This deadline applies to non-EU residents who wish to apply to a three-year Bachelor course. Depending on your country of residence, the visa application process may take as long as a few months, which is why your deadline is much earlier. You may still apply to our school after this deadline, however we cannot guarantee that your visa application will be processed in time for the 2020 course year. If you have any questions, please reach out to us in advance at admissions@dbsberlin.net or +49 30 2900 9052.

If you are applying to a one-year course, you may not need to apply for a student visa, as there are other options available for short stays. Find out more country-specific information here.

 

Residents of Sweden, Norway or Iceland:

Apply by 30 April 2020 to Request Funding

UK nationals, we know what you’re thinking: where the heck do I stand with Brexit?! Gov.uk states that if you arrive in Germany before the transition period ends on the 31st of December 2020, you will be able to stay. You won’t need a visa, but you will need to apply for a residency permit within 14 days of arrival.
