— 03 After Application


  • Nationals of EU member states do not need a visa to study in Germany.
  • Nationals of non-EU states can find the current visa requirements on the website of the German Federal Foreign Office.

An enrolment certificate is needed for the visa appointment.
In some countries it can take a very long time to get an appointment at the German embassy. Therefore, it is recommended to book a visa appointment as early as possible, even if the applicant has not received the enrolment certificate yet. However, it is important to bring the enrolment certificate to the visa appointment.

Nationals of non-EU states must demonstrate, when applying for a visa, that they have sufficient financial means (currently €853 per month) for the first year of their studies.


As soon as the application documents have been approved by the enrolment office and the semester fee has been received by the university, the student will be enrolled. The enrolment certificate and student ID will be sent by post (within Germany) or by e-mail (outside of Germany) from the end of February.
