Once you have been accepted, you will receive an invitation to the Summer Academy issued by the University of Koblenz for the duration of the courses plus a maximum of two days before and after. The invitation can be submitted to the embassy with your visa application if necessary. If you wish to come earlier or stay longer in Germany or Europe, please let the embassy know when you first enquire about the application process.


It is very important for you to check with your local German embassy or consulate if you will require a visa to enter the Federal Republic of Germany and attend the Summer Academy. The website of the Federal Foreign Office can provide you with some initial information. From past experience with certain countries, it is strongly recommended that you start your visa application as soon as possible.
