Addressing a separate press conference. Ms Katja Friedl,
International sales director of ISL,Sprachscule,Germany,said learning Germany was crucial if a student wanted to pursue studies in German which has become a hub of quality scientific research and innovation.
Many Indian students were eagerly looking forward to their studies in Germany but they always had the language problem. Keeping this in view,the ISL each year helped about 250 Indian students to gain German language abilities.
Nearly 6,000 Indian students study in Germany now as Germany besides being a hub of quality scientific studies was also keen on attracting bright Indian minds for further studies and research.
Another incentive for Indian students was that German universities did not charge any fees,Ms.Friedl added.
