International students in Germany

How many international students are there in Germany? And where do they come from? Our social survey provides the answers. With our quiz we want to make the results available to the wider public - playfully and simply.

Unfortunately there's no prize, but you will be surprised by some of the answers.

Don't worry; most people who are not experts on the subject will have to guess the answers!

How many international students receive a grant?

In Germany grants are awarded rarely. Only 25% of the international students receive grants. Only 46% of them are supported by a German funding organisation. Graduates are more likely to be funded. An important funding-organisation is the DAAD ("German academic exchange service"). Numerous DAAD offices and language assistants worldwide inform students in the homelands which possibilities of funding exist.
