Stadt Münster: Ausländerbehörde im Rechts- und Ausländeramt - Degree-courses



A study in Germany… in Münster?

If you answer this question with “yes”, you are in good company of several thousands of foreign students. Requirement for studying in Münster is a residence permit.

If you are still abroad, please consult a German representative office and apply for a study visa (category D). Please note that tourist visas (category C) cannot be extended for your studies.

Are you already in Germany? Do you already hold a residence permit for a study in another city and wish to study in Münster? Simply get in touch with us and ask us how to change your place of study.
