Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.

All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.

Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.

In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.

It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.

With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.

How to handle the language barrier

German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.

What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.

This is actually making me cry…it’s one of those times when you realize that your own government just truly, honestly, does not give a shit about your wellbeing in any way.

If Americans don’t reblog this, then y’all need help.

Wanna come over? ;)
You can also travel cheap through europe with the train when you are a student here.

1) the Faroe islands, Chile or Tuvalu. I like small islands and Chile looks like a really cool place to be.^^

2) Being grumpy and stubbornly working through it. Also lack of sleep and lots of coffee. And I tend to get hysterical amused over the most unfunny things.(oh, and making lists to not forget what I still need to do)

3) Sculptor: Bernini    Painter: Caravaggio, Georges de La Tour (also Manet, because of his humor)    Illustrator: Tony di Terlizzi    Fanartist: Snuffes, Jasjuliet
 (even though there are TONS of people, whose art I love and which inspire me
)

Thanks for your ask :D

Where my left sock is? No idea. Have you seen it? I’m searching for that for a couple of days now.

When I stopped believing in Santa? I am not sure I ever did. Isn’t as if he is real, like dragons and fairies. (maybe they stole my left sock…)

How I got my TMNT-mug? I bought it in a local shop. But it is also available on amazon.eu ;) (I checked it!)

Thanks for your questions^^

Anonymous said: If you saw the new TMNT episode, what are your thoughts/feelings on tentacle Donnie? How long have you been an artist? And what are some of your favorite subjects to do art on (such as themes, characters, etc)

Besides my undying love for the absurdity of everything with tentacles (including octopodi) was I thinking that those are giant worms biting down Donnies limbs and coating his hands in weirld worm spittle. But I liked it^^ The whole thing reminded me a little of darkness within.

I’ve always drawn, but the whole thing got more serious for me at the age of eleven. That was the time I decided to become an artist, but dunno when I started to count as one. :)

I like to draw interactions between people. Expressions. Trees. Animals….and overall comics or illustrations basing on stories. :)

Thanks for your questions <3

Tweet 2: anyone w a credit card (not everyone, I know) can/should use ella ella-rx.com they’ll ship it overnight $45
SIGNAL BOOST. Ella is another form of emergency contraception/the morning-after pill. It’s more effective than Plan B and can be taken up to FIVE DAYS after your mishap, rather than three days. Please spread this around; with all of the anti-choice legislation flying about and how difficult it can be for some people to get Plan B even OTC (like minors, people living in small towns, etc.), this might be the only way a lot of people can get their hands on the morning-after pill.

Boooooost

I’ve also read that Ella is more effective for plus size people.

This is important. Ella works for everyone. Plan B is not effective for people over 176 pounds. Protect yourself

Everyone?
Boosting the shit outta this.

Two of those characters aren’t women at all.

Except all of them were, at certain points in the story, and three still are.

This is so totally the opposite of IDW TMNT, that comic has so many awesome ladies, mutant ladies, scientist ladies, fighting ladies, ladies from other dimensions, villain ladies, hero ladies, a lady who time travels, ladies of color, mothers etc… and none of them were introduced as a male character’s love interest.

I am going to show them to you under the cut because otherwise your tumblr dashboard would fucking stretch

YES! Bless the tmnt IDW comics! Cause the writers here know what they are fucking doing!
