Home to 82 million inhabitants, Germany is a land of diverse beauty, historical splendour and state-of-the-art innovation. If you are looking to fulfil your Alpine fantasies then the country’s bewitching scenery is sure to satisfy, and those drawn to Germany’s cities will experience the new pinnacle of cool in Europe. Tradition coexists with techno in these pulsating centres of culture and counterculture where you can gorge on Bratwurst and Stollen cake by day and sweat in industrial clubs by night.
A global forerunner in industry and technology, Germany is a highly developed country with an excellent standard of living and a social market economy widely considered to be one of the most efficient in the world. Germany is also known the world-over for its cultural contributions – you will find everything from the high-brow to the underground across the nation’s sixteen dynamic states. From the beer halls of Bavaria to the industrial heartland of Westphalia, undertaking your education in Germany provides the ultimate opportunity to experience a corner of Europe which is both old-world and à la mode.
Continuously the home of influential and successful writers, artists, philosophers, musicians, scientists, engineers and sportspeople, few countries have had as much impact on the world as Das Land der Dichter und Denker (‘The Land of Poets and Thinkers’), and an education in Germany places you right in the center of this veritable nerve center of economy, industry and culture.
