The requirements for processing the visa to enter Germany as a student are detailed on the English version of the German Embassy’s website under Studies and language courses visa

In order to apply for a visa, you must make an appointment with the Embassy. This can only be done online and should be done punctually – the Embassy requires a processing time of 6-9 weeks, so you must make the appointment at least 9 weeks before you intend to travel.

The Embassy normally issues a three month visa. The student must then travel to Germany and register there. After that, an appointment must be made with the Aliens Office, who will then process the visa for the remainder of the time.  Questions about the duration of the visa, requirements, employment regulations etc. must be addressed directly to the Aliens Office. Each student is assessed on an individual basis.
