Requirements to study in TU9 Universities in Germany

 

Germany has produced a number of famous personalities in almost every fields of Arts, Literature, Philosophy, engineering, medical, technology, Media etc. There are around 70 Universities in Germany. They are classified into two categories Technical Universities(TU) and University of Applied Sciences. Technical universities (TU) are mostly research oriented and can award Doctorate degrees. Officially there are 13 technical universities in Germany, But the group is named as TU9 and it includes the following universities:

1. RWTH Aachen

2. TU Berlin

3. TU Braunschweig

4. TU Darmstadt

5. TU Dresden

6. University of Hanover

7.University of Karlsruhe

8. TU M√ľnchen

9. University of Stuttgart

10. University of Applied Sciences

We will be discussing in this article, the basic requirements or criteria which needs to be fulfilled to get admissions in TU9 universities in Germany. So lets begin our list.

Eligibility Requirements for masters course


The admission requirements are set very high by the German Universities because of the huge number of applications which they get from around the globe. The eligibility criteria may differ from university to university thatswhy one must refer to the University website for the eligibility criteria for that particular course that you are interested in. We will be discussing the general eligibility criteria to Graduate from TU9 University in Germany.


1. Academics


Certification of Undergraduate study (Bachelor degree) in a similar field is required. Also as the number of applications is very high one need to have good scores in academics. Although there is no minimum grades provided by universities.

2. Language Requirement


If the course is completely in German language, then one must need to prove his proficiency in the German Language by providing German language certificates.

German as a Foreign Language Test (TestDaF)

German Language Test for the Admission of Foreign study applicants (DSH)

If the course is completely in English, then proof of proficiency in English must be provided that can be TOEFL (550 and higher (PBT), 213 and higher (CBT), 79 and higher (IBT) ) or IELTS above 6.0 bands in each module.

PTE is also being accepted in some universities. A score of 59 is minimum required.

If the course is mixed i.e some subjects are in German and some in English then appropriate proof may be required.

3. Entrance qualification


If you are applying for engineering courses, some universities may demand GRE, they welcome GATE score but it is not mandatory.

In Business management courses, some universities may demand GMAT. One must check the university website for details.

Some universities require the student to give entrance test either online or upon their arrival at the campus (in the later case conditional admission is provided by the university for visa).

4. Work Experience


Although it is not mandatory but it Improves your chances of admission, if you have relevant work experience in the field of further study.

5. Project Work / Thesis


Demonstration of technical ability through project execution/internship /training / online courses etc can help you in securing admissions.

6. Extracurricular activities


Paper presentation, participation in Technical symposium, conference, NGO works, participation in sports n cultural activities etc is highly appreciated by universities and they increase your chances of getting admissions along with getting the visa.

7. Fees and Living Costs


As you know that education in Germany is tuition free at most of the Universities. The Universities charge you some amount as semester contribution which is about 140 - 500 Euros at max, which is utilized for the University's development, lab and other facilities. Living cost in Germany is also minimal, on average 700 euro per month will be a decent amount. You can earn it by working part-time if you want. But this amount can increase depending on the city and the lifestyle of a student.

8. Application Procedure


There are two intakes every year for admission one is winter intake which takes place in month of Sep/Oct and other is summer intake which takes place in March/April. The application and visa process in total takes about 4-5 months so students need to plan accordingly. The deadline for winter intake is 15 Jan and for summer intake is 15 July (It depends on university). Hence, an early application is highly recommended for students.

Once the University receives all the applications then they take about 2-3 months to inform students and send the admission letter. One must check all the documents thoroughly before submitting to the university as many universities directly cancel your application if any document is found missing.

The foreign students have two options for applying to university. They can either apply directly through the university website or can take help from UNI ASSIST. UNI ASSIST charges 55 euro as their service fees for applying to 2-3 Universities. An additional 15 euro is charged per Universities for further applications. UNI ASSIST assists students with its partner Universities only.

9. Work during and after Studies


Students are allowed to work part-time for 90 full days or 180 half days a year. which makes around 20 hours per week.

A graduate is allowed to stay in Germany for 18 months after completing the studies to look for a job. Once they manage to find a job they can convert their student permit to residence permit for taking healthy employment.

Important Note


Since the process of admission is very competitive and tough especially for engineering branches like mechanical and computer science and other related subjects like medical etc. It is therefore recommended that you should aim for at least a score of 310+ in Gre, and in TOEFL 100+, also you should maintain CGPA 8+ to be in the competition.

Permanent Residency in Germany - Everything You Need to Know.

Permanent Residency in Germany - Everything You Need to Know.

Permanent Residency in Germany
Permanent Residency in Germany

When the twelfth grade completes or Bachelors completes, the majority of the general population consider moving to Canada, Australia or the United States since they have seen other individuals do it, they have seen their companions do it and that is the place the entire thought of moving to various nation springs up: disappointment with the instruction framework and occupation showcase in India and in light of the fact that the companion of your dad revealed to you that his uncle's child moved to the United States or Canada or Australia on the grounds that the compensation is madly high and it's anything but difficult to get perpetual residency (well, let the United States well enough alone in the PR part. It can take up to 9 years to get a changeless residency there through lottery framework).

Nowadays everyone is brainwashed to follow the stupid trends. Be it a platform, an app, your school or even the field you should choose in your Bachelors/Masters or even your entire decision of moving to a different Nation. Everyone tries to influence your mind with their own opinions and most of the people just have heard the things, even when he might not have any idea and he might be telling you the exact thing which he listened from somebody else, with some own words mixed.




Whenever anyone thinks of moving to another country, Germany rarely comes up in his mind and i will not blame. Because the perception of people is that it is not possible to reside for a longer duration after you complete your studies here (Not True). Also, some have the hesitation of breaking the German language barrier and also everyone thinks that it is almost impossible to get PR in Germany.

Is it Difficult to get PR in Germany?

 

If you want to reside in Germany for a longer duration and get all the benefits of a citizen (other than the right to vote). Then you should know that Germany only rewards highly educated and skilled people with a chance to get a permanent residency. 


Requirements that you need to fulfill for a permanent residency in Germany

 

  1. German university degree certificate (Bachelors, Masters or PhD)
  2. B1 level of German Certification.
  3. Have a residency permit since at least 2 years (you get it automatically when you start working).
  4. Must have sufficient income to financially support yourself and a public health insurance
  5. No crimes/offenses (Even just normal fines can obstruct your Permanent Residency application!)

 

Documents required to apply for PR in Germany

 

  • Valid passport
  • 1 current biometric photograph
  • Filled out application form
  • Certificates
  • Bank statements and Salary Slips
  • Rental contract for the apartment/house
  • Proof of social contribution payments
  • Health Insurance document
  • City registration

 

Cost to get a PR in Germany


The application for a permanent residency generally costs 113 Euros (the price can vary from city to city). (Price may change).

Final Words 


Germany is in a great need of new and young workforce who can continue the legacy of German economy forward and this is the reason it is so extremely easy for highly qualified people to get a job, permanent residency and citizenship afterwards. No other developed country offers the permanent residency just after 2 month. 

If you are thinking about moving to Germany, then right now is literally the right phase when you can do that because even the rules for PR had been renewed this year to make Germany more attractive and so far it has been working out, but the number of vacancies in jobs that the country still faces is a gap which will only last a next few years.

High quality of education
High quality of education

Germany has a very high quality of education as compared to countries like India because, in Germany, Practical education is given more priority rather than just theory. Here in Germany, you don't have tests or practicals throughout the semester but there are only semester exams. Which give students enough time to do research and take part in curricular activities. 

3. An education system designed especially for Foreign Students


Germany has made available many courses, especially for Masters, in the English language. So that the foreign students can easily study their courses. 

4. Cheap Education System


As you know that almost every public university in Germany has no tuition fees, i.e education is free for all, whether you are a Non-EU citizen. universities have only a small semester contribution ranging from 70 euros to 350 euros per semester. When you pay your semester contribution you get a semester ticket which gives you the facility of using public transport for free in a given radius. Also, you can get discounts in malls and shops by showing your semester contribution ticket. 

5. Average Cost of Living

Average cost of living
Average cost of living

Cost of living is a topic which totally depends upon the lifestyle of students. But if I talk for a student with an average lifestyle. i.e you cook food yourself, don't drink much or go to pubs etc. Then it will cost you around 650 euros - 800 euros depending upon the city.
You can read my post about Life of student in Germany. In this, all the points are explained in detail like cost of living, weather, etc. 

6. Great Scholarship Programs


In spite of low tuition fee, Germany also offers you numerous scholarships to help you in lowering the cost of living, semester contribution etc. You can easily find scholarships on the website of DAAD.

7. Friendly People

Friendly People
Friendly People

Germans are very welcoming by nature, and you will rarely find problems like racism or groupism. Old people of Germany are little conserved about their culture and language and prefer to talk in German only otherwise the young people are friendly and also speak English to a greater extent.
You will never feel discrimination here.

8. German Language

Living in Germany: Life as a Student in Germany.

Living in Germany: Life as a Student in Germany.

Life in Germany
Life in Germany


So you have now decided to go to Germany and you want to know about life in Germany. First of all congratulations on the great decision. Germany is one of the best countries for higher studies and also it has a high quality of life. But what is life in Germany really like? Here we will go through a few characteristics of life in Germany, cost of living etc.

1. Weather in Germany

weather in Germany
weather in Germany


Weather in Germany is cold, really cold. Most of the time there is winters and also in summer you only have sun for few hours of the day. This is the main reason why some students after reaching Germany feel negative or low for some weeks. So be prepared for the weather.

2. Nature of People of Germany


German people are very conservative about rules and regulations. They are also very punctual about time and hate being late. The old people of Germany are not that friendly to strangers and also avoid speaking English. But the younger generation is more friendly and also speak English.

3. Food

Food in Germany
Food in Germany


Germans haven't gone beyond bread, cheese, sausages, and salads in their culinary ventures. For a vegetarian, it is really difficult. If you can cook for yourself, you can survive better. I will recommend you to learn cooking as it will help you not only in eating your own food but also will save you some money.

4. Language Barrier


Life will be very hard if you don't speak German. At least, basic German is needed even for going to a supermarket if you will live in a smaller city. For socializing with locals, a good grasp of German in a must. Many Germans can speak at least some English; but, good luck having them continue speaking in English esp. when you are grouping with a German majority.

5. No Domestic Help


There is no one there to help you, you will have to clean your house yourself. Also, unlike India there is very difficult to find maids, also if you find one it will be very costly and unaffordable for a student.

6. Termin or Meeting


In Germany, you will have to take an appointment for almost everything. If you want to visit any govt. office or any other office you will have to get an appointment.

7. Cost of Living


Cost of living totally depends upon your lifestyle. If I talk in general, general means a student who has a simple lifestyle and he cooks himself and doesn't go to clubs regularly. Then it will cost you around 650 euros per month.

8. Public Transport

Public Transport
Public Transport


There is an excellent public transport in Germany. There are Trams, Bullet Trains, Trains, Buses etc. Also when you pay your semester contribution you get a semester ticket. Using this you can travel in your city for free.
Also, all the nearby countries are connected to each other. When you get your visa, you do not only get the visa for Germany but you get a Schengen visa by which you can travel to these countries also by trains.

9.  Best Places in Germany to Live


  1. Munich
  2. Dusseldorf
  3. Frankfurt
  4. Berlin
  5. Hamburg
  6. Stuttgart
  7. Nuremberg

10. Cheapest cities in Germany

  1. Leipzig
  2. Bochum
  3. Kiel
  4. Siegen
  5. Jena
  6. Osnabruck
  7. Bremen


Last but not least you will never feel threatened here as the Police is very swift in taking action and is on the spot the next moment the crime has taken place. Same goes with ambulance service. The way people clear the way for the ambulance instead of a traffic jam (which is very rare)is really commendable. The bus drivers all wait for you to climb inside the bus/taxi and bus driver/train driver come out and help the disabled to climb inside. 

I hope I was able to provide you with some important information. If you have any doubts or suggestion then please comment down below.
