Germany’s 83 million inhabitants make it the most populous country in Europe, boasting the fourth largest economy in the world. Although blessed with a long and colorful history and a rich contemporary culture, Germany is also a very modern country and one of the safest places to live. The comprehensive public health system provides for superior health care for all of its inhabitants at a very moderate cost which you will be able to benefit from during your stay.

Unlike in other countries, living on campus is not mandatory in Germany. Although many students live in dedicated student residence halls, it is also possible to rent out a privately-owned apartment alone or together with classmates. Getting around is also very easy and convenient. Every German city is equipped with an integrated public transport system, and high-speed train networks make it a breeze to travel across the country. And students often receive special discounts at theaters, museums, festivals, and the like!
