Yes!, recently an increase of 70% has been witnessed in enrollment of Indian students at German Education institutions since the academic year 2008, revealed the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
Almost around 5998 Indian students were studying in German Country last year and in 2010-11 it was 5038. On the whole it raised from 244776 in 2009-10 to 252032 in 2010-11. Well that's the increase in just one year. This shows the trend of 'Study Abroad' that is running high in our nation.
According to a spokesperson- Schlottmann, "Stringent visa regulations, limited or non-existent employment opportunities in the host country after graduation and social threats in the traditionally opular destinations are some of the factors behind the changing trend".
"Even during the recent world economic recession, Germany has sustained as the economic superpower, thereby providing easy access to international job market. The adoption of the EU Blue Card as a new work and residence permit has already started showing positive results and I believe it will further bolster this trend", he added.
Other few reasons that make Germany the most popular destination for International students in Europe include, over 1000 international degree programmes (IDP) taught in English, highly subsidized tuition fees, quality of education, scholarships and above all these its Social Security.
