Why Germany?

Germany is the largest economy in Europe and was recently ranked as the safest country in Europe. It has high employment rates and a shortage of experts and professionals. This makes Germany one of the best places for graduates and an attractive destination for international students. It also offers an 18-month job search visa to non-EU citizens after successful graduation.

Germany is well-known for its excellent education system and has some of the best universities in the world. As one of the world leaders in scientific and technological innovation, Germany is constantly striving to advance its education system to train the workforce of tomorrow.

Furthermore, nature lovers are never far away from beautiful green parks, lakes and rivers.
