Study in Germany

Finding the right University:

The more choices you have, the harder it is to choose. This especially applies to your situation, as there are so many opportunities to study in Germany.

There are 409 officially recognized institutions of higher education in 165 towns and cities throughout Germany. In total, German universities and colleges offer more than 14,500 degree programmes. And from all of these, you will have to choose one. In the following, we’ve put together some information to help ease the agony of making such a difficult decision.

What kinds of Colleges and Universities are there? Deciding on a College or University is somewhat easier as there are only three types to choose from in Germany:

Studying at a University is a good idea if you are interested in a scientifically-oriented education. Universities offer a broad range of courses and subjects.

Important Facts

1. Before you leave:

You should take care of the following:

  • Language skills;
  • Aptitude tests;
  • Recognition of your certificates;

    Many ways lead to a Diploma / Degree programme:

    There are different ways to apply for admission to a German university. For you, the form of application depends on which subject you wish to study.

    We distinguish between two categories of subjects in Germany:

    1. Subjects with a centrally restricted admission policy (nationwide numerus clausus). These subjects are so popular that there are far more applicants than available places at the university. At present, these subjects include Medicine, Pharmacology, Veterinary Medicine and Dentistry.

    2. Subjects with no or a locally restricted admission policy (numerus clausus implemented by the university).


Undergraduate costs to study in Germany:

Germany has become a popular destination for foreign students looking for an international education. German Universities offers internationally recognized programs at a relatively cheaper cost compared to UK, USA or Australia. Moreover, there are a significant number of available scholarships that allows foreign students to study in Germany for free.

As of October 2014, all Public Universities in Germany will not charge any tuition fees for undergraduate studies. In some Federal States,, there is a charge per semester for enrolment, confirmation and administration – usually around €100 (US$138). There may be an additional charge of around €100 for a “Semesterticket”, which covers public transport expenses for six months. There may also be a long-term fee charge if you exceed the period of study in Germany by more than four semesters, and this could be as much as €800 (US$1,103) per semester.

Most universities in Germany are public. The private institutions have to rely solely on tuition fees for their funding, and charge up to €20,000 (US$27,573) per year as a result.

Master’s and postgraduate costs to study in Germany:

Master’s degrees in Germany are usually free if they are classed as “consecutive” – a continuation of a corresponding bachelor’s degree (again, there is a charge per semester for enrolment, confirmation and administration, plus a Semesterticket). But a “non-consecutive” master’s can cost more than €10,000 (US$13,782) per semester, and private institutions can charge up to €30,000 (US$41,345) per year for a master’s.

Scholarships in Germany:

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD: Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) provides support for German and international students to study abroad, in the form of scholarships for German and international students, academics and researchers.

Cost of living in Germany:

The cost of living in Germany is more expensive in some areas than others, with average costs ranging from €350 to €1,000 (US$482 to US$1,377) per month. Rent is cheaper if you’re in a shared flat (average rent of €245 or US$337 per month) or a student hall of residence (€200 or US$275 per month). The average costs per month, according to Deutsches Studentenwerk, the German National Association for Student Affairs, are: €165 (US$227) for food; €52 (US$72) for clothes; €82 (US$113) for transport; €33 (US$45) for telephone, internet and TV license; €30 (US$41) for work/study materials, and €68 (US$94) for leisure activities.

2. After you arrive:

    After your arrival you have to take care of the following formalities:

  • Enrolling at the university

    Your first steps in the university will not lead you to an auditorium, but to the student registration office. There you will be able to officially enrol.

  • Registering in your town

    Once you have found accommodation, you have to inform the Residents’ Registration Office (Einwohnermeldeamt) of your place of residence.

  • Residence permit

    You have registered at the Residents` Registration Office but still don't have a residence permit? You will have to approach to the Aliens' Registration Office (Ausländeramt) in your city for the Resident Permit for the Study purposes (Initially valid for Two Years).
