HOW TO APPLY

Once a University with the preferred course has been found through searching the internet an application can be done. German Universities receive both paper based and online applications, although Universities most times prefer online applications as it is a much easier way to apply and receive documents. The online application includes opening an account on the website of the University and filling the forms and submitting. Paper applications involve making photocopies and notarize all documents and send them along with the downloaded application forms to the admission office.

PROCESSING VISA

One important aspect in schooling abroad is the student visa. The school will provide an invitation letter after applying which will be needed when applying for a student visa. The applicant will go to the embassy in their home country with documents such as results, health insurance, passport photographs, International passport and others. When this is done the applicant will be told when to come for an interview.

It is important to note that applicants will have to open a German block account of 7000 Euros before the visa can be obtained. Applicants should not be bothered as the embassy will guide them on the procedure in doing it.
