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 come from developing countries?

40% come from developing countries and about 37% from newly industrialising countries. Only about 23% come from countries with an per capita income similar to the German one.
