Entrance and residence regulationsRead out
The regulations for entrance and residence of students and scholars are probably very different in your homeland. In light of this, you should be sure to find out in plenty of time, which conditions and deadlines apply to you. You can get independent information concerning this at the Auswärtiges Amt der Bundesrepublik Deutschland (Department of Forein Affairs), the City of Munich and here on some rivately run homepages (no responsibility for foreign contents): www.germany-visa.org/student-visa/ * , or www.studying-in-germany.org/german-student-visa/ *.
Further important information about everything you need to know about coming to Germany to study or research can be found at the website of the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) (German Academic Exchange Service), also here and here.
Especially this leaflet (dating from January 2017) provides extensive "Information on the Statutory Frameworks applicable to Entry and Residence by Foreign Students, Academics and Scientists".
Even the city o Munich offers much information.
