Germany is a popular destination among international students. More than 12 percent of students at German universities come from abroad. A German university degree, especially in the fields of engineering and sciences, is highly regarded by employers around the world.
To honour the achievement of Omani students who graduated from German universities in 2018, Ambassador Schneider invited them to his residence and handed over certificates acknowledging their achievements. Also invited were 11 Omani students who will leave Oman for Germany at the end of October. They have been awarded scholarships by Oman’s Ministry of Higher Education. In Germany, they will attend language courses in Marburg and a university foundation course organised by DAAD German Academic Exchange Service prior to study for their bachelors’ degrees at German universities.
