Study in Germany
If you want to take up a (university) course of study in Germany and you do not yet have sufficient German language skills, you will need the following documents:
- An intensive German course with 20 lessons per week.
- Your Abitur certificate: This is a certificate that entitles you to study at a university. Applicants from certain countries need to have their certificates recognised by the Zeugnisanerkennungsstelle. This office checks whether you can study at a German university or whether you may have to attend the Studienkolleg beforehand. (You can find help here).
- Health insurance, which you can take out online here.
