– Given the results of some researches and the German quality perspective, German high education is considered to be one of the top quality educations in the world, alongside with American and British. German universities are deemed as world leaders in medicine and engineering.
A number of faculty members has won Nobel Prize for their successes. Lots of scientific innovations are discovered and invented at German universities. It suffices to say that RWTH Aachen earned $1,3 billion in 2013 from the projects based upon the discoveries and inventions made at this university. The amount outnumbers some countries’ annual budget. Do we have to remind that a vaccine was developed against uterine cancer and patients were successfully treated at Heidelberg University in 2012? By the way, the doctors were awarded three Nobel Prizes that year.
2. Top ranked universities:
-Nowadays some institutions are rating world universities. A variety of criteria are assumed as a basis in rankings. Citation of scientists abroad, teaching quality, researches, the ability of university to get funding for a project, earnings and similar criteria are included. In annual world rankings traditionally top ten German universities are always placed in top hundred universities among the bests in the world.
