Planning and Preparation

How can I plan my study stay? What do I need to be able to enter Germany? Where can I live? Which offices and authorities do I have to contact? Which is the closest airport? Who can help me settle into my new surroundings quicker?

We would like to help you start this new stage in your life!

This is why we have answers to some of the questions you may have.
