Applicants from the following countries do not require a visa, only a valid passport:
- EU member states
- South Korea
- New Zealand
- San Marino
Applicants (also for doctoral programmes) from all other countries should inquire well in advance about documents required for a student visa for Germany. Apply for a visa at the German Embassy in your home country prior to coming to Germany: www.auswaertiges-amt.de.
To be issued a visa you need a letter of acceptance issued by Witten/Herdecke University. Please apply for a visa immediately upon receipt of the letter of acceptance, since it may take up to two months before a visa is issued.
Please do not come to Witten without a valid visa for study purposes! You may enter Germany with a tourist visa, but in order to exchange this visa for a visa for study purposes you will have to return to your home country.
