University Preparatory Education

Germany is the most popular country in the world, whose native language is not English, and is the country that attracts the most foreign students after the USA, the UK and Australia. So, what attracts foreign students to German universities that are so attractive, and how can we choose and apply for a German university? In Germany, the language of university education is generally German, except for some universities, and students must pass the Test Daf exam before they can start the university directly. The education period is 3 years for many states and universities. Students who do not have the knowledge of German that will pass the Test Daf exam must have an extra 1 year foundation education. The level of German required for this training is pre-intermediate.

Living Conditions and Accommodation in Germany

Germany is a country that can be characterized by the best diversity word. Trendy and modern-looking Berlin offers a very different atmosphere than the more traditional and conservative-looking Munich. Frankfurt is a complete contrast with Heidelberg, which has a bit of antique beauty with its gleaming skyscrapers. If the crowded and fast-paced Hamburg tires you, you can always retreat to the central Rhine region, where you can breathe a peaceful environment.
