Studying in Germany

Universities in Germany are famous for excellent education, not only in engineering. German degrees are recognized all around the world and have a strong international focus. Various scholarships and special support for international students are available.

Applying to a Master's in Germany

If you've decided to study a Master's degree at a university in Germany , you will have to gather the right documents to prove that you fit the university requirements. Provide complete personal information, previous qualifications, financial information, and a personal statement.

Before you start collecting all the documents needed to apply to a university in Germany, you will have to either have to check if your qualifications match those requested by the university with an HZB (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung) or attend an entrance examination (if you’re from outside the EU/EEA).

After you are cleared of these, you will need to check a certain process, called Numerus Clausus, which is a thorough process of selection.

The final step will be to provide these documents:

  • Certified copy of your previously completed degree;

  • An official translation of the course modules and grades;

  • A passport photo;

  • Copy of your passport;

  • Proof of language proficiency – German (and / or English);

  • A motivation letter;

  • Proof you covered the application fee.

If you decide you want to follow a course in German, you will need to provide certification you can study and manage your exams in this language. That’s why you will need to obtain one of these:

  • DSH (German language exam for university entrance) – available only in Germany;

  • TestDaF – available in 90 countries worldwide.

Otherwise, if you want to study one of the numerous programmes in English, offered by German universities, then you should have:

  • An IELTS English proficiency test;

  • A TOEFL English proficiency test.

But if you feel overwhelmed, you can always apply using Studyportals Apply. Just select a Master's from the list of our partner universities in Germany and answer a few questions, in order to determine how well you fit the Master's programme. Then, you just need to fill in your student profile. If you complete your profile to 100%, you will be able to apply to more than one university. We will apply to the university on your behalf and do our best to get you into your dream university. Plus, you won't need to worry about the application deadline or any application costs.
