Strong German economy

The German economy is Europe´s strongest. It is the European leader in terms of growth, employment and export. It grew by more than 3% in 2010, an estimated 2.6% in 2011 and is forecast to keep growing strongly in 2012. This has created a record boom in employment. Skilled professionals are in demand, creating enormous employment and career opportunities.

International orientation

Germany's location at the centre of Europe means that it is oriented to international markets. German products are admired around the world.The level of its openness (relation of exports and imports to the GNP) rose from 55% to 80% between 1995 und 2010. Our economy is export driven and thousands of German companies enjoy relationships across the world – offering career opportunities to international students.

Brandenburger TorExtra opportunities due to demographic shift

Like most of Europe, Germany has a huge demographic problem. The birth rate is declining and a shortage of well-trained professionals is emerging. This is expected to accelerate after 2015. This is your chance! German companies are successfully established in all corners of the globe and will be looking for new employees the moment you graduate.

Immigration perspectives to Germany and the European Union

Due to this shortage of skilled professionals, the German government has relaxed its immigration laws. Graduates of German universities now have the right to stay in Germany to find work in the year after their graduation. After working for three years they receive a permanent work and residence permit. You can find more information about obtaining a work permit in Germany in the "migration check" section of the federal employment agency website.

U.S. Ranked Low in Math Literacy
Breaking It Down: Why Johnny Can't Do Math
Dec. 11, 2004 -- The biggest, baddest, richest country in the world. That's the way a lot of Americans like to think of the United States. But will it stay that way?
No. Not if a new international report is any indication. It made front-page news everywhere.
In a study of how good 15-year-olds are in math, the "big, bad" USA ranked 24 out of 29 countries. That's behind the Czech Republic. Behind New Zealand. Twenty-fourth out of 29!
That is whack! The study also suggests U.S. public schools, when it comes to math education, have been seriously "out of whack" for a long time

FAQ

International student, and a bit worried?

As an Egyptian undergraduate student, would Spain or Germany be a good place for me? I'm talking in terms or racism, safety, fair job opportunities, etc. No offence intended!
