Coimbatore : With Germany looking for bright young minds to be part of their system to meet the demanding man power requirements of their various sectors, two senior University officials from there on Saturday said there was good international opportunity to study, work and settle in Germany for the students, who have completed 12th Standard.
Germany is the land of innovation, particularly in automobile sector, like Formula race cars, and opportunities now encourage students to come into their country to study and if they wish they can work and settle there.

12th standard completed students to study work and settle in Germany, said.
“We need to have to take care of our living expenses and the cost for studying the language and foundation alone. For the main course there will be no tuition fees at all in almost every university,” he said.
International students can start working immediately after completing a degree course, with a salary of 35,000-45,000 euros per annum and in case of more time required to find a proper job 18 months job search visa is given,
