How To Apply

Application Procedure Contact the International Office at your chosen university first, for admission requirements and selection procedures. It is the university that decides about the course offered. Depending on your domicile, costs in Germany can be higher/ lower than in your home country.

All applicants need to fulfill the necessary requirements to study at an institute of higher education. If a student wants to study at a German university, he or she needs a higher education entrance qualification, which is similar to a secondary school-leaving certificate. There is either a general qualification or a subject-specific qualification which entitles students to study certain subjects.

Admission   Criteria

To determine whether the applicant’s higher education entrance qualification will be recognized in Germany or not, enter the applicant’s country name, where they received their certificate in DAAD online admission database.
It will then inform you whether you are eligible for a direct university admission (or) only for a subject-restricted study or for a combination. This is subject to the proofs they submit.
The DAAD online admission database only provides a general overview. The website of the anabin (German only) can give you in detailed and vast information.
Generally, candidates must either submit a work portfolio or pass an aptitude test.
But in rare cases, gifted applicants may get admission for artistic degree programmes without a higher education entrance qualification.
Ultimately, the university has all the rights to say the final word about your admission. Therefore, enquire at the international office about your University’s admission requirements before you apply.
Once you got the offer letter from the University, one needs to enroll or register. Those who register can only attend the courses at the University. It also enables to access all the facilities like sports grounds and computer rooms.
Hence it would be better to enquire at the international office for all the required documents need to carry on the enrollment day.
After getting enrolled, University will give a written confirmation of the same, which serves as a student Identification card. Student has to enroll for each and every term.

Student Visa

Citizens from other countries are required to apply for a residence and work permit before entering Germany. They can get their work permit at their German consulate.

The visa process consists following three stages:

Stage 1: The Residence Permit application is received by the German embassy.

Stage 3: Upon approval, the Embassy provides an entry visa to the candidate.

Above all, international students are required to hold an entry visa upon their arrival in Germany. These can be obtained from the German diplomatic mission of resident’s country.

Students who wants to pursue an under graduation or a post graduation course should apply for a National visa.
