Documentation for Indian Students
If you are in India, please have your documents officially certified by a notary.
Alternatively, you can also have your documents certified by the issuing university. The certification must include the university’s seal and a signature by the student administration office, the dean, or the office responsible for examinations.
In all cases, have your documents certified with a stamp in English or German.
International students prefer Germany as a destination for Masters in STEM and related disciplines also because of several opportunities for financial aid and/or fellowships. These are awarded based on individual profiles and university/course requirements. Several positions are available either at the websites of the universities and/or at the official website of DAAD.
