Can anybody tell me if this is true? There's a rumour that the German government wants to attract a greater number of english speaking international students to their universities, since they feel that this would be a better and more diverse environment for their own (German) students. In order to get more English speaking students to attend university in Germany, the German government has waived 100% of the tuition fees for english speaking students who are from a country of the British Commonwealth. This includes 16 countries (I believe), but mainly involves Britain, Canada, and Australian students, I would think. It means that for Canadian students, there would be no tuition fee if I were to attend a university in Germany. The German government wants around 15000 students from the Commonwealth. That may be the maximum number they want, but that's just what I heard. I'm not sure if this is a one time offer, or if they're doing this every year. My parents heard this from a friend, who says he is looking into it for his children (his son is 16), although he's not interested. But hell, I'm definitely interested. Germany is beautiful. Munchen baby!!! Can anybody tell me if this is true? I've tried searching for info, but I can't find any. My brother thought about it and said he once heard that the German government once had this same plan set out for people of Jewish descent, but that he has never heard of this particular info before.
