Studying in Germany - An Alternative to American Colleges As tuition costs at American colleges continue to rise, some look with envy to the excellent and (almost) free public university system in Germany. Studying there is a real option for any American high school graduate, provided certain qualifications are met. This webinar explores the current higher education system in Germany (with a focus on Baden-Württemberg), what the requirements are, where to apply, what it costs and how teachers can use this knowledge to attract students to their German programs.
