German Students: Profile, Interests and Expectations
In Germany, education is the responsibility of the Länder and the Bund, the federal Germany. In this way, the federal government sets overall goals and measures and the states implement them. However, some aspects are very similar throughout the country: preschool education from three to six years old is optional; compulsory schooling (Grundschule) begins for all children at the age of six, which in almost all the Länder covers grades 1 to 4 (in Berlin and Brandenburg, grades 1 to 6). After the primary school stage, secondary education in the Länder is characterized by the division into the different educational pathways with their respective certificates of completion and qualifications which are responsible for different types of schools: the Gymnasium, which allows university attendance; the Realschule and the Hauptschule. At the end of the Realschule, after the 10th grade, and after the Hauptschule, after the 9th grade, the students undergo a dual vocational training that allows them to learn a trade in a company. In general, once pupils have completed compulsory schooling (when they reach the age of 15) they enter upper secondary education. The type of school you enter depends on your grades and qualifications at the end of lower secondary education. The range of courses offered includes full-time general education and vocational schools, as well as vocational training within the dual system.
Native German students who do an internship abroad are usually students in higher education. Depending on the training model chosen by the students, they may be students from universities, colleges or professional schools.
