Fintiba Insights: Integration of Internationals in Germany

In 2022, we asked our customers about their integration situation in Germany. In total 9,106 international students and expats from 126 different countries delivered insights about the integration of internationals in Germany.

The major finding from this study was that international students are most encouraged to started a career in Germany if they feel successfully integrated.

Findings that shed light on the opportunities for integration included:

  • Students who felt more integrated were more likely to stay in Germany after their studies.

  • Internationals who felt more integraded were also better prepared to start a career and had a smoother job search process.

  • International students who participated in extracurricular activities felt better integrated.
