The number of foreign students in Germany is rapidly increasing with each growing year in the country of Germany. Most of the foreign students in Germany will require a German student visa from a German Consulate before they actually enter premises of Germany.
Still, this criterion of issuing a German student visa varies with the country for instance; you might be exempted from getting a visa issued to study in the country in Germany. In this category, you are however required to acquire a residence permit for studies (that lasts for more than 90 days), as soon as you arrive here in Germany.
Well, it depends like if your program lasts within 3 months then you need to get a Schengen Visa issued but in case if your studies last longer than a span of 3 months then you are expected to issue a national German visa.
When you enter the country of Germany with a national visa, then you are supposed to extend your stay in Germany via applying for a residence permit for studies at the foreigners office. Remember you are expected to do all this within the validity of your entry visa.
All you need to know is that whether you need a visa or not to pursue your education in the country of Germany and if you actually require, then make sure that you clarify the type of visa and apply accordingly (considering the nature and length of your planned studies in German Universities).
The category of visa relies on the range of study degrees and level (inclusive of undergraduate, exchange, graduate and post-graduate studies). In addition to this, it also covers participation in non- academic German language course and pre-academic measure.
The first type is German student visa. It is basically a standard student visa for foreign students in Germany who have been admitted to German Universities and is fully prepared to initiate their studies for a full-time course at the universities in Germany.
The second one is a German student applicant visa. This is issued to those students in Germany who apply for university admission in person. Making it very clear, this visa doesnt allow you to study in Germany and is only valid until your application process gets completed.
The third one is the German language course visa; you need this to study a German language course in the country of Germany.
