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.

Entry requirements

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. 

Visa information

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.

Speak to an official representative

Solent has a number of official representatives around the world. They give you the chance to talk about opportunities here at Southampton Solent with someone in your own country.
