Why American Students Are Flocking to Germany
NBC News reports that the number of American students studying in Germany is rising quickly, in part due to much lower tuitions.
"More than 10,000 U.S. students are presently enrolled in the country's higher education programs, according to data from the Institute for International Education. It's an increase of almost 9 percent compared to the previous academic year, and 25 percent more than in 2008-2009...
Minnesotan Sarah Johnson, also a University of Bonn master's student, has a total monthly expenditure of $600 in Germany — or $7,200 per year. That compares to $20-30,000 dollars in tuition fees alone she would have paid back home."
The article describes it as a win-win situation, though I wonder if at some point the German government might start limiting its subsidies of foreign nationals.
