The economic powerhouse of Europe, Germany excels in science and technology and has the world’s third-largest import and export markets. Most major German cities have an English-medium international school, with large concentrations found around Frankfurt, Cologne and Berlin. 

Across the country, there are 79 IB World Schools, of which 72 are authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma and 10 to offer three IB programmes. Of these, 71 teach in English, seven provide instruction in German and English and one teaches in German.

Many schools offer the curriculums of Britain, America and France, while Japanese, Swiss and Czech schools can also be found.  Several schools, including International School of Bremen and International School on the Rhine, offer the IB Diploma alongside British and American programmes. Other schools teach both German and international curriculums. 

Coeducational, non-denominational day schools predominate but a minority offer boarding education, while others have a religious foundation. There are three European Schools that serve the families of staff at EU institutions and other children.

Prominent boarding schools include Schule Schloss Salem, which follows the humanist values of its founder Kurt Hahn, who launched the United World Colleges movement, and Berlin Brandenburg International School, which offers the full IB curriculum.

F+U International Boarding School in Heidelberg provides coeducational boarding education in English and German for students aged 14 to 18 leading to the IB Diploma or the vocational gymnasium programme of Heidelberg Private School Centre. 

Education is compulsory for 12 years from age six to 17 inclusive. Public education is conducted in German and free at all levels including university. Some schools offer German-language support to non-native speakers. Children usually attend primary school for four years to age 10. 

There are three main types of secondary school. The Gymnasium offers a rigorous eight-year academic programme leading to the Abitur matriculation exam. The Realschule provides five years of academic study towards vocational training and the Hauptschule offers a five-year general education programme leading to an apprenticeship or trade. 

Germany has about 70 universities. In 2015, gross enrolment was 105 per cent at primary level, 103 per cent at secondary schools and 68 per cent at tertiary level.
