Entry Requirements

Foreign students have to apply for a student visa at their nearest German Embassy in their home country. The 'German Alien's Act' does not allow to change the entry status whilst in Germany; never enter with a tourist visa!

Please present the following at the Embassy:

  1. Our letter of admission ('Zulassung')

  2. Our documentation of the course

  3. A proof of your financial means (EUR 670/month at least). Be prepared to show a bank statement covering the full expenses for the first year!
