After passing the qualifying examination, students can begin their studies in the winter semester. Enrollment is a prerequisite for taking up studies. For enrollment you need to present:
- a valid identity card or passport
- proof of health insurance
- proof of language skills (English TOEFL JBT and/or German A1)
Upon enrollment, a fee of 67 € per semester must be paid to the Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg.
Once enrollment has been completed, students are bound by the provisions of the Bayerisches Hochschulinnovationsgesetz (BayHIG) and the Academy’s study statutes in their current form.
Public health insurance plans from the following countries are also valid in Germany: all member states of the European Union, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Morocco, Macedonia, Montenegro, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia, Tunisia, and Turkey.
With your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), any medical treatment you require in Germany is covered.
Private or public health insurance plans from other countries may also be recognized in Germany. You need to inquire with your health insurance provider before leaving home.
In case it is recognized, you will need a confirmation letter from a German health insurance provider that certifies that you are insured and exempted from German public health insurance coverage. Please ask the International Office about which German health insurance provider to contact.
In case you need to find a health insurance plan, the International Office can also point you to a reliable health insurance provider.
Immigration for international students
If you are a citizen of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Switzerland you only need a valid ID card or comparable document to enter Germany.
Otherwise you will need a visa. The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) offers detailed information on obtaining a student visa.
