Khizar Malik (B23) has written a simple guide to help you get your Master’s degree from Germany. Khizar is currently studying Germany himself.
- Get your passport renewed. If it has a validity for three more years than you’re good to go.
- Apply for visa appointment if you’re from Punjab/KPK. The waiting time is more than 12 months at the moment, so it is better to do this step first. If you’re from Sindh/Baluchistan, you can skip this step.
- Get your degree and transcript attested from HEC. Online submission is available (this whole process may take between one and three months).
- Look for scholarships and courses on DAAD.de and uni-assist.de (some universities take direct applications on their portals while others ask through uni-assist).
a. Once you’ve shortlisted the courses, keep a track of the dates and the deadline using an Excel sheet.
b. Give IELTs (minimum required score is usually 6.0) and GRE (if applicable)
c. Apply as soon as the applications are open and not when the deadline is near. Some courses have restricted admissions, so it is first come, first served basis.
- Once you’ve received the admission letter, get your blocked account opened.
- Prepare for visa appointment and the required documents mentioned on German embassy’s website.
- Get your travel insurance and flight reservation once your visa is confirmed and submit it to the embassy.
- Receive the stamped passport and fly.
