Acdemic

Previously, there were only 3 ways to start bachelor’s degree in Germany, namely:

  1. Either complete the first year of a relevant degree program in India. For example, if a student wants to study B. Sc. Mechanical Engineering in Germany, he needs to do his first year (2 semesters) at a UGC recognized university from India in Mechanical Engineering.
  2. Do one year of preparatory program called Studienkolleg in Germany.  Seats are very limited in Public Studienkollegs and success rate for getting into them ranges between 5-10% at max. Private Studienkollegs charges hefty tuition fees ranging from 9000 to 20000 Euros (Approx 8 Lakhs to 17 Lakhs INR) for one year program.
  3. Students clearing IIT-JEE ADVANCE can directly start their bachelor’s degree in Germany.
