Exams & Fees
Students who have already learned some German can be placed into the appropriate course after
completing a placement test.
German visa regulations require health insurance coverage for the entire stay. The average price
is around 30,00 EUR per month. We work with two different agencies, but the choice is free.
Non-EU students need a language-course visa if they are going to take classes for more than three months.
We will issue a statement that must be submitted to the German Embassy, along with the other necessary documents.
Please note that this certificate can only be issued if the completed course registration form has been handed
in and the course fee has been paid in advance!
As it usually takes 4-12 weeks for the visa to be granted (which depends on the home country of the applicant),
students should allow this time when they are planning their stay.
If the Embassy denies a visa or if the visa will not be issued until after the beginning of the course,
students are required to notify us immediately. Otherwise the fees cannot be refunded.
The first visa is always valid for three month only and can be extended to one year (in some cases even
up to 18 months).
We strongly recommend contacting the German Embassy prior to course registration to inquire about regulations.

To give students an idea of the living costs in Germany, we have made up an example:
|Rent (all incl.)
(train, tram, etc.)
This is the minimum amount of money necessary per month. Living costs certainly depend on one's
personal lifestyle, but students should not have less than this amount available.
Non EU-students with a language-course visa are not allowed to work in Germany!
ARRIVAL IN GERMANY
Students with a room reservation can be met at the train station or the bus station and be taken to their accommodation. there is a
shuttle-service from Frankfurt Airport to Heidelberg:
Shuttle-Service Frankfurt Airport FRA - Heidelberg
Shuttle-Service Frankfurt/Hahn Airport - Heidelberg
Shuttle-Service Baden/Karlsruhe Airport - Heidelberg
Every student will be given detailed information and a city map.
Arrivals are on Sunday before the course starts (10 am - 8 pm) and departures on Saturday after the course ended (10 am - 4 pm).
Students are required to register with the Office of Foreign Affairs one week on arrival. As this office is in the vicinity, the Pädagogium can take care of the registration.
