The German government has subsidized the education in Germany therefore state-funded institutions charge no tuition fee not only for the native students but also for international students studying in Germany. Hence, every student gets a scholarship in a public-funded institution. However, private institutions charge nominal tuition fee, but they are not as high as compared to fee structure in the USA, UK, Australia or any other preferred study destinations for international students. Despite this, there are several excellent scholarships available for Masters Programmes in Germany. Doctoral degrees are generally fully funded.
