AMASE students must have a valid Visa for the respective country they study in.
As an EU-citizen, you do not need a Visa. EU-citizens may live, work and travel freely in all countries which are part of the Schengen-agreement.
Students from outside the EU have to apply for a Visa at least twice: The first time to get a Visa for the Entrance University, the second time to get a Visa for the Second University. If you should decide to write the Master’s Thesis back at the Entrance University, you will have to apply a third time.
We recommend you apply for a Schengen-Visa, if possible. With this Visa, you will not have any problems to get to Germany for the Integration Week and PSS.
Even if you only have a Visa for one of the other countries, you are usually allowed to travel all over Europe. However, these regulations may vary from country to country, so please get in touch with the respective embassy.
The Visa procedure can take up to several months in different countries, so you should start the application as soon as possible.
Especially for Non-European students without scholarship, the embassies might ask for a proof of payment showing that you have already transferred the participation costs for the first semester. Therefore we recommend you transfer the payment as soon as possible, otherwise your Visa might be rejected.
Special information for Germany
Self-financing students from outside the EU coming to Germany have to open a so called “Sperrkonto“. This is a blocked account which proves that you have enough money to live in Germany for one year.
