You have to get the visa for Germany in Korea before you leave for Germany. You should prepare all documents to submit German embassy in English. It takes at least 1 month to get the visa. So, you need to apply early. In particular, you need

  • First, the invitation letter of the University of Hildesheim which certifies that you will be a regular student in Germany.
  • Second you need a proof of funding. For this you can get a support certification paper from Prof. Do Wan, Kim.

In Germany you have to register on the alien office to get the residence permit. This will be done during the orientation week for foreign students organized by the International Office at the beginning of each semester before the start of the classes.


Health Insurance
