Getting Work Permits in Germany gets easier for NID students
The National Institutes of Design have been included in the Anabin database of Germany and it will now be easier for the students of these institutions to apply for work permits in that country. One of the main criteria to get work permits in Germany is the proof that education acquired outside Germany is on par with equivalent German qualification. The recognition will definitely help in getting the work permits with the courses now included in the concerned database because now the courses done by the NID students will be considered equivalent to the similar courses imparted by the German institutions.
Germany has started a Central Office for Foreign Education which is tasked with being the sole authority for the evaluation of foreign qualifications there. In order to create a central database, this office maintains a list of foreign degrees and higher education qualifications in relation to German diplomas and degrees. This central database is known as Anabin Database. The NID courses have now been included in this database.
National Institute of Design (NID)
National Institute of Design is a central organization in India for scientific and industrial design research organization. NID is located in Ahmedabad with campuses in Gandhinagar and Bengaluru. However, the government later established four new NIDs in Kurukshetra (Haryana), Vijaywada (Andhra Pradesh) and Jorhat (Assam). NID works as an autonomous body under the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT). NID has been accorded with the title of ‘Institutes of National Importance’ by an act of Parliament.
