English Language still in the first place

I was curious about this specific matter last week, so I have looked at the June stats of our platform and create you a little pie chart about it. Like you can see the top 3 most desired language for your study abroad projects are:
  1. English,
  2. Spanish
  3. French.

But what this chart doesn’t show is that you are 2% to choose German and 1% Italian.

Germany is one of the top most wanted destination to study abroad.

With low tuition fees, a reasonable cost of living, and a central place in Europe, it is only normal to want to study there.

The four most important cities in Germany by population are:

  1. Berlin
  2. Hamburg
  3. Munich (München)
  4. Cologne (Köln)

As you can see, you only have to choose in which area of Germany you want to study, you will find a big city to welcome you.


Reutlingen University is located to the northwest of Munich, in the Baden-Württemberg state. It is Germany’s third largest state in terms of size and population.

How the University presents itself:

Reutlingen University is one of Germany’s leading universities, offering international academic programmes with close ties to industry and commerce. On our campus we have around 5800 students spread across five different Schools: Applied Chemistry, Engineering, ESB Business School, Informatics, and Textiles & Design.

Professors, Visiting Lecturers and administrative and technical staff guide these talented young people along their academic path.

We offer 43 degree programmes at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, in which we train the top executives of the future. At the same time it is very important to us to support our students’ personal development and to ensure that they become specialists and managers for whom social responsibility is second nature.

About the German Language

I start with some fact from:

  • German is the first language of about 95 million people worldwide and the most widely spoken native language in the European Union
  • The German language consists of about 5.3 million words
  • The first printed book was written in German (The Gutenberg Bible)
  • English and German share 60% of their vocabulary.

Did you know the last one? Maybe this fact will convince you to take learn some German and maybe to go study in this country!
