A few tips for Students Going to Germany
It is a known fact that German is not the easiest language to learn, and many people live in Germany without ever trying to speak in German. *There’s even a saying that one lifetime is too short to learn German(Das Leben ist zu kurz, um Deutsch zu lernen)
But the truth is:
it doesn’t matter if you like German or not if you are in Germany. German is required, if you:
– want to integrate well
– want your daily life to be smooth
– need a PR/citizenship
– want to get your official work done without any confusion or delays Many people wish to get jobs in Germany. It is also a known fact that the job process is easier if you have studied in Germany. The German Education, especially the public Universities (courses taught in German) are quite cheap. It is considered best to pursue a bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Germany, before applying for a Job.
But, are you eligible to do bachelor’s in Germany?
In Order to study in German University, the students in German Uni complete 13 Years of School education; and sit for a school-end Exam called ‘Abitur’. But, Indians who have completed 12th Standard will have to do one year preparatory Course called ‘Studienkolleg’ to compensate for that one year, and write ‘Festellungsprüfung'(FSP) at the end of the Course before you start Bachelors in Germany.
This Year of Preparatory Course can only be skipped, if:
– One has cleared JEE Mains and Advance
– One has completed one Year Bachelors already in India Unlike Masters Course, most of the Bachelor courses are in German, thus, learning German is a prerequisite to do a preparatory course.There are private as well as state-run ‘Studienkolleg’.While State-run preparatory courses are free, that’s NOT the case of private ‘Studienkolleg’ Looking to learn German in Pune.

However, living in Germany has its own challenges, especially for newly arrived students, The relatives, friends and well-wishers, after looking at social
media Pictures say, “Tere toh maze hai yaar”(you have such a happening life), the truth is, none of them know the real struggle students go through! – The nights when the people around go to late-night parties, some students will be working to attend a few extra bucks.
– While people around will be spending lavishly, the students will be counting every cent before spending, sacrificing basic
comforts,searching for better part-time jobs(some of which will naturally require German speaking skills) and waiting desperately to get a Permanent Job
– The chilly first time Winters will be especially hard to bear and Study in, the students with Part-time jobs will also be forced to work in order to pay their House rent and Semester fees(more expensive if studying in English, easier to get by if studying in German).
So, kudos to all the international Students who take this big step, move out of their houses and comfort zones to build their futures.
