What is the eligibility to study MS in Germany?

This blog post is for Indians who intend to study MS in Germany. We will be discussing the eligibility criteria, entry requirements, and the visa application procedure. 

Let’s jump right into it! 

India offers a diverse range of academic programs that cater to different interests and needs but not all the courses one can choose and study like in a foreign country. 

Hence many Indians look for various opportunities to study further after their undergraduate degree education. 

MS or Master of Science 

Master’s degree courses are often referred to in India as MS programs are available in science, engineering, and technological subjects. MS is a common name used for a Master’s degree, especially when one looks for a teaching job or further Ph.D. studies in the future.

Unless one qualify and meet certain eligibility conditions, universities will not accept applications from international students to pursue MS in Germany.
