4266 ratings | 307753 views
While the cost of college education in the US has reached record highs, Germany has abandoned tuition fees altogether for German and international students alike. BBC's Franz Strasser looks at the increasing number of Americans who are taking advantage and saving tens of thousands of dollars to get their degrees.

In the Medieval young pros were strongly encouraged to move and see the world outside of their home range. You couldn't get the Master of Craftmanship degree without being abroad several years. And you needed that degree to start your own business. That system guaranteed a permanent transfer of new technology to everywhere.

I am an international student who came to the US for his Bachelor's Degree in Engineering. The US treats its international students like garbage. We are not allowed to work outside the campus, we are give only 90 days after our graduation to find a job, which got really difficult after Trump was elected. Many US companies refuse to hire international students. Plus, Americans are really hostile towards international students and don't want any immigrants to come to the U.S.We pay at least twice as much money as US citizens. I got a scholarship, but my parents still had to pay a lot of money for my education. My friends in Canada and Europe have a much easier time studying and looking for jobs. Most of the time, it's much cheaper, and they have more rights than an international student in the US. The US is truly the birthplace of capitalism, you get what you have signed up for in the contract. No hard feelings, it's just business.

Nor more german lectures? I'm guessing it's not a technical or scientific university. I can't imagine that one of those would want their students to sound like uneducated idiots in german. Everybody sounds like an uneducated idiot in a language he didn't study in, freely accessible resources for technical and scientific language are horrible. At least for german/english.

yes. you pay like 150 to 2000 dollar for 1 Semester, depending on the university and state. this inclueds free public transport(which is awesome in germany) in your region. https://www.hs-schmalkalden.de/studium/studienangebot-hs-schmalkalden/master-studiengaenge/international-business-and-economics-ma.html some small university like this costs around 130 dollar for 1 semester + around 150 dollar/month for health insurance

Firgasz (3 months ago)
it bothers me that those people came here to study for free and after they graduate they move back home... there is no advantage or reason for this country to educate your future competitors. I understand that its hard to understand to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to study a few years on an Ivy league school and i do not blame the people who seek this opportunity to get free eduaction, i blame the government. Foreign students should pay 1500-2000 dollars per semester here that would be ok. But my question is, did the us accept a german bachelor or master degree? Is there a huge different beweteen german universties (Humboldt or Freie Universität or Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich or Heidelberg) and Ivy league schools like harvard?

Who are you even answering to? Unlike americans most europeans know about the world outside of thier country. We know that people in the US earn on average more than thier counterparts in most european countries. But we also know that there is less/none guaranteed paid vacation days, worse health conditions, extreme costs for education, a much higher crimerate, badly trained cops and no free healthcare in the US. Also why didnt u add Switzerland, Luxemburg and Lichtenstein to your charts? Probably because they rank way above the US in terms of income? God, theres a reason why so many people think bad about the average US American.

The average American still makes 20,000 more than the average German, even though the US doesn't have free college. Plus the average German is taxed 32% of that income, while an American is taxed somewhere between 18-24% of their income, not to mention that daily routines such as shopping, eating, transportation, and other common utilities are much more expensive in Germany compared to the United States.
corni wo (1 month ago)
Well the thing about your facts is that they are wrong. First if you look at the GDP on a PPP basis germany is only 10% behind the US. Furthermore shopping, eating and transportation is way cheaper in germany. Food at the supermarket is way cheaper than in the US and it only coasts about 40 Dollars for me to take a high speed train from munich all the way to berlin. Nobody has the idea that communism works and yes the rest remains capitalist. And yes medicare for all works. In germany we pay about half of what the average american pays why our quality of medical services is equal.

This is stupid government policy from the German government tho good for us from America. It is irresponsible for the German government to use German tax dollars to pay for foreign students and the degrees ought to be in German to help preserve German language and culture.

in Europe, education is a right. So the governments have to provide it for free (or almost for free). In the USA the education system is crazy! I get scared to hear how it works over there! they are creating a debt generation...(together with a poor youth mass). Imagine if the most intelligent icons from the history had to pay for their university degree?? We probably would not hear about Einstein and other brain genius... They would have to grab the first job for decades for paying the university loan. no chance for personal development..

It's wrong for someone outside of a country to get freebies at the cost of the taxpayers in that nation. Sure they are glad they get something for free. I'm also sure the German taxpayers are NOT happy that the money comes at the cost of extra taxes for them. If the person immigrates to that country and works/pays taxes there, then that's morally acceptable.

When I found out that Germany introduced a free uni education, I was surprised - I thought that it had been free for ages. In central and eastern europe, free university education is taken for granted, same as free health care. Education there is your right, not a privilege. But there are a few countries in Europe which provide education as a privilege and charge for it...
JewsLikeFunk (6 months ago)
I'm very well aware of Germany's tuition free universities. However what are the prospects of staying in the country, getting a job after graduating? Especially those who're into the Liberal Arts/ Humanities streams like Media, PR, Advertising, Music, Theatre etc. Given the current trend, STEM degrees are the fashion these especially in Germany I assume given their automobile industry. For example, I always wanted to study in US, and got very close to applying too but the thought of racking that massive debt and having the US Govt. telling me to fuck off in a year because I'm a non-stem graduate irks me from even considering the US in the first place. Any inputs will be great.
Chrischi4598 (6 months ago)
The problem of the free university's in Germany is that the professors main goal during the first 4 or 5 semesters is not to teach you something but to get rid of the majority of students, instead of helping them pass with good grades This results in higher dropout rates, harder exams and gpa with an way worse average then compared to other States
Mangafan47 (6 months ago)
That's a misunderstanding in some parts. German university education is based on the principal of self-work and self-discipline. In the US you get a teacher helping you with everything & checking on you; in Germany it's just assumed you're an adult and you go to them if you noticed something's not working and you can't help yourself. It's the students responsibility to earn good grades, not the teachers/professors to just give them out on sale. That's why the exams are harder & the drop out rate is high, as well as the one switching mayor after the 1st year. The idea of college education from US to Germany is different. Germans have a 2nd educational way through apprenticeships in some jobs you can study and in craftsman jobs. You can be a federal certificate computer scientist without setting a foot into Uni as well as a bank manager. In the US there just college or high school degree jobs so you get more pulled through uni, make it easy so everybody can get a degree. Right now Germany is moving toward that, but it's highly criticized since it devalues the degree.

In Germany, you can't get into University even if your Rich parents can afford Harvard, if you don't have an Abitur, Which you can only get if: -You Graduate from a Gymnasium School. -You Complete 2-3 years of Ausbildung. -In the Case of Foreigners, they ought to have Equivalent qualifications to a Gymnasium Graduate, or do Ausbildung. So no, its not so easy to get into a German University. It increases Germany's soft power. And its also important for Germany's Mittlestand that German's get to know students from abroad, and have contacts/potential partner in other countries, making it easy for German exporters/importers to conduct business.
Mangafan47 (6 months ago)
Translation for non-german speakers: New study shows: the public cost for foreign students equalize if 30% of graduates stay 5 years [... explaining how the ministry for education made the study and that they compare Germany with the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Swiss and Spain] In the year 2011 the 160,702 students from abroad in Germany consumed goods value 1.531 billion euros - compared to other countries this is the highest value. This consum leads to a federal tax income of 400 million euros, that are 2,500€ per student. This value added also affects the employment rate, equals 22,000 new jobs. [... / people like economy minister giving statements] @ Tæüręn Čømprēssòr I have a german passport, but I'm a so called abroad German. My parents are german, but I'm raised abroad. I just lived the 1st year of my life in Germany until I came back to make my final high school year and my university degree in Germany. So i can tell you from friends it's not that easy to get into uni. Even though the language barrier is the biggest problem for the mayority. Mayors like psychology or medicine, who are requested a lot, are only offered in german. Means you do not only have to be able to follow lectures and writing exams in german, but also learn all the technical terms in german. Mayors in English, like in this movie, are basically in economy/business, language or engineering. Everything else you have to pass the Goethe exam on a high level or got your A-level exam from a german or european high school.

"why the fuck should Germans pay for a bunch of foreigners to come study there." Because it means economic return. If you speak german, read this: https://www.bmbf.de/de/auslaendische-studierende-ein-gewinn-fuer-deutschland-438.html If you can't, well basically, it shows we profit from foreign students.
Tæüręn Čømprēssòr (6 months ago)
Mate, I don't know where you're from. But in Belgium, for instance, colleges (not so much as they just add an extra group) and universities literally overfill their classes, psychology is famous for this. It doesn't even matter what you need to achieve before getting in, as long as it's relatively easy. Since Germany had 300'000 foreign students in 2014, it's not like it's too hard to get in. The amount of foreigners is literally getting so big that Germany is going to reintroduce tuition fees for non-EU students. As they should, why the fuck should Germans pay for a bunch of foreigners to come study there.
Mangafan47 (6 months ago)
Hahaha sure, because entrance exams, undergraduate qualifications and the maximum amount of students each uni can accept do no longer exists ... (irony) To get registered as a student you have to get qualifications first and in the mayors with a big run you need a specific grade (or better) to be accepted, a degree equivalent to the standard german one or pass international entrance exams. You can not just come across saying "Hi, I want to enroll here."

Ho-ly-crap some of the discussions here are just way too unworldly and delusional "propaganda in germany is still as strong as during the world wars" "the us-military is providing each and every piece of economical benefit european states receive" "other states n countries can afford not to have a huge military but we are forced to and it's a 'huge honor' thus we encourage unaffordable education" by now you'd think humanity as a whole had evolved a bit on a cognitive level but - reality check - here comes the nope train
