Indian enrolments soar in Germany

Indian students are increasingly turning to less popular destinations like Germany, for higher education.

German campuses attracted 24% more Indian students in 2010-2011 compared to the previous year. Their ranks grew from 4,070 in 2009-2010 to 5,038 in 2010-2011.

The number of total international students also went up. German institutions saw the biggest increase – 39% – in a year in new admissions from India. The number of Indian students in Germany has fluctuated since 1995 – the year from which official data became available.

What might make more students interested in the country now is Germany’s adoption of a bill to launch the EU ‘Blue Card’, a new work and residence permit for international graduates.
