Things you Need to Know About Higher Education in Germany

Door Shwekrishna15 gepubliceerd op Monday 10 February 07:07

The universities for higher education, universities of applied sciences and the college of art and music are spread across the country. Most of these universities are located near to industries and various research centres thus offering an opportunity for students to find employment and stay in the same city upon graduation. The universities offer over 350 English-taught courses available across multifarious domains to study in Germany. Students don’t just acquire theoretical knowledge in institutions but also get to implement them in day to day life. A lot of higher educational institutions relieve international students from paying tuition fees.

Studies at Universities are generally oriented towards specific subject area. Universities offer doctoral degree unlike the Universities of Applied Sciences. Practical, trainings and project-work aligned with the academic course are usually imparted by the Universities of Applied Sciences which may span one or more semesters.

The application and admission in Universities differ largely from each other and are set by respective universities. So, do check the deadlines well before.

To study in Germany, a student must have a raw understanding of the cost of education and living and the student visa apart from the universities and courses. Let’s learn about them separately.

Cost of Education and Living

Most of the technical programs in Germany do not charge any tuition fees rendering students to pay a minimal amount of € 500 per semester. The annual living cost in Germany is approximately € 10,236. For business programmes, the average tuition fee may vary from € 11,000 to € 14,000. For guidance on the courses and the corresponding charges, feel free to reach out to studies abroad consultants. You may go through one of our published articles on studies abroad for more information.

Visa for Higher Studies

Foreign students might or might not need a visa for entering Germany. It depends on which country you’re coming from. Visa application is required to be submitted at the embassy office well before entering Germany.

There are two kinds of visa granted to the foreign nationals, one is Schengen visa, and another is National visa. Students enrolled in language courses continuing not more than 3 months may apply for Schengen visa. This visa cannot be extended.

International students intended to stay for more than 3 months should apply for a national visa. Certain conditions abiding national visa are-

  • If in case, admission is confirmed, students can apply for a Germany student visa which is valid for 3 months. This visa can be converted to a residence permit valid for a maximum of 2 years.
  • The residence permit is liable to be revoked if the study course is not fulfilled and discontinued in between.

There’s a list of documents regarding Germany student visa application that we have described in brief in one of our articles.
