We owe a lot to Germany when it comes to the history of education and universities. Germany is the birthplace of what we call ‘research universities’ – big places with ivory towers and libraries where new knowledge is produced every day. This university model has since covered the entire planet, and is basically what most universities are set up for today: to produce knowledge and make new discoveries. Don’t you want to be in the place where all of that began? Throughout Germany, you have a wide variety of subjects and careers to pursue. If you want to be at the forefront of engineering, technological advances, and scientific discovery, then Germany has several university options that can satisfy your interests. You’ll find that some of the smartest people on the planet come to Germany to introduce new ideas and establish technology companies. You’ll also notice a long, rich history of art, music, and literature all throughout Germany. You can enjoy a trip to the opera, visit a historic museum, and collect giant beer mugs, all in one day!
