Pre-Travel info

Some important steps, dates and deadlines:

  • Check the homepages of the German Embassies for regulations.
  • VISA application: As soon as possible. VISA might need up to 4 months. 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 financial plan. Be prepared to create a blocked bank account (e.g. with Deutsche Bank) to hold some EUR 10.236.00
  • If you have been requested to present your Bachelor Degree Certificate or other documents at time of enrollment, you need to show the original or duly attested copy to the enrollment officer in Stuttgart. Having a first level degree (typically the Bachelor Degree) is a legal requirement (§29 of the State University Law)
  • 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 NO longer a prerequisite for admission. Therefore, the intensive German language course is discontinued. 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.


You can apply for housing in one of the student dormitories of Studierendenwerk Stuttgart here. Deadline for application is June 15th. 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. 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. 100EUR/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.


All foreign students must go to the Admissions Office for Foreign Citizens to proceed with their enrollment. Do not send any documents by post or e-mail, please. The enrollment deadline is November 15th. Before enrolling personally at the Student Affairs Office in Stuttgart (from September on), you can already start the enrollment procedure in C@mpus. Please note, however, that we recommend transferring the tuition fees after your arrival in Stuttgart. Read here our manual on how to enroll at the University of Stuttgart.
