Visa Requirements for International Students wishing to study in Germany

WHAT IS A STUDENT VISA?

Any international student who intends to undertake full-time study in a course at a registered in-stitution of higher education in Germany needs to obtain a Student Visa.

The visa, which is granted initially for a period of up to three months by the German Embassy/Consulates General, permits the holder to enter Germany. However, it will be extended by the competent Foreigners' Registration Office ('Ausländerbehörde') when the student duly registers himself/herself within the first three months of his/her stay in Germany. The extension is done for one year at a time, up to the duration of the course.

A Student Visa is valid for multiple entry. International students must leave Germany on completion of their course of study.

APPLYING FOR A STUDENT VISA

To be considered for a Student Visa,
  1. the applicant must first complete an application form for a 'longer stay visa' (white form) in duplicate.
  2. A valid passport and 2 passport size photos are needed for the application.
VISA ASSESSMENT

Applications will be assessed on the basis of the

following criteria:

I. Evidence of Enrolment

One of the essential requirements for a student visa application is that the applicant has been accepted for enrolment by a registered institution of higher education in Germany. This is proved by the admission letter ('Zulassungsbescheid') from the German institution.

2. Bona Fides Assessment

The bona fides assessment determines whether an applicant is a genuine student who intends to undertake studies in Germany, abide by visa conditions and depart on completion of the course. This involves amongst other criteria examining the following:
  1. whether the applicant's German language skills are adequate for the purpose of the proposed course
  2. relevance of the proposed course for the applicant's current academic and employment circumstances
  3. applicant's intention to comply with visa conditions and leave Germany at the end of the authorised period of stay
  4. applicant's migration history and ties with Germany
3. Adequate Financial Resources

This involves an assessment of the applicant's or his/her sponsor's ability to finance all expenses pertaining to the applicant's education in Germany including cost of living and a German medical insurance.

The approximate cost of living for a single person in Germany is DM 1300, a month. Students should not expect to be able to fund their studies and living costs in Germany through part time employment. Special conditions for student jobs apply.

4. Health Certificate

It is essential that the applicant meets the German health requirements. This involves the proof of a recent medical check-up and a chest x-ray. The medical certificate should clearly identify the person examined.

INFORMATION ON STUDYING IN GERMANY AND SCHOLARSHIPS

The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) is an association of German Higher Education Institutions with a branch office in New Delhi, India. DAAD gives information on higher studies in Germany and provides counseling for students and scholars wishing to pursue higher studies in Germany. German Institutions of Higher Education do not usually employ agents, nor do they charge for the counseling services.

In general, scholarships for undergraduate or post-graduate studies are not available for international students. Students who already have obtained a master's degree may apply for a scholarship to carry out research at a German institution of higher education. There are a number of scholarships offered each year under various schemes. Details are available from
