A Masters degree is the second level of degree that can be obtained at a German university, after a Bachelors degree.

Universities in Germany are renowned for offering top-notch Master and Bachelor programs at a relatively cheaper cost than their counterparts in the United Kingdom, United States and Australia. Although tuition and fees vary among Masters degree programs, scholarships, fellowships and grants are available for qualifying students.

Once a student finishes a degree program, career opportunities are plentiful in Germany. Many educational institutions offer students the chance to do internships in their chosen field. German companies such as BMW, Bosch, Daimler, and Siemens offer a wealth of opportunities to students interested in finance, marketing, engineering and many more areas. The close proximity of London, Paris, and Rome also expand the pool of job prospects for recent graduates. Even if a student chooses to return to his or her home country after completing the studies, the prestige of a German degree will give a distinct advantage in today's competitive job market.

If you are an international student, there is a fair amount of preparation to be done when planning to study in Germany.
