Education in Germany

Interested in studying or doing research abroad? Why not choose Germany, land of ideas! Higher education in Germany increasingly stands for innovation, internationality and strong support for high-calibre research.

Many of the courses on offer are designed particularly for international students and taught in English.

Sport brings people together and builds confidence. Promoting sport is therefore an important pillar of German foreign policy. One important tool with which to do this is the International Sports Promotion initiative of the Foreign Office, which is directed to the development of grass-roots sport in developing countries and strengthening civil society structures.

The association Afghan Rehabilitation Group e.V.  is keen to provide women with vocational training and employment.

The Cultural Preservation Programme of the Federal Foreign Office

Since 1981 the Federal Republic of Germany has supported the preservation of cultural heritage across the world through the Federal Foreign Office’s Cultural Preservation Programme, with the aim of strengthening people’s sense of their own national identity in the partner country and fostering cultural dialogue among partners. The Programme has become a very effective instrument of German cultural relations and education policy.
