Studying in Germany
Germany has over 82 million inhabitants, which makes it the largest member states of the European Union. Responsibility for higher education in Germany lies primarily with the federal states individually. The federal government only plays a minor role.

Information about visa and residence
For concrete information and advise about visa and residence you can visit the German Embassy or Consulate in your country. They will help you with the proper formalities for entering the country.
Students coming from EEA Member States (EU + Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) don't need to apply for a visa. Other students should apply for a "Student Visa". Documents have to be presented proving inter alia that the applicant has been accepted for studies by the university. The German mission abroad will then forward the visa application for an opinion to the foreigners authority in the town housing the university.
