Berlin In Photographs

With our last article on university cities, we followed up on earlier articles about the Czech Republic and Austria by traveling to the third country on our list, beginning our exploration of Germany with a look at Munich. This week we have examined the scholastic possibilities of the German capital of Berlin.

Not just China, India and Russia, international students now come to Germany from all over the world, though admittedly an appreciable percentage comes from these three countries.

This city of 200,000 residents has its fair share of student population and international students at the university level.
