Hello! Just a heads up I am a first year college student.

So I've been looking at studying courses such as video game digital art or concept art at uni, and have been wanting to study abroad for a while. I'm not sure why but I specifically would like to study in Germany but I have no idea where to even start.

I got a 4 in German but am starting tuition and courses for it during the summer and next year, as well as recapping on what I already know.

The only problem is I have no clue about student visas or just generally studying in other countries, how to pick a uni or general things like that (hence why I might take a gap year to prepare). Does anyone have any advice that might help or links that explain things?

(I am planning on booking an appt with careers and am discussing this with my tutors).

Hi The visa requirements depend on what passport you hold. If you hold an EU passport, you don’t need any visa as long as you can prove to the uni that you have enough funds to support yourself so you won’t have to ask the German social security services for assistance. However with the Brexit uncertainty it is worth asking the uni’s in Germany how they will treat you after Brexit - will you have to pay full non-EU fees and have a full visa etc. It is normal to apply to each uni individually rather than through a service like UCAS and there will be a separate registration fee for each course you apply for - it’s usually around €50.If your German is not University level, some German unis offer course in English or a summer course to bring your German up to the level required. The arts unis are usually separate to science unis for example. This is one possibility https://www.hfk-bremen.de/en who do arts courses in English. This link https://www.deutschland.de/en/topic/...ols-in-germany Gives you a list of all the arts unis you could consider.Good luck!
