This paper uses the case study of Germany to demonstrate the importance of education for local citizens and immigrants. Moreover, it compares the situation of migrants in Germany originating from the EU Member States and from the third countries. A unique dataset from 2009 comprising the microdata on a panel of German citizens and migrants obtained from SOEP allowed this comparison. The results show that the openness of the EU seems to influence the inter-EU migration. In addition, the hypothesis that the education is an important factor that influences the wages is confirmed for the locals and migrants alike. Furthermore, it seems that education represents a more important for the citizens of other EU Member States in their life and work in Germany.
