Please inform yourself thoroughly BEFORE your stay abroad at the international representative of your degree program on the recognition of the study abroad achievements for the Learning Agreement.

With the pledge to study at a non-European host university, you will receive an official invitation. With this invitation and other country-specific documents (eg a proof of funding for the entire duration of the stay abroad, proof of an existing health insurance, etc ..) You can apply for the study visa in the respective embassy in Germany.
