Higher Study in Germany

Going to UK for education? Higher studies in Germany & France may be cheaper & easier

Ishani Duttagupta, ET Bureau

(Germany too is wooing Indian…)

During his state visit to India in February, French president FrancoisHollande unveiled a plan to increase the number of Indian students studying in France by 50% in the next five years. Ambitious? Perhaps, but not unrealistic.

After all, the country did achieve that target last year - in 2012, almost 2, 600 Indian students opted for higher education in France, a jump of 50% over the previous year. In 2013, this ease to 3, 000.

The French government, Campus France - the national agency for the promotion of higher education, international student services and international mobility - is going all out to lay out the red carpet for Indian students.

Today ( July 14), France will launch a unique five-year circulation visa in the Schengen area which will be issued to Indian graduates of French institutions of higher learning for both business and tourism purposes. The scheme includes all present alumni — the 10, 000 Indian nationals who've graduated from French institutions.

"We expect this [visa] will convince many students to apply to French institutions. Not only will it help them maintain networks they have built during their studies, it will also be a great asset in their professional life, " says Caroline Gueny-Mentre, attache for scientific and university co-operation, Campus France.

Further, Indian students can stay on for six months after graduating to look for employment in France in their line of work. Once hired, a long-stay work permit is readily obtainable with the help of the company.

Continental Shift

These steps are proving to be a huge advantage for France in view of the declining popularity of the once most-popular destination in Europe for Indian students — the UK. Since April 2012, the UK discontinued the two-year post-study work route for international non-European Union (EU) students.

How much Co2 does uranium mining produce?

by nonukesgal

In a case study in Germany, the Oko-Institute determined that 34 grams of CO2 are emitted per generated kilowatt (kWh).
Other international research studies show much higher figures (up to 60 grams of CO2 per kWh).
In comparison to renewable energy, energy generated from nuclear power releases 4-5 times more CO2 per unit of energy produced, taking into account the entire nuclear fuel cycle.
While electricity generated from nuclear power does not directly emit carbon dioxide (CO2), the nuclear fuel cycle does release CO2 during mining, fuel enrichment and plant construction

Not to mention the rigor and expectation in

by TheMrsBradPitt

Germany for german students is significantly higher.
When you are in elementary school, you don't just have one teacher that covers everything, it's like junior high... you have a math teacher, a language/lit teacher. social studies teacher, science teacher, etc. People who are SKILLED in their subject and like their subject. Way too many people go into elementary ed in our country because they don't like math... and then they are expected to teach math??? with a positive attitude? Recent study showed how important early math skills relate strongly to math success, and the earlier you get those skills, the better.

Be glad you don't live in europe

If finances are important.
If the European Union were a state in the USA it would belong to the poorest group of states. France, Italy, Great Britain and Germany have lower GDP per capita than all but four of the states in the United States. In fact, GDP per capita is lower in the vast majority of the EU-countries (EU 15) than in most of the individual American states. This puts Europeans at a level of prosperity on par with states such as Arkansas, Mississippi and West Virginia. Only the miniscule country of Luxembourg has higher per capita GDP than the average state in the USA. The results of the new study represent a grave critique of European economic policy
