Moving to Germany

Moving to Germany

There are lots of things to manage if you want to study in Germany/at KLU. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has created a website that explains all the steps: The most important thing is to apply for your visa in time. We recommend non-EU applicants to apply at KLU five months before the commencement of studies, and to apply for visa right after having received the acceptance by KLU. The KLU Student Services team is there to actively offer you advice and support with the points in the process listed below. 


The video series 10 Steps to Studying in Germany released by the DAAD explains how to apply to a university in Germany. Ana, the protagonist from Brazil, is not a KLU student and not all of the information applies directly to the degree programs at KLU. However, the videos communicate the most important terms and answer many questions that you may be wrestling with right now. Ana speaks German in the videos and each episode has English subtitles.

Living in Hamburg

Hamburg is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its extensive stretches of water and green parks and the historic residential areas are renowned. There are many attractive possibilities for leisure activities. It is these special qualities, together with the maritime atmosphere and its proximity to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, that make Hamburg a jewel among international cities. It is a popular city among German students. Its cultural spectrum rivals Berlin’s. Students  can experience the diverse nightlife offered at the Reeperbahn, enjoy great music at the Elbjazz and Dockville festivals and relax in the cafés and trendy bars in the St. Georg and Schanze districts and watch the Hamburg sunset at the city’s popular harbor beach clubs.
