Information for new students

Have you arrived in Deggendorf and everything is different to life back home?

No worries, our dedicated International Office team accompany and support all international students on their arrival and during their stay in Deggendorf. Here's our support programme:

 

Orientation week

On arriving in Deggendorf, you will take part in an introductory orientation week. In addition to many social events, you will receive detailed course information and practical support with all neccessary formalities; i.e. registering at the town hall, obtaining health insurance, opening a bank account or organizing a student ID card. View the orientation week schedule.

 

Visa/residence permit

Shortly after you arrival in Deggendorf (and usually during Orientation week), the International Office will help you with your residence permit. You will have to fill out several forms before obtaining the permit from the local council offices. This permit expires if you de-register from the university, change courses, change universities, or not complete your studies or drop out. Following permit expiry, you are required to immediately leave Germany as any further residency in Germany would be illegal and is therefore liable to criminal prosucution. A change of course or university is possible only with the consent of the immigration office. Please contact the office before undertaking any change. 

If you require a permit extension, submit a renewal application at the Immigration Office in Deggendorf (see following address) before your current permit expires.

You may work parellel to your studies, but only for 120 calendar days or 240 half days per year. Please also refer to information from the district of Deggendorf.
