Come to Europe

Step 1: Get a student visa to come to Germany. 

This visa has limited validity and its main purpose is to enter the country. This visa is issued by the embassy.


Step 2: Get a residence permit for 2 years in Germany

The residence permit can be requested once you are in Germany. We will schedule a meeting with the local authorities. For your stay in Italy and France, we rely on the European directive "REST" that allows you to move to the EU for your studies. We will give you details on the procedures once you are here.
