When it comes to higher education, Germany seems to be the favorite destination among Indian students, and they are grabbing their chances with both hands. Like they say in the German language - carpe diem, or seize the day!

In the past decade, India has witnessed a rise in the number of students with over 70% of them opting for higher education in Germany.

The spurt in the number of Indian students going to Germany is close to five times that of the global average, with Indians forming the second-largest group of international students enrolled at German universities.
