a visa before departure, but upon arrival in Germany. Once in Germany, students
need to apply for a Residence Permit. 

UWL DOES NOT arrange student visas. Students are required to independently
arrange for their student visa and need to be aware that this is a TIME SENSITIVE
requirement that will include an additional out-of-pocket cost.
