Interesting Place - Germany

Germany has been named as the most supportive country for overseas students, in an international league table.

(The British Council has placed Germany in first place in what is called the 'Global Gauge', which ranks university systems on measures such as openness, degree quality, how widely degrees are recognised, support for overseas students and how much students were encouraged to spend time abroad.  What's really funny is that one of the main attractions for international students is the increasing availability in Germany of courses taught entirely in English, so much so that students can complete degrees without ever having to speak German!  Now why didn't I think of that?)
