PROOF OF FINANCIAL RESOURCES
PROOF OF FINANCIAL RESOURCES – 8,700 EUROS FOR ONE YEAR
Proof Financial Resources: Before you begin your studies, you will have to prove that you have enough money to support yourself. The document you need is called a “Finanzierungsnachweis”, or proof of financial resources. You are asked for it when you apply for an entry visa. At the latest, you will need to present it when you apply for a residence permit in Germany. In most cases, applicants have to prove that they have around 8,700 euros at their disposal for one year.
UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE QUALIFICATION
RECOGNITION OF YOUR SECONDARY SCHOOL CERTIFICATE
University entrance qualification: If you want to study at a German university, you will need a “Hochschulzugangsberechtigung” – or “university entrance qualification”. This is a school-leaving certificate which qualifies you for university study. If your secondary-school certificate is deemed insufficient for study in Germany, you will have to attend a foundation course (“Studienkolleg”) before you are allowed to enrol.
GERMAN LANGUAGE IS A PREREQUISITE – BUT NOT ALWAYS
For most degree programmes, knowledge of German is a prerequisite for admission to German university. You can prove your German language proficiency by taking a language test, such as the TestDaF or DSH. However, you don’t need to know German if you intend on enrolling in an international degree programme. You can attend a language course to improve your German language skills.
VALID HEALTH INSURANCE IS REALLY IMPORTANT
If you’d like to study in Germany, you have to have health insurance. You will need to present proof of health insurance when you enrol at university and apply for a residence permit. Make sure to take care of your insurance status before you come to Germany. The first thing you should do is to find out whether your insurance policy in your home country is also valid in Germany.
