Study in Germany Options

Although many Malaysians are considering the possibility of studying in Germany, the application procedure is much more complicated and students must be fluent in a foreign language, which adds to the difficulty of the procedure. Fear not! We are here to help you get through all the procedures together. Let’s get started!

#1 WHY GERMANY?

AFFORDABLE EDUCATION

Tuition is free to attend any public institution in the country, with the exception of Baden-Württemberg, which charges just €3,000 a year.

LOW COST OF LIVING WITH HIGH LIVING STANDARDS

The cost of living in Germany is on average €861 per month, but it varies by region and way of life. Although true, this sum is still considerably less than that of many other nations given Germany's high standard of living.

HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER BY EMPLOYERS WORLDWIDE

Stay in Germany for up to 18 months after graduating will give you the opportunity to search for a job in Germany or even German companies worldwide, such as SAP, Mercedes-Benz, Bosch, Siemens, and more.
