Bavarian school students lead most rankings in German states and have been among Europe’s best for many years as well. With such a diverse mix of global businesses operating in the state, international schools and a growing number of opportunities for multilingual education have been cornerstones of the local education system, both for immigrants and German citizens.
For help connecting with Bavaria’s universities and universities of applied sciences, or for more information on degree programs relevant to your industry, let our U.S.-based team help you (confidential and at no cost).
As one of the world’s leading locations for science and research, Bavaria is home to 15 universities, including the elite institutions of Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). An additional 25 universities of applied sciences offer degree courses that are more practically orientated and are targeted exactly towards specific professional requirements.
Germany’s famed dual apprenticeship system is also at work throughout Bavaria. Combining practical corporate experience with theoretical training, the two complement each other for a high standard of well-rounded “real world” preparation. This international model of workforce development has been meeting company employment needs for decades.
Citizens of non-European countries require a residency permit to legally work in Germany. The following residency permits are valid: A visa; permission to reside (a limited-period residency permit); an EU Blue Card (a limited-period residency permit for highly-qualified workers), a settlement permit (an unlimited residency permit which authorizes you to work), and an EU permanent residency permit (an unlimited residency permit which allows you to work; you can apply for it when you have legally lived in Germany for five years).
The Federal Employment Agency offers a migration check, which is an initial point of reference for workers wishing to relocate to Germany from the U.S. to find out whether they will have any problems working in Bavaria. More detailed information on this topic can be found at “Make it in Germany” and BlueCard-EU.de
