Entry Visa
The University has no possibility to speed up the processing of the visa application in the embassies. We would like to point out that, although enrolment is possible without a visa and that students can start their studies during the corona pandemic with online courses, the possibility to enter the country is absolutely necessary for obtaining a degree. In addition, existing enrollment at a German university does not improve your chances of obtaining a study visa.

The student residences are managed by the Studierendenwerk Paderborn. Here you can find the application form for accommodation. We would like to point out here that the International Office has no influence on the allocation of places of residence and does not arrange places of residence itself. Further information on finding accommodation can be found here!

Health Insurance
In order to enroll, the university requires a certificate from a statutory health insurance company stating that you either have sufficient insurance coverage or that you are not a subject to compulsory health insurance (Befreiungsbescheinigung). You can find more information on the page about finances and insurance.
