VISA / OTHER

Visa & Residence Permit: Germany is part of the Schengen Borders Agreement. USA citizens and students from some other nationalities (for example from Australia, Israel, Japan, Canada, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, and the European Union) do not need a visa prior to entering Germany. All Non-EU citizens staying in Germany for more than 3 months must officially obtain a residence permit after you arrive in Germany.  Those who do need a visa (for example students from China, India, Thailand and Turkey) must apply in their home country before traveling to Germany.  More information on Visas and Residence Permits

Registering for courses: Upon arrival, students will get access to the WHU intranet where they can register for the courses they want to take at WHU during their exchange period. Registering for courses before arriving at WHU is not possible as the whole process is done through the WHU intranet.
At the beginning of the semester, there will be a detailed information session on how to register for courses in the WHU intranet.

WHU Buddy Program: At WHU, each exchange student is assigned two buddies: a student buddy as well as an academic buddy. This way we aim at providing individual guidance to everybody. Learn more about the Buddy Program.
