First off  - Welcome!

We are excited to welcome you to the University of Stuttgart and we know you have a million questions - but don't worry we are here to help!

Depending on the questions you have and the type of assistance you need there may be different departments within the university that you need to get in touch with.

Here we hope to help clear up some of the initial questions many applicants have when preparing for their studies.

Visas
  • Check the homepages of the German Embassies for regulations.
  • VISA application: Apply as soon as possible. Some applications can take months to be processed. Make sure that it is a student visa you apply for, not a tourist visa! If you are a citizen of an EU-country you do NOT need a visa to enter Germany. For other countries with visa waivers see support information of the International Office.
  • The embassies may request a proof of your finances for your studies. Be prepared to create a blocked bank account with the funds required to finance your studies. 
  • The International Office has gathered some important pre-departure information on your first steps in Stuttgart as well as on the possibilities to register for a welcoming service. You can find it here.

Proof of Basic German Proficiency is NOT a prerequisite for admission. The program is taught completely in English language. However, basic German level is helpful in day-to-day life. We therefore offer German Classes during the term on a limited basis.

Dormitories

You can apply for housing in one of the student dormitories of Studierendenwerk Stuttgart here. If you plan on doing so - apply as soon as possible! Please follow the instructions on how to fill in the application form as outlined in our manual. Please note that there is no guarantee to get a room. INFOTECH has no influence on the assignment of rooms. Rooms are allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Health insurance

Students from NON-EU-COUNTRIES ONLY: we urgently ask you to purchase private travel health insurance before traveling to Stuttgart. This insurance should be valid from the beginning of your journey until approx 31st of October. From the beginning of your enrollment onwards, you must purchase German statutory health insurance (approx. 120EUR/month) if you are less than 30 years of age. If you are older than 30 years of age, you will have to take out private health insurance based in Germany. Please contact the International Office for more information upon arrival.

Enrollment

The enrollment deadline is November 15th. The enrollment procedure can be completed in C@mpus. Please note, however, that we recommend transferring the tuition fees after your arrival in Stuttgart. You can find more information - including step-by-step instructions - about enrollment here.

The INFOTECH office is not involved in the enrollment process.
Questions regarding enrollment should be directed to the deparment of Application, admission and enrolment: https://www.uni-stuttgart.de/en/study/contact/

Tuition Fees

For Non-European students, tuition fees (1500eur), administrative contribution and contribution to the student's service organization are charged per term/semester.

For students from the EU, administrative contribution and contribution to the student's service organization are charged per term/semester.

A 'notification of tuition fees' document will be available in your C@mpus account once the fees have been calculated (ca. May).  This is an official, personalized document from the university that outlines what fees you will have to pay the university for the semester.
Receipt of fees is also marked in C@mpus - please note it can take up to 7 days after payment for the status to be updated.
