Deutschland magazine: Excellent, international, cosmopolitan – why German education is special



A total of 300,900 international students were enrolled at German higher education institutions in the 2013/2014 winter semester – and Germany would like to interest even more talented young people from abroad in the academic training it offers. The special feature on education in the latest issue of DE Magazin Deutschland presents a much broader view of the subject and, among other things, provides detailed insights into the global work of German schools abroad with interviews and portraits. They aim to foster a culture of welcome – as does Aydan Özoğuz, Federal Government Commissioner for Migrants, Refugees and Integration, in a DE interview. An article by Berlin-based author Uwe Rada on the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall takes readers on an expedition into the past.
