For more than three years now, we have been accompanying international students on their way to Germany. During this time, we got to witness thousands of different stories, all of them unique and inspiring. Our database of internationals holds a lot of relevant information about the dreams, choices, and general behavior habits of young people from all over the world. We feel like it is time to start sharing those valuable insights with you – simply because it is extremely interesting 😉
Today, as a part of our campaign for International Women’s Day, we would like to give an overview of the male/female ratio among international students across different countries. We noticed that in some places around the world, there is a strong trend for females to study abroad and the other way around. What kind of tendencies are there among students coming to Germany? Here at Fintiba, we got curious and did a small research on that topic.
To have your complete attention, we have visualised the data in the form of simple diagrams for a random selection of countries. Let’s take a closer look together!
We have realised that there is a high percentage of Russian females coming to study in Germany compared to the country-specific ratio of males. Conversely, we have noticed that the rate of men coming from India is much higher than the percentage of women. Apart from that, Cameroon and Turkey show similar ratios in the division of genders.
We have slightly more female students from China, but the proportion of men cannot be underestimated. A similar pattern can also be observed with internationals from Colombia. In contrast to these countries and according to our database, Ukrainian women travel to Germany more than Ukrainian men.
In Egypt, there is a significant difference in the proportion of women and men and the share of male customers is quite remarkable. On the other hand, Serbia shows a healthy balance between males and females choosing to study in Germany. At the same time, there are more female than male students coming from Taiwan and Peru.
We find it interesting to see how the topic of studying in Germany could be of different interest to men and women across countries. We would like to use this chance to stress out that Germany is a very safe and attractive country for life, work and studies for women, just as it is for men. In fact, Germany has the third-highest rate of female employment in the whole EU. There are numerous initiatives introduced to guarantee a comfortable living here for people regardless of their gender and we encourage you to give this experience a chance!
