Studying abroad can be more challenging than any of you ever thought and is indeed more rewarding than what you assume it to be. I am a study abroad consultant, and have been dealing with students for over a decade now. However, what takes me aback, is that in spite of availability of such a wide spread information which is easily accessible through social media and internet searching, students still seem to be oblivious about so many fields where they can pursue a course from Germany and make their career. I am sure most of the consultancies in Pune are flooded with Mechanical Engineers only or at best engineers in general, willing to pursue a career in technical sector.
Here, with this blog today I wish to tell you which all fields could be explored in Germany and what are its benefits:
1: Learning a German Course: Yes you heard me right! Knowing German can open fortunes of opportunities for you in India and Germany too. So if you are a language enthusiast or want to pursue your career in language, then going to Germany to learn it, could be a better option. With this course you can explore career avenues in translation, interpretation, training, Customer relations, Business Development et al. There are more career avenues, start researching!
2. Sociology and Psychology courses: If you are an Arts graduate, with majors in psychology or sociology, there is a wide gamut of courses within the field that you can explore. Apart from all the known reasons for preferring Germany as a study destination, the major fact is that there several universities in Germany, which are well recognized and well ranked for the courses in Psychology and Sociology. A course in psychology or sociology with appropriate knowledge of German language can get you an employment in various areas including public sector.
3. Masters in Management: contrary to the myth that MBA is better than MIM, MSc. in Management is a better option for students who have a work experience ranging between 0-2 years, and especially for the ones who wishes to switch their careers from technical arena to Management. It is an extensive course which covers the fundamentals of Management studies before proceeding with the core curriculum. MIM as is commonly known encompasses all the skills that are needed for you to start your career in consulting, project management, research, Market analysis et al.
4. Ausbildung – a Dual study program: Though getting into a dual study program can be challenging, but this is a golden opportunity for any student who wishes to earn and learn while collecting a practical experience.

6. Medicine: Are you aware, by any chance, about the dearth of doctors in Germany? Owing to which the rules applied for Doctors were relaxed about half a decade back, and International students who have acquired their training from a foreign country also could get medical license in Germany. From optical sciences to medical informatics and from MBBS to Nursing you have a whole gamut of courses available for you.
7. Studienkolleg: For all the students who wish to pursue Bachelors studies for free in Germany, StudienKolleg is a pathway program where you spend a year completing StudienKolleg and grab a place in your dream university for free on successful completion of the course.

Yes Physics further offers you a wide range of career options right from Photonics, Molecular Sciences, Polymer Sciences, Biophysics and many more.
