Student visa application
For a student visa application to study in Germany please contact a German diplomatic mission or consulate/embassy in your home country to ask for the necessary requirements. You should definitely have:
- A letter from uni-assist confirming your university entrance qualification or
- the admission letter from Fachhochschule Dortmund or
- a letter from Fachhochschule Dortmund (Bewerberbestätigung) which confirms your High School qualification and that you are allowed to study at Fachhochschule Dortmund (if it is not possible to issue an admission letter),
- proof of sufficient financial means for studies in Germany.
The German aliens’ departments do not convert a tourist visa into a visa for study purposes. Different regulations apply to EU and EFTA nationals and citizens from Australia, Israel, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Honduras, Monaco, San Marino and the USA.
