Report by Mahamood Jamil (Germany)
Dear Fellows, assalam-o-alaikum,
My name is Mahmood Jamil and currently I am studying for my master's in "Information
and communication systems" at technical university of Hamburg, Germany. I want to
share some information with you concerning tuition-free studies in
Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
Many prestigious universities of these countries have started to offer
degrees, in which the medium of instruction is in English. There is NO
tuition fees charged for these degree courses. I think this is the best
opportunity for Pakistani students, who havent enough resources to pursue their
further studies in UK or U.S.A. Unfortunately, due to lack of
information, very few Pakistani students are getting their share from this
NOTE: Students are also allowed to WORK part-time on or off the campus
and can easily manage their living expenses.
WHY SHOULD ONE CONSIDER TAKING A COURSE IN GERMANY?
There are a great number of reasons why students from Pakistan should
consider the possibility of taking a course in a German university.
1) Study in German is FREE of charge, i.e. students just to take care of
their living expenses and accommodation, which should amount to approx. 1000 German Marks.
2) More and more universities are offering MSc degree courses
in English language as they have realized that it is extraordinary essential
to adopt English as the teaching language if they wish to attract
3) Some universities are even offering BSc courses
with English as the medium of instruction. 4) The standard of teaching and
research in German universities is ranked among one of the best institutions in the world.
Let me repeat that IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO LEARN/SPEAK GERMAN for the
purpose of study in most universities.
HOW DO I GET
IN CONTACT WITH THESE UNIVERSITIES?
The easiest way of obtaining basic information is of course via the
Internet. I will try to provide Internet addresses of some universities
offering these courses. One could also request information from the German embassy and
consulates in Pakistan to provide further information.
