The German Academic Exchange Service (known as DAAD), an autonomous body working under the auspices of the German government, organized a seminar on the possibilities of higher studies for Indian students in Germany at the Goethe-Zentrum in the city on Wednesday.

Currently, there are around three lakh international students studying or doing research in Germany.

"After the United States, Germany is ranked as the most-preferred destination by Indian students and research fellows," said Goethe-Zentrum, Thiruvananthapuram, director Syed Ibrahim.

Since German universities do not organize commercial admission drives, students were given handbooks that give more information on the different varsities in Germany. More than 150 students from different colleges and other educational institutions in the city attended the seminar.

"The universities prefer to admit students who are either pursuing their bachelors, MS or doctorate studies. The education is free and the students can live with just 450-600 euros for their other expenses and food," said Ibrahim.

Shilpa Pandeswhar, information officer of DAAD from Bangalore, who conducted the seminar, explained in detail the educational system at the German universities, with particular thrust on the highly-respected technical universities in nine major cities.

German universities do not take any fees for the courses, except for the two federal states where the students have to pay a semester fee of 500 euros, approximately Rs 35,000. With the introduction of the 'blue card', Germany now permits non-EU students to seek employment in Germany and settle down there.

After completing studies or research, students are now allowed to stay in Germany for 18 months to find a suitable job. This has made Germany an attractive destination for study and work, said Pandeshwar.
