We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Germany can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.
For more specific advice about coming from Germany to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Germany offices or our own international advice team.
As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses. Students should hold an Abitur.
For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree.
As an EEA national you do not need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK.
EU financial support
EU students are entitled to apply for some financial support in the UK: a tuition fee loan and an EU bursary. See our information on EU student funding.
If you are studying at one of our academic partner institutions, you may be able to enter the second or third year of one of our undergraduate courses. This can allow you to extend your learning and obtain a British undergraduate qualification. We hold partnership agreements with the following institution in Germany:
