With more than 300 higher education institutions across the country, Germany has a density of universities which is practically unequalled around the world. Many German higher education institutions offer courses leading to an international degree. The range of study opportunities covers undergraduates, graduate and postgraduate degree courses (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD levels). Nearly all German universities and colleges are financed by the state. So far, German and international students have been able to pursue their studies and research without having to worry about tuition fees. This situation is changing now; universities in Germany are starting to introduce tuition fees. However, these fees will be considerably lower than in other countries. The cost of living for students in Germany can be kept low by using many of the student benefits and discounts
The German government is one of the world's biggest investors in research and development. It funds and supports a wide variety of universities and their research facilities. 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. Germany has one of the strongest economies in the European Union. Due to the present economic boom in Germany, the demand for qualified manpower is rapidly increasing. According to new statistics, the shortage of professionals with qualifications in engineering, the sciences and mathematics has increased to 117,000. The German government sees no chance to recruit enough qualified young people from the domestic population. It has, therefore, plans to make the present, already liberal stay-back options even more attractive to study graduates from abroad.
