Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.

All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.

Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.

In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.

It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.

With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.

How to handle the language barrier

German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.

What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.

like, i don’t even care about the german language but i might learn it for this

Guess who’s learning german

*cries*

I thought this was fake but shit SIGN ME UP!!!

I need to travel anyways

Nope. Nope. Still ain’t goin

This is a great idea but Germany is a terribly racist country.

Uh, it’s better than the U.S. How many black kids have German cops killed in the past year?

I didn’t know I needed to rank countries from least to most racist? Germany has a very well documented history of racism, that while it may not result in the frequent killing of innocent Black men by police officers, still has damaging outcomes.

Agreed. Although you could say the same thing about the US and a lot of other Western countries. A free and probably excellent university education is nothing to sneeze at and I would hate to see people discouraged.

I wasn’t comparing Germany to the US. Or any other Western country. Or any thing at all. I wasn’t sneezing at a free education. I wasn’t discouraging anyone from exploring the option of going to Germany. I said that while this is a great idea, it is a terribly racist country. That’s literally all.

Ok! Let’s not fight cos I love you!
