Germany is an increasingly attractive study destination since international qualifications such as Bachelor and Master degrees are offered, as well as courses taught in English and a system which makes allowance for the accumulation and transfer of attendance credits and examination passes.

Facts about the German higher education system
From welcome breakfasts to friendship programmes, German universities come up with lots of interesting ways of making it easier for international students to settle into their new surroundings. The DAAD offers them a combined scholarship and support programme (STIBET), which is funded by the Federal Foreign Office. It supports introductory events and country evenings as well as specialist support for foreign doctoral students. Projects like Die Brücke (The Bridge) in Münster have developed their own special approaches and act as examples for other universities.
