Visum

The entry requirements into the Federal Republic of Germany are different according to your country of origin and the duration of your stay. Please enquire as soon as possible as to whether you need a visa or not.

Please consider that this study programme  is a blended learning programme, a mixture of long distance and on-site periods. For this kind of study, you can’t get a student visa in Germany and stay here as a resident, since it isn’t a fulltime study. You are only supposed to come for 8 to 10 days in the three first semesters for the lectures and the exams.

Find the basic information on the website of the German Academic Exchange Service:
https://www.daad.de/deutschland/nach-deutschland/bewerbung/en/9199-visa-application/

It takes ‘two and ten working days to decide on an application for a short stay visa. During the peak travel season there may be a waiting period for making an application to a German mission. Persons requiring a visa to enter Germany should therefore submit their applications in good time.’

Health Insurance

All International students in Germany have to prove that they are covered by a health insurance for the duration of their studies in Germany in order to be enrolled. You can purchase your health insurance either in your home country or in Germany.
(See http://www.hs-lu.de/international/exchange-students-from-partner-institutions/health-insurance.html)

If you are not covered by a health insurance of your home country, you can be insured in Germany for the duration of your stay. The health service system is quite good in Germany.
