Whether you need a visa to study in Germany depends on your country of origin.
Foreign students from EU member states as well as from a number of other countries do not need a visa to enter Germany. Nevertheless, you must report to the relevant Foreigners' Registration Office after your arrival and apply for a residence permit. Do not enter Germany with a tourist visa, as this will not allow you to enrol! For current and binding information on study visas, proof of funding, etc., please visit these websites:
