available. You can find out more about the requirements and how to apply here, and our complete guide on how to study abroad in Germany should also be useful for getting you started. Hope this helps!
