Students from Azerbaijan are among the leaders in the number of applications to the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst, DAAD), write German media.

This fact caused surprise among specialists, because education in Germany is considered one of the best in the world and students from almost all countries aspire to get there, and the population of Azerbaijan is not so great.

Yet, in the first place at the demand from students in DAAD is Russia, on the second is the US, and in the third is Azerbaijan. German specialists also note the rapid growth of appeals from South Korea.

Because of the political crisis between Germany and Turkey, Turkish students began to lose interest in studying at German universities.

Despite this, the number of foreign students and scholars in Germany continues to grow. In the winter term 2017/2018, there were almost 359,000 foreign students. Three years ago this figure was equal to 300 thousand people.
