Student Applicant Visa (Visum Zur Studienbewerbung)

The student applicant visa is for non-Germans who have applied to a German University. They may have applied for preparatory courses, or been confirmed as applicants with high prospects for admission. However, they have not been officially admitted, as they have other conditions or requirements to fulfil. For instance, sitting for an examination or attending an interview. Also, it could be a practical test. In short, this type of visa is meant for foreigners who have conditional admissions at a German university.
