Enrollment, Entry and Residence


If you are admitted, you will find the admission letter with the enrollment forms for studying at Leuphana University of Lüneburg in the login area of MyCampus. They are usually available as a download within four weeks after application.

Once you have received the notification of admission, you only need to complete the enrollment formalities. You will be informed of the deadline for enrollment in the admission notice and this can also be done online via MyCampus.  Afterwards, all study certificates will be sent out - this includes the student ID card and your semester ticket.

If we are unable to offer you a study place, the rejection notice will be sent to you by mail.

The staff at the Infoportal will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this. Please note the opening hours: Mon-Thurs: 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Fri: 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. You will find the Infoportal in building 8 on campus Universitätsallee 1.

Planning in Advance

International students should find out about valid entry and residence provisions well in advance of their planned arrival. Please note that the following information is only very general – binding information can be provided only by the relevant authorities.

Visa and residence permit regulations

In general, foreign nationals who wish to study in Germany must apply for a student visa in order to enter Germany, for which financial requirements must be met and proof of insurance must be provided. Do not enter Germany with a tourist visa because it cannot be changed into a student visa. Students from EU/EEA countries generally do not need a visa for entry.

Please check here whether you require a visa:

Students from non-EU countries who are studying in an EU member state, please note the following special legal regulation:

Health insurance

In Germany health insurance is compulsory. Therefore, international students must provide proof of adequate health insurance coverage during their stay in Germany. Travel insurance will not be accepted!

Students from countries that have signed the Treaty on Health Care Abroad must only provide proof of health insurance in their home country and along their electronic health insurance card/AT 11. Please note that for working during the study period a public health insurance in germany is compulsory for all students, even for EU citizens. We also recommend taking out private health insurance abroad to cover any additional costs that may arise.

Students from other countries can take out public student health insurance in Germany at a cost of 120 euros per month. It can be arranged in advance online. Alternatively it is possible to enter Germany with a travel insurance and take out health insurance within seven days after arrival. Foreign health insurance will usually not be accepted except if unlimited coverage is guaranteed. In specific cases students can be excused from the health insurance compulsory. Students aged over 30 must take out private health insurance within the first week upon arrival

Please find more information on the German health insurance system here.

Registration of residence

All international students, including those who do not need a visa, must register their place of residence in Lüneburg with the local Registration Office.

The registration of exchange students will be effected during the orientation week. Please register on your own, if you arrive earlier.
