Study In Germany In four Steps
First, the conditions for studying in Germany
In the following, we will mention to you the most important steps that you must go through if you decide to study in Germany. But first let’s talk about the conditions that you must have in order to be eligible to study in Germany:
You must have already obtained a high school diploma with a GPA above 70% if you want to study for a bachelor’s degree. If you want to study a master’s degree, you must have completed university studies in your country and must have obtained a bachelor’s degree certificate.
Taking care of material things. Although studying in Germany is free in 15 of the 16 federal states in Germany, the student must take care of his personal expenses during his stay in Germany. The embassy requires proof of funding for the study through either what is known as a closed bank account that the student must open in Germany and charge it with an amount of 10,332 euros, or through personal sponsorship, or proof that the student has obtained a scholarship.
language requirement. Anyone who wants to study in the German language in Germany must have obtained a German language certificate for the A2 level as a minimum. For students who wish to study in the English language, they must prove this by submitting notarized and recognized certificates with the German embassy and even the university that the student later wants to study in Germany.
Now that we have mentioned the conditions that the student must obtain in order to be able to study in Germany. We will mention the steps that each student must follow to start the actual study at a German university.
The first step:
Find the university that matches your academic desires and qualifications. You can search either online or by visiting tCheck whether school-leaving qualifications obtained in your country are recognised in Germany or not. You can check this with the help of the Anabin database.
The second step:
Find the university that matches your academic wishes and qualifications. Here you can find out about the requirements of the respective universities on the official website of the German Cultural Exchange DAAd. When applying for a place at university, pay attention to the application deadlines for immediate or conditional admission.
The third step:
After you have been admitted to study, you must make an appointment at the German embassy in your country to apply for a study visa. Here you will find the types of study visas and the documents required for them.
The fourth step:
If you are approved for a German study visa, you will receive a visa for an initial period of 3 months. After you have come to Germany, you can apply for a residence permit at the Aliens’ Registration Office in the city where you want to settle and study. Before you apply, you must have obtained a flat and prove that you have started studying German at one of the institutes in the same city, or you must prove your official enrolment at the university if you do not need to learn German because your studies are in English.
