Hey, everyone We taking you all the way across to Germany today during a heavily requested article so with us today is that the head of the German academic exchange services (DAAD) in Mumbai talking about all the exciting opportunities expecting you to review in Germany so Shubhada Choudhury many thanks such a lot for being on the show today pleasure is all mine many thanks such a lot, and tell us a touch bit about your wonderful organization and therefore the work you are doing okay, therefore the DAAD Well, it is the de ah ah de in German which many people in India say Daad or dada OK, and it’s an acronym for Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdientist which is that the German academic exchange service and it’s a not-for-Profit Organization,  funded by the foreign ministry of Germany and by the ministry of education and research,


so it’s a not-for-profit organization meaning that we don’t charge for any of the services that we offer to the scholars and Our head office is in Delhi and that we have four other centers in India one, of course, being in Mumbai the opposite in Pune the then the third one in Bangalore and one in Chennai, okay, and that i also learn that It’s one among the most important funding organizations within the world, Yes That’s absolutely correct in 2016 we had quite one lakh scholarships given to all or any people across the planet, Wow, and that we have quite 75 offices everywhere the planet


So there’s a very large organization, so let’s mention the most important advantages for a student watching the show What are his pros of studying in Germany? most significantly when people check out Germany it’s That the innovation, the extent of innovation that comes out of Germany and innovation doesn’t begin of nothingness, Of course, there’s very specific Foundation to Innovation which starts with the schooling system in Germany therefore the dual schooling system in Germany because it is named basically you see may be a Learning theory but putting into practice that theory and there’s a really specific term thereto in German which is named Praxis Okay, and therefore the student is given the liberty, the companies are very friendly to the scholar to try to to their internships So internships become a really important part. So Innovation, Internships, and putting into practice what you’re learning.


Given this feature of world-class education in Germany, It comes at a fraction of the value. 99% of German universities, don’t charge a tuition fee this is often huge. Exactly for 2 years, Masters would approximately cost 15 lakh of Rupees which is barely anything in terms of education and exposure abroad sure in fact, and also then there are tons of opportunities to remain back in Germany and add Germany also so I mean given of these points. We call it always you recognize the five points of Why you ought to study in Germany. But they’re all fantastic all of them beats the other reasons So if you’re watching you’ve all the explanations to review here and let’s ask her the way to make that happen Shubhada, you spoke about this dual schooling system that’s prevalent would you wish to require us through the university system as well? Yes considerably, in fact, that’s a really important question that you simply asked, Chetna Because the system in Germany is extremely different from what we’ve in India and also different from the U.S System what people are conscious of it’s rather different you see.


So on one side, there are universities and technical Universities and on the opposite side, there are universities of applied Sciences, which are called Fachhochschule or Hochschule. Now the difference is that the schools are like our universities where they need many subjects, and technical universities are again universities which are focused on technology like we’ve IIT’s, in order that may be a similarity also, the schools or technical universities are more research-Oriented, Whereas the Fachhochschule Short-formed as Fh or Hs the Hochschule they’re the schools of applied sciences and that they are more industry or corporate-oriented. Also, another vital fact is that if you’re doing all of your masters from Fachhochschule then you can’t consecutively or Immediately do your Ph.D. from a research-oriented university because the focusses are different you’ll roll in the hay after a late at a later point of your time, but the University of applied sciences isn’t mandated to award or Ph.D. in order that are some things that folks should bear in mind Yes, very interesting Another question that tons of individuals want to understand you recognize is which is that the best university to travel to the present is one question that i buy asked whenever, in fact, I even have a presentation or a webinar or whatever because we come from we are exposed to the US system such a lot, but you’ve got to know that the education system in Germany is extremely different it is a lot more egalitarian than it’s within the US.



As you recognize Germany is extremely disciplined Germany possesses a law for everything. So there’s no doubt of faux universities And stuff like that which I even have heard tons of scholars during a few ratios during a few nations that they are doing But in Germany that’s nothing like that also in Germany, there are about 400 universities although being it being such alittle Country. And you’re not getting to get 400 courses for the sector that you simply are selecting So it’s more course driven, it means you’ll choose those universities that are offering you that course So if x university is ranked at the highest and doesn’t provide you with the course that you simply are watching that ranking doesn’t make any sense. Also for instance within the world rankings people do check out world rankings also know by then we well in We are a touch skeptical about what rankings ourselves But aside from that the LMU for instance the Ludwigs Maximilian university Which is ranked first within the world ranking doesn’t have an engineering course in the least so from a German standpoint there’s really no ranking intrinsically in terms of 1 two three four but there’s something called a CHE ranking which is more of a comparison of varied universities on ten parameters so you’ll choose the names of the schools, select the parameters that you simply are watching then it’ll offer you a comparison of these universities in order that is that there but in fact it’s not one two three four kind of a ranking Which is the www.daad.de this is often the most German website and in fact we’ve another India based website is under www.daad.delhi.org This might change within the coming months to daad india, may be, but let’s examine So this is often very interesting you said that you simply know every university doesn’t provide you with every course and therefore the students got to search Individual courses then choose the universities so how do they are going about this search? Where do they appear for these courses?


Well, we’ve an incredible web program that’s created by the DAAD for international students and it’s Called the as I said international programs it’s again available on the DAAD Main Web program and there you’ve got to within the keyword you’ve got to place in your field And you select which Degree were watching either bachelor’s or Masters or Ph.D. then you click on search And it’ll offer you an inventory of all the courses for that specific field available at various Universities then each item on this list may be a link in itself which can offer you detailed information that particular course, yeah, so all the small print regarding the course just like the requirements otherwise you know the course content or What are the prices and funding?


What are the Services provided by the University everything is out there on this particular web program And this international course of study web program is specially made for English courses and a few English German courses which we call 80/20 courses. Where majorly they’re taught in English 80% and 20% English. You mentioned 80/20 So one among the questions that tons of individuals want to understand is what proportion German do i want to understand before even applying See from a tutorial standpoint you do not necessarily got to know German because the classes are going to be held in English, Rather you’d be tested you’d got to provide the ielts or toefl scores, But but on the opposite part from a social standpoint you Obviously got to know German right so to start out with we recommend that you simply do A2 level to start with before getting to Germany because


The moment you get out of the aircraft everything goes to be in German and if you would like to remain back and add Germany Then we might recommend you to possess a minimum of B2 level of German but it’s good to understand that if they need a basic Fluency in spoken German to start out with they will get there a minimum of then they will continue Their learning Yes, most universities offer on-campus Courses once you re-evaluate there, So you’ll do those within the evening or whatever then come up you’ll increase your proficiency As you go along side your education,  fantastic Also we’ve seen that you simply know we ourselves come from a multicultural multilingual, society and therefore the moment you discover somebody who’s speaking your own maternal language.


There is a special connect thereupon person it’s an equivalent with the German also also you’ve got to know that for the German people English as a far off language unlike for us here we’ve been born and mentioned within the language here but not for them here certainly and if you are looking to figure in German companies you are looking at engineering-based companies with job flows shop floors and that i guess there is no to ways. that’s absolutely necessary then because you would like to not only know Spoken German actually you would like to understand business German Yes And business communication because that’s different former colloquial German So Shubhada, which are the fields that you simply find people increasingly applying for once they are applying to Germany? Obviously, engineering from an Indian Standpoint is extremely vital, but management is arising tremendously there’s an enormous lot of inquiry for management and Germany offers very excellent management options also There are two different options in Germany.


One is that the MBA and one is that the MS in management, Or MSc in management so MBA is usually a paid-for course and that they might mostly they require work experience Whereas an MSc is most of the days of freed from cost course and that they don’t necessarily invite work experience, so this is often a serious difference I mean, I even have seen tons of inquiry for banking and finance for that matter I even have seen an increasing inquiry for sports management International Management and there are on and off inquiries for law psychology as we always say that Germany has produced Nobel laureates altogether fields and there are quite 3.5 million foreign students in Germany. So let’s mention the Master’s program that’s the foremost popular route that folks prefer to once they go So what kind of eligibility criteria would be there to use for a master’s program in Germany Generally, the eligibility is that if you’ve got a four-Year bachelor’s from India then you’re eligible for a Master’s in Germany,

if you’ve got a 3 years bachelor then you ought to get in-tuned with the course coordinator because they could ask you to try to extra courses during that point or they could ask you to finish another year in India so many people do for instance if they’re coming from Commerce, BCom That’s three years, then they are doing a 1 year’s MCom Yes, that’s an opportunity also. but you recognize it, but three years may be a little problematic So the other criteria you are looking at, any regulation you are looking at for this?


There is no regulation absolutely There are people that are working for 10 or 12 years then they need applied for? Masters and gotten through, so for Post Grade, we’re just watching Twelve plus four? there is no regulation and any marks etc that you simply require generally, yes The German universities are a touch more weighed down by academics than we’ve seen us universities due to course, they need to justify finally the payment is coming from the German citizen you recognize yes, in order that they do check out Approximately seventy percent and above, but that’s not a tough and fast rule,


Okay, It depends on your letter of motivation On your recommendation letter it also depends on what percentage students are applying for that year what’s the direct competition that you simply are facing? So there are variety of things that enter finally getting an admission. Sure. hey, Thanks for watching part one among this two-part series of the way to study in Germany for free of charge now i will be able to do a fast recap and also tell you what to expect partially two, so partially one We did about DAAD,
