Step by step method for application process in the University of German:
• Choose the university and subject: Planning your studies in Germany begins with finding a university and deciding what courses you want to take. Fortunately, there are many universities and tons of programs in the area, and their quality is undoubtedly world-class.
Whatever direction your life takes, there is undoubtedly a study program that will match your goals. The high number of available programs could be the reason you haven’t decided yet. Check the list of available courses before starting your search for a university.
Our recommendation is to think about the program at least three months before making a final decision. This period should give you time to search all German universities offering courses that relate to your professional field. Having identified German universities and chosen a small list of candidates, you can focus on choosing only one university or apply to many of them to enhance your chances of admission.
• Complete all needs: When you have decided on what university and study program you want to attend, you should check the website’s requirements. If there are a few things that you don’t understand, you should contact them directly.
There are different entry requirements for various universities and courses, so read the requirements section several times. In this stage, the most common issue is improper timing. If this occurs, your application will be delayed or will even be rejected. To avoid such a risk, you should prepare these documents as soon as possible.
For example, to sit for a standardized German proficiency test, you need to study for three months. But learning German from scratch is much more complicated. It may take a similar amount of time to legalize your documents until they are finally issued to you. With the possibility of an occasional delay originating from the nature of the process, you should begin the preparation process at least four months before applying for your place at the university.
• Study and learn German language: Even if you register in an English-language program, you will benefit greatly from having a solid-rock grasp of the German language to understand study materials and think critically. Many higher education programs in Germany are mainly taught in the student’s mother tongue, whereas classes taught at the undergraduate level are often taught, German. Outside of university, it is common for you to have to speak German with locals.
If you start learning German early enough, you will know the language very well by arriving in Germany. We recommend that you start learning German months before starting your course (or before the application when skill in the language is a requirement).
• Manage monetary resources: As the next step, you need sufficient financial means to live and study in Germany. An international student who is not an EU or EEA citizen must have adequate financial means to live and study in Germany during their studies. It is estimated that a student needs at least €10,332 to cover the cost of living during the first year of his studies while studying in Germany. The money needs to be deposited into a German blocked bank account.
You should start saving money long before you begin your university application, except if you have been awarded a scholarship, you can use it as proof of your financial means.
You should secure this money a few months in advance and apply for your student visa when it has been deposited.
• Applying for admission: By double-checking your application documents, it’s time for you to apply. The application can be carried online, but universities may receive only applications in person or by post.
Contact your university to see which way you can submit your application. Most German universities are part of the national university online application platform known as UniAssist. In addition to this, some universities run their online admission platform on their website.
Universities in Germany are hubs for international students, so these institutions’ admission committees have a lot on their hands. So going through each application takes a lot of time, so submit yours as soon as possible.
The application process depends on what level of studies you intend to pursue. Depending on your level of studies, the application procedures differ slightly. Yseurfe month in advance, and when is the start date.
• Manage your German student visa: As you are a student from outside the European Union and the European Economic Area, you’ll need a German student visa. We suggest that you schedule a visa appointment through the German consulate once you have collected your documents.
One of the best ways to convince the authorities that you have a sufficient amount of the amount of money to cover your study and living costs would be to open a bank account known as a Blocked bank account. We recommend opening a blocked bank account with Fintiba, a genuine German company, with the German Foreign Ministry’s approval. You must get a health insurance policy and the other documents required by the German consulate/embassy in your home country before being granted a student visa.
• Arrange accommodation: When you have been officially admitted as a student in Germany and secured your student visa, you must think about where to stay. Although Germany’s accommodation cost for international students is not too high, international students are expected to seek out the most financially suitable place for themselves.
We suggest you give the right amount of importance to this matter since it may take you much of time you would otherwise have used to study. However, when you land in Germany, you can check online for accommodation.
You should have a list of resources to contact to secure your accommodation on your first day in Germany. As with the other steps described above, you must find accommodation as soon as you receive your visa. Two weeks before your arrival in Germany should be fine.
• Register or enroll at your University: The final step in getting an official university place is to enroll in the course of your choice. In this sense, enrollment is the final step in becoming a registered student in Germany.
Although public higher education in Germany is free, students still have to pay an entrance fee somewhere between 150 and 250 Euros. Additionally, students must acquire a semester ticket which gives free use of public transportation for six months. You must appear personally at your university’s administration office to enroll in your university course in Germany and submit the following documents:
• The Letter of Admission
• The payment fee receipt
• Degree qualifications (original documents or certified copies)
• Proof of health insurance in Germany
• Your valid passport
• Your Visa or Residence Permit
• A passport photo
• Completed and signed Application Form
When following your university enrollment, the administration will grant you a registration document (ID card) to use for your residence permit application and your classes’ attendance.
A crucial note: You have to re-register each semester following the end of the previous one to cover the exact registration costs.
