More than 100,000 foreign first-semester students in 2013

06.03.2014

In the academic year 2013 (summer semester 2013 and winter semester 2013/14), a total of 101,000 foreign new entrants enrolled at institutions of higher education in Germany.

Based on provisional figures, the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that, compared with the previous year, their number increased by 5.8% to over 100,000 for the first time ever.

On the whole, 507,100 first-semester students started studying at German institutions of higher education in the academic year 2013.

This was an increase of 2.4% on a year earlier.

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
