41 percent of young (age 25-35) foreigners – compared to 15 percent of German nationals – do not acquire any qualifications beyond basic mandatory education,.[15]   

Only 8.5 percent of German Turkish pupils receive their Abitur (a high school diploma, which qualifies one to attend university), compared to 35 percent of German nationals.[16]  

In Berlin some 13,000 pupils obtained the Abitur in 2005. Among these, only 183 were Turks.[17]  

Among Turks aged 20-26 only one quarter are still in some form of education or training (see table 1). Only 37 percent are employed.[18]  

The total number of Turkish students in German universities has increased to 27,000. (table 2)
