We want students to be able to read all the articles we produce about studying and living in Germany. As such, we’ve created a special half price membership offer.

Earlier this year, a new study found that Germany leads the way as the best country in Europe for prospective international students.

About 12 percent of the country’s students come from abroad. And some 2,000 of the 18,000 post-secondary courses on offer cater to a global audience in that they are conducted in the English language.

In spite of these figures, moving here to study can be a daunting experience. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the language barrier, seemingly endless paperwork or simply not having a clue where to start.

That's why The Local has written stories exclusively for foreign students moving to Germany to give them a helping hand.

We’ve looked at the different types of higher education in Germany and the top institutions for landing you a job. We’ve also uncovered the most and least expensive German towns for student digs, as well as compelling reasons why you should study here.

The Local Germany now has a membership scheme in place meaning to access all stories and more in depth Members' articles, we charge a monthly or annual fee. But if you are a student you can take advantage of 50 percent off, meaning the fee will be just €2.49 a month or €24.99 a year.

And remember, we produce many other kinds of articles that will be useful to you during your stay in Germany, such as this one on what you should know when it comes to renting.

This link takes you straight to our student page where you can see all our 'Studying in Germany' articles or you can just click here to get 50 percent off membership.
