I know that each country that has international students offer diversity so does Germany. So why are we talking specifically about this? Let's talk about numbers. One of the most famous destinations, the USA accounts for 4.6% of international students among all of its students. 

How much percent does Germany have? You wouldn't even be able to take a wild guess as the percentage of international students to all students in Germany is 14% from over 75 different nations. That is a big number and so we can guess the type of international exposure and diversity that you will experience in Germany.

We discussed above that there is no tuition fee in certain public universities. But still, there are other expenses like living expenses, and travel expenses. These can be managed by working while you are studying. In Germany, you can work for 20 hours a week or 120 days a year.
