There are a significant number of scholarships available to pursue higher education in Germany. They are funded by government and non-government organizations e.g. DAAD, Erasmus, Humboldt Research fellowship, etc. Universities also offer scholarships for specific programs and for students of specific countries.
Studying masters in Germany enables you to come into contact with professors and researchers who are at the top of their field. Learning from and working with them provides you with a wealth of knowledge and ideas that you can build on in the future.

Many German universities offer international MS programs that are taught in English. As such German language proficiency is not compulsorily required for them. However, knowing basic German does put you at an advantage in your day-to-day interaction on campus and elsewhere. Universities also offer beginners’ and advanced level classes to help you learn the German language. Check on the website of the university that you are interested in for details regarding language requirement.

This is hardly surprising as employees receive high salaries, bonuses and quite a number of paid leaves. In addition to that, work-life balance in German companies is particularly good.
