You will also have the opportunity to work independently on a research or development project.

                                                      Funding

                                                      The financing of studies is one of the most difficult and important subjects that international students have to deal with. As early on as when you apply for a visa and a residence permit you must prove that you have enough financial means to finance your studies in Germany. At the moment the German authorities require proof that you have 8,640 Euro for one year of studies. This proof of financing is meant to ensure that international students can finance their studies themselves since they do not normally qualify for state help in Germany.

                                                      Even if you provide evidence of financing your financial worries are not yet over. In Germany, a budget of around 9,000 Euro per year will only allow you to lead a very modest lifestyle!

                                                      StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
