Mastering German isn’t something that will happen overnight and it will surely require your constant hard work and effort. Do grab every opportunity you have to express your thoughts in German and you will be able to communicate with the Germans in no time!

Along my journey to study in Germany, I start to appreciate what I have taken for granted while in Malaysia; midnight “mamak” visits, delicious street food, as well as being close to loved ones. Studying overseas is really an eye-opening experience.

I was very lucky that German Educare helped me along this journey. German Educare helped my friends and I in many things such as giving advice in university hunting, in learning German, rooms hunting and many others. Other than that, you can connect with other Malaysian students under the care of German Educare.

Living in Germany was harder than I thought it will be, there was so many paper-works to be done, upon arrival you need to register at the town hall, get your bank account done as well as visa in a limited amount of time. I was very lucky that German Educare helped me along this journey. As time goes by, you will get used to the way Germany work. German Educare helped my friends and I in many things such as giving advice in university hunting, in learning German, rooms hunting and many others. Other than that, you can build up many connections with other Malaysian students that are studying here in various fields with the help of German Educare.

It’s difficult and it takes a lot of courage to come and study in Germany, but life is nothing but challenges right? Just go one step at a time and you will achieve your dream! Come and enjoy the process along with all of us, make good friends and learn a new culture.

With the absurdly high cost of living and tuition fees, studying overseas was clearly out of the question. Deep down, I always knew that I wanted to break out of my comfort zone, challenge myself and study abroad. I searched high and low for an affordable education abroad and was constantly disappointed until I found out that Germany offers tuition-free education even to Malaysian students.

Fresh after graduating from A-Levels, I was in conflict with where I should pursue my degree. With the absurdly high cost of living and tuition fees, studying overseas was clearly out of the question. Deep down, I always knew that I wanted to break out of my comfort zone, challenge myself and study abroad. I searched high and low for an affordable education abroad and was constantly disappointed until I found out that Germany offers tuition-free education even to Malaysian students.

However, it wasn’t easy to search up information about studying in Germany as it was either vague or in German. The one thing I know for sure is that proficiency in the German language is a prerequisite to study in Germany. And that is where German Educare comes into the picture. The team behind German Educare has been a great help since day one. My teacher from my German class level A1 to B1 is experienced in her field and ever ready to help. The German Educare team has provided me with invaluable information and advice on my pathway to studying in Germany. Their guidance has been immensely helpful especially on my visa application, opening my blocked account and settling down in Germany. All in all, I am thankful to German Educare for bringing me a step closer to achieving my life dream of studying abroad.

If I were to give a tip to other students who are interested in going to Germany, it would be this – keep in mind that there will definitely be ups and downs when walking this path, never lose sight of your end goal and keep going!

I could have never foreseen myself following the path I am taking right now as Germany did not come into my mind as a country I would further my studies in. After extensive research, I could not pass up the opportunity of studying in Germany, an opportunity no one else should dismiss. Advanced technology (Industry 4.0), a low living cost, a wide range of job opportunities and learning a language spoken by around 100 million people worldwide are among the many reasons as to why Germany is an ideal country for me to study in. Thanks to German Educare and their constant advises, the whole process of studying in Germany has been made easier and smoother.

The language barrier is definitely an obstacle for many people when considering Germany. That was also the case for me in the beginning but I know it would be worth it in the end. I can see myself speaking fluently in German with my friends and colleagues in the future. That is my main goal which I strive to achieve. If I were to give a tip to other students who are interested in going to Germany, it would be this – keep in mind that there will definitely be ups and downs when walking this path, never lose sight of your end goal and keep going!

If you never try to pursue your dreams, you will never know what would happen. Be prepared and be open for opportunities.

I spent a year in Cologne, Germany as an exchange student with AFS in year 2011. It was such a life changing experience that it has altered my perception of love, justice, equality and the world. I decided to be back for my Masters education.

The German language is an important prerequisite for most degrees in Germany. I have a basic knowledge and ability to use the language and it seemed more logical to be in Germany to master the language up to the native level. After completing my Bachelors degree in Malaysia, I had no idea, how and where to continue my German language classes. I am very grateful to German Educare, for providing personalised consultation, guidance and support, technically and spiritually to make it possible for me to complete my German language course and opened a door for me to study here in Germany.

„Et es wie et es“ – It is how is is, and certain facts can’t be altered. It’s a popular saying in Cologne. However, if you never try to pursue your dreams, you will never know what would happen. Be prepared and be open for opportunities.

Once again, thanks to German Educare, I am now in Heidelberg in the process of completing my final levels of German language and then I will be able to apply for my dream Master degree. See you in Germany too!

We need to get out of our comfort zone to learn and experience something new. You have to keep in mind that a comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there.

Do you have a dream to study in Germany? Yes, I have, and I’m grateful for my family’s support and of course the assistance and service I got from German Educare to help me along with my journey from Malaysia to Germany, which is a land of idea, a powerhouse of research, economic and innovative.

Before you want to study in Germany, you need to learn German at first. Even if you choose a course which is taught in English in any university in Germany, you must learn German anyway, at least until B1 level so that you could integrate yourself into the social life and make yourself understood without getting help from anybody else or even the need of holding your smartphone with Google Translator, because isn’t that funny when you talk to people with a Google Translator in hand?! Google Translator would not teach you a language from scratch. Language learning takes time, it is a baby steps process which needs your patience, you will start everything from scratch and starting a new language means learning new words, and there are lots of them. A German saying goes: ‘Aller Anfang ist schwer.’ It means every beginning is difficult. Yes, learning new language could never be easier, but as long as you don’t give up you can turn a lemon into lemonade. So at first, I have no idea where to start my language course, but with my luck, I found German Educare on Facebook. I was on cloud nine when I found them because they provided German Intensive course which I have been searching for. So I took A1-B1 class in German Educare and it was awesome! The teachers are responsible and patient, it makes learning German easier with them.

At first, I was totally unclear about the information to study in Germany, like how to apply for a visa, which visa I should choose, how to open a bank account, how to apply for university and there are a lot more which confused me. But through German Educare they guided me step by step procedure to get into Germany and also what should I do upon my arrival in Germany. For instance how to open a blocked account, how to activate your bank account when you reach there, visa application at Germany Embassy, assistance in university application and the relevant support. Besides they will help you register for accommodation as well! So you don’t have to worry that the need of sleeping on the road when you reach Germany. You are seriously free from doing all these troubling stuff as they will provide you a complete and satisfying assistance! So why not?! Choosing to trust German Educare is my wisest choice, as now I am settled down and continue my B1+ German language in a beautiful old city-Aachen.

The free tuition fee is fascinating, but it is not the sole reason why I choose Germany. The world-class degrees that are globally recognised, better job opportunities and for your information, the universities in Germany have an agreement with some greats companies and therefore students are provided with internships, it could help you to get in the door of good careers. These are the reasons that came into my considerations of choosing Germany.

We all grow, that is why sometimes we need to get out of our comfort zone to learn and experience something new. You have to keep in mind that a comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there. Since I came here, I learn to be independent, how to manage my time and my money better, I learn how to cook, I experienced rain, hail, snow that happening in 2 hours, I try to integrate myself into social life in Germany by meeting and making new friends here, I learn how to beat my fear to speak up Deutsch with people on street even my Deutsch is broken enough (it takes time to practice, don’t worry, as long as you in Germany the environment will force you to speak and hence slowly you will speak more fluently). There is a lot to learn and sometime the process could be fun, disappointing, tiring, awkwardly but anyhow it is a good experience in your life! You will have to story to be told, which may be life-fulling and awe-inspiring.

In a nutshell, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your assistance, German Educare. Thank you for your help along this adventure and therefore I could have a chance to study here in Germany. Hence I would like to speak to anyone out there who still hesitate about their next move, start your first step with German Educare!

Mechatronics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

I am quite thankful to German Educare as my journey to study in Germany was made much smoother thanks to their help, advice and guidance.

I have always been interested in robotics which was why I chose the subject Mechatronics. For a time I considered studying abroad in other countries such as Australia and the United Kingdoms as well, but ultimately decided on Germany due to it having the reputation as the land of engineering and its free education.

Due to it being my first time living alone abroad, I had to quickly adapt and be more independent. During that span of time when I was still attending the German language course, I learnt the value of money as well and had to manage it wisely as not to overspend such as searching for the best place to purchase groceries. Learning how to manage my time properly was another thing that I obtained during my time in Germany. For example, planning when to obtain documents such as health insurance and the enrolment form from the university in order to obtain a student visa for it to be a smooth transition.

I am quite thankful to German Educare as my journey to study in Germany was made much smoother thanks to their help, advice and guidance, such as guidance on the procedure to apply for a Visa, what must be done once in Germany and even recommended places for an internship, thus allowing me to have more time to focus on my studies. To anyone who’s looking to pursue an education in Germany I would definitely recommend German Educare to them.

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, HS Bieberach

Many people say that learning German is a very difficult task, but once you get the hang of it, it will be a fun experience. Don’t be shy to take every chance to speak in class! It definitely helps to build up your confidence in the language!

To those who are interested in studying in Germany, I will 100% recommend you to check out German Educare! They guide students through the entire process such as visa application, setting up a blocked account as well as taking care of the accommodation in Germany. Not to forget, the German Language class arranged by German Educare would definitely help you build a strong foundation in the language. The teacher is very experienced in delivering the lessons and she really prepares you well for the entrance test in Germany.

Although German Educare takes care of almost everything for us, it is also very important to make your own effort to look up pre-internship and university options. Many people say that learning German is a very difficult task, but once you get the hang of it, it will be a fun experience. Don’t be shy to take every chance to speak in class! It definitely helps to build up your confidence in the language!

Being in their program makes me feel like being under their family’s care. As long as one follows their guidelines, keep up with the suggested timeframe and of course, attend the German classes regularly, studying in Germany is certainly within his or her finger’s reach.

I must say, registering myself with German Educare has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Being able to discover German Educare in time and selecting them instead of the other German-language centres has been such a blessing! My life became so much easier once I have decided to enrol in their Study in Germany program – including attending their partner language school in Aachen. German Educare even arranged for my accommodation there. I didn’t have to worry about questions such as “Am I understanding the information from the websites correctly?” or “Are these all the things which I will need for my visa application?”.

Of course, it didn’t mean that I wouldn’t have to do my own research but having the support from German Educare simply made things easier as I am guided about the things that I should prepare. In addition, I have someone to ask when I have questions or concerns. They were really helpful and patient in answering my doubts and in explaining things to me.

In my opinion, they are doing their best to ensure that you have a pleasant stay here in Germany. This programme has taught me to be independent. If you are willing to challenge yourself to study in Germany, you should register for this programme.

As the name speaks, they ‘care’ for your ‘education’ in ‘Germany’. However, they do more than just what the name says, they will guide you through all the difficulties and the problems you will face! For example, applying Visa at the German Embassy, setting up a blocked account, opening a bank account in Germany, registering at the local citizen office and much more. They have even found an accommodation for you, signed you up for an intensive language course, which would help you to master your German. A liaison person will be at the state you are staying in to guide you through all the important processes. Adding to that, they will even guide you through all the university application processes, to make sure you register on time before the date of intake.

Before all of these could become a reality, you yourself have to make the first move to search for the courses or the universities you are interested in and take the first step to immerse yourself into the German culture. Other than that, they will help you throughout.

In my opinion, they are doing their best to ensure that you have a pleasant stay here in Germany and that you enter the university right on time. This programme has taught me about independence. If you are willing to challenge yourself to study in Germany, you should register for this programme, as German Educare will assist you.

Dreams don’t work unless you do. I was glad that I made my first move.

Studying in Germany has always been a dream of mine. In my opinion, studying in Germany is really affordable and as a student in Germany, you’ll receive a lot of privileges from the country. With that being said, the only thing the country wants from you is to know their language – German.

When I first made up my mind on furthering my studies in Germany, I struggled. The german education system is hardly hardly known in Malaysia. Hence I felt so lost and I met a lot of difficulties while doing my research. The main problem I met was the language barrier.

I was in luck when I came across with German Educare. German Educare not only provides German lessons, they also guide you through the whole procedure of going to Germany. From the visa application to getting your blocked account done. Besides that, they’ll also guide you with your University application! I had my german lessons with German Educare for 5 months in Malaysia and I then continue learning german at their partner school, Spraachen Akademie, in Aachen. It was super convenient as I do not need to look for or ‘hunt’ for a language school anymore. Other than that, the accommodation was also provided!

German Educare also took care of the little details when we reached Germany, like getting us a SIMcard, guiding and helping us with the transportation and many more. They really made me feel comfortable and at home when I first landed in Germany.

Wanting to study in Germany was a dream, but dreams don’t work unless you do. I was glad that I made my first move. Learning the language and going through the whole process was never easy. Although German Educare guided me in every aspect, everything is still done by my own. It was good as they do not want to spoon feed us. This way we could actually learn how to be independent and have a taste of hard work and satisfactory when everything is completed and done.

I was really satisfied with their service as they really made sure their students go through the best, not only in Malaysia but also in Germany. I would really recommend them to anyone who is interested as they taught me a lot along the whole process.

I see learning German as an investment – a key to more opportunities in career or in life.

One and a half year ago, I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology in Malaysia and decided to continue my Master degree in related field overseas. I have always been wanting to study abroad as I see it as an opportunity to get myself exposed to different cultures and people. However, I was a dilemma in choosing which country to further my studies. Therefore, I started working to gain some working experiences while doing research on the best place for me to study abroad.

Out of so many countries, I have mainly English-speaking countries in my mind like  Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and England. Germany has never come across my mind until I met German Educare. After understanding how the German education system works, I have decided to go to Germany not only due to the zero tuition fee education offered even to international students, I have found out that students are able to receive 18-month job-seeking visa upon graduation! I could see my potential of being able to work there after my studies, unlike many countries which have recently changed their policy that makes it harder for international students to stay in after graduation. So, Germany it is!

I attended Super Intensive German in Johor Bahru, Malaysia for a month to complete my A1 before flying to Germany for my A2.1 course in Aachen. It was only four month time, from the moment that I decided to come to Germany till I landed in Germany. Now, I am already in my A2.2 classes. I have to say that being in Germany really accelerates my German learning process – the German-speaking environment, my classmates with whom I can only communicate in German, the daily advertisements in German, and so on.

Some people might choose not to study German as they think it is a waste of time. I see learning German as an investment – a key to more opportunities in career or in life. If you really want to immerse into the German’s culture, you should know the language. Otherwise the barrier between you and the German community will always be there.

I feel really thankful that German Educare provided me with comprehensive services including giving me advices and information on which paths to take to come to Germany (before that I had zero knowledge about studying in Germany), as well as their guidance on applying visa, opening block account and all other stuffs which need to be settled when I arrived in Germany. If I did not know them, I guess I would still be in Malaysia and having the same job and same daily routines. I am glad that I have taken the first steps for changes instead of staying in my comfortable bubble.

Thank you again, German Educare. Because of you, I am now a step closer to my dream of working in Germany.
