Passport Secondary school certificates and transcripts (in original language and as legally attested translations to German or English) Copies of university certificates and transcripts Copy of Visa or Aufenthaltsgenehmigung (only applicable for students already residing in Germany) What is the admission process for this program? Apply via the BIC online application form including entering your personal information, uploading the required documents and paying the 174 EUR application fee. Uni-assist tests your documents regarding your eligibility to study in Germany. The chosen BIC Partner University issues a conditional offer letter on the basis of the uni-assist test result. You receive the acceptance letter from BIC and the conditional offer letter from the university via email and regular mail. Is this program available online? BIC programs are all exclusively at our campus in Berlin – in the up and coming district Friedrichshain. May I work to finance my studies? Working is not permitted for students with a study-preparation visa during the first calendar year of receipt of their visa. Only starting with the second calendar year students are allowed to work 120 full days per year or 240 half days per year. As soon as they enter university, student jobs (at the university or research facilities) are exempted from this rule. Is accommodation included in the tuition fees? Accommodation is not included in the tuition fees. BIC offers its own accommodations to students on basis of a waiting list. Additionally, we provide students with websites, addresses and other tips to find alternative accommodation in Berlin. Do I need health insurance? There is an obligation by law for all temporary and permanent German residents to have health insurance. For students the coverage that a travel insurance provides is insufficient. Hence, you will need to take out a health insurance from a German private health insurance provider or arrange for an extension of the health insurance you have in your home country (if the specifics of that health insurance cover the requirements that the foreign registration office – Ausländerbehörde – demands). How high are living costs in Berlin The German embassy requires proof of international students that they can finance their living costs with at least 720 EUR per month. This is a good reference point. Berlin is a little more expensive than the average city, and costs - e.g. average rent - are rising. Therefore 800 Euro per month would probably be advisable. Do I have to apply for a visa? Any non-EU student will have to apply for a study-preparation/student visa (national visa). As the application process can take up to 12 weeks, sometimes even longer, you should apply as soon as possible. You can receive advice and guidance from the BIC Admissions Team. All EU residents need to register and apply for a residence permit, once they arrived in Germany. Does BIC help with the visa process? The BIC student advisors will provide you with exact website links, useful tips and information on how to prepare for the visa application. Do I have to know German to study this program? No. You can join this program at any suitable German language level – also without any knowledge in German. [-]
