Germany ranks number 4 in Higher Education System Strength Rankings
As the only non-English speaking country, Germany made the top five in a recent study by QS Quacquarelli Symonds.
Are you wondering which countries consistently deliver the best higher education experiences and boast the strongest higher education systems? A recent study by QS Quacquarelli Symonds, a leading global higher education company, lists the top 50 countries worldwide for the strength of their higher education systems. Therefore, each country is marked by the following four different criteria:
- System strength: How strong the higher education system is in comparison to the rest of the world
- Access: The number of places available at the internationally ranked universities in each country
- Flagship institution: The rankings take into account the standing of each country’s leading institution
- Economic context: The relative strength of the system in respect to the nation’s GDP per capital
Germany ranks number 4 in this study, making it the only non-English speaking country in the top 5 and even pushing Canada down to the 5th place. Consequently, it comes with no surprise that Germany is the world’s most popular non-Anglophone study destination, and the third most popular overall – only the US and the UK welcome more international students each year.
