Direct application

Only Online Application is possible and available at:

Application deadlines are: 15th March (non EU nor EEA citizen) or before 30th June (EU or EEA citizen and visa free citizen) in the year of study begin.

These two different deadlines are based on visa requirements. Since, some non EU nor EEA citizens do not need a visa before travelling to Germany for their studies.

Based on our knowledge, there is no visa necessary to enter Germany for your studies if you are a citizen from: Andorra, Australia, Brazil, El Salvador, Honduras, Israel, Japan, Canada, Monaco, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, San Marino, Switzerland or USA.

However, we strongly recommend you to consult German embassy in your home country, if you are a citizen of one of these countries, to make sure that these regulations are still valid (we don´t  guarantee the list, because visa regulations can be changed).

List of required documents for a complete application:

  • ARTS application form

  • Scientific Research Proposal (max. 2-3 pages)

  • Application is only possible online.
  • Your application has to be received before the deadline.

  • The deadline for EU or EEA citizen and visa free citizen is only valid for persons, which don´t need a visa to study in Germany before their arrival.
