Here's Why I Decided to Study in Germany Not UK or USA

Raghuram Sukumar Study in Germany 5 Comments

study in germany In my Bachelor’s (Biotechnology), I was never to sure what to study in future whether to go for jobs or go for higher studies.

But in my final semester I had found a job and decided to continue with job. This company was one of the biggest in India.

After one and half-year, I realized that I can do better than working in a Biotech company.

So, I decided to apply for higher education. After taking a good look at the conditions in India, I decided to Study Abroad.

I wanted to study outside India and I had already have given GRE test with a score more than 1100 and acceptable score in TOEFL.

USA vs Europe

I was sure to get a admit in an US university. But,  I did some research about US universities and the education system in US.

I found out the challenge to work in a research field and the future research work was done more in European countries than in US. So I decided to apply in Europe. Only options, I had in Europe was UK and Germany.

I had a lot of admits from UK universities and from few German universities. In the end I decided against UK and selected to study in Germany.

Why Study in Germany?

German Universities universities was attractive to me because of the environment they wanted to give their international students.

This environment is really world-class and is one of the reason I decided to move to Germany for further education.

Believe me German people are smart with wonderful minds. I respect that plus German government provides some amazing facilities to the students. I will post few other advantages of studying in Germany in my future posts.

  1. Nice post, but can you tell about the language used over there? Do they entirely teach in english in an english medium course? or they use german in between while they teach? Is it hard to adjust in that country? Is Germany safe for students? How much is the cost of doing masters in Germany? I think they have all of their programs of 2 year duration, is there any program of 1 year? I am interested in doing masters in electronic and electrical or telecommunication, so does these courses have a good opportunity in Germany?

    I know these are a lot of questions but please try to answer them.

    1. There is answer to all your questions (except your last question) in related post by HSB available on links present in the end of the above article.

  2. Not a concrete matter. However, I am expecting to receive something worthwhile, noteworthy, and unique aspects that clearly differentiate Germany from other popular/conventional study destination for masters. Further, vague and rather evidence deficit statements like.. “This environment is really world-class…”, “German government provides some amazing facilities to the students.” only tarnishes your article. Certainly, you may want tell me “TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT !!”, but I am writing this only to help you (so that you post interesting and true matter), me (because I am also interested to do masters in Germany in microelectronics) and other readers like me who plan to do masters in Germany. Also, I would appreciate if your article is generic so that it address to a large audience (and not merely to Biotech specific readers). I hope you are convinced with my comments.
