Eight Steps To Study In Germany
Get Good Grades
Due to the overwhelming number of applications, your grades are a defining factor during the application phase, having higher grades will set your application apart from everyone else and will boost your chances of getting accepted in a top tier university.
Pick a study program
Germany offers more than 2000 international study programs in top, highly ranked universities.
Choosing the right study program for you is very important, as it will later affect which type of preparatory year you will attend (If it is required in your case).
To get enrolled in a German university, you must have a certain level of knowledge of the German language, as most of the programs offered in the universities are taught in German.
Apply for university
After choosing your preferred study program, we recommend visiting the university’s official website in order to familiarize yourself with the requirements to get enrolled in your course. You will have to fill a form to apply for a German university and wait for the acceptance letter.
We highly recommend applying to multiple universities as it will increase your chances of securing a study place.
When you receive your acceptance letter from a university you must open a blocked account in a German bank. You will be required to prove that you can finance your studies for the first year.
Starting from 2020 you must deposit €10,236 into your blocked account, with a maximum monthly withdraw of €853. However, plan ahead and keep in mind that moving to another country can be costly, therefore you will need some extra cash during your first three months.
Apply for German Student Visa
In order to enter Germany as a student and stay for more than 90 days, you will need to apply for a German student visa from your nearest embassy or consulate. Please check the exact requirements on the German embassy’s website. You would need to present your university acceptance letter and financial proof to the Visa officer.
Get an accommodation
Germany is crowded, especially in big cities such as Berlin, München, Hamburg and Köln. Planning ahead is pretty wise in this situation, start searching for a suitable accommodation for you around 3 months before your traveling date.
Buy a flight ticket
Now you are ready to go!
Prepare your baggage, say goodbye to your family and friends and get ready. Good Luck!!
