General information

Germany has an extremely strong economy, and one of the reasons for this is the quality of its higher-education system. The German government is one of the world's largest investors in research and development, funding and supporting a wide variety of universities and their research facilities.

Consequently, many German universities focus on research and provide world-class, research-oriented education. The German government monitors and accredits universities so that students can be certain that their education is of a high standard.

Berlin itself is dynamic, cosmopolitan and offers a high quality of life through its diverse range of leisure activities, public green spaces and recreation areas. The city attracts people from across the world who live, study and work there. The Berlin labour market offers employees numerous interesting fields of work and opportunities for furthering their respective careers. The Berlin economy is characterised by its great diversity, with lively SMEs and dynamic start-up companies operating side by side with classic industrial firms. With 4 universities, 8 colleges, 3 art colleges and 18 private colleges, this is arguably one of the most creative, lively and diverse educational landscapes in Europe on offer to students.
