grade)
5. One copy of TOEFL or IELTS score (if

Please be aware that if you are a non-native
English speaker you will need to proof your

follow the classes at the KLU. Short telephone
interviews with the nominees conducted by
the KLU are possible to assess your English

INTRANET myKLU
All information relevant for the students,
ranging from the updates of the schedules,
the course descriptions, the examination
process, the library online access and much
more are available via our intranet, called
MyKLU. Once the exchange students are
registered and have submitted all documents
they will receive an email containing the login
credentials for MyKLU. Please check MyKLU
on a regular basis.
HEALTH INSURANCE
When you enroll at the KLU, you must
demonstrate proof of health insurance as
prescribed by German law. Furthermore, you
will usually not get a residence permit without
proof of adequate health insurance. Foreign
health insurance policies are only accepted if
the country has an official agreement with
Germany. This applies mainly to EU countries.
2 out of 6

Students from the EU, including Norway:


There is an EU agreement which guarantees
free medical treatment for EU citizens,
including Norway, in Germany. Therefore
students from these countries should contact
the health department in their home country
in order to obtain a European Health
Insurance Card (which replaces E111 (B), E110,
E119 and E128). It is imperative that your
health insurance is valid for the whole period
of studies; otherwise, please make sure that
you are able to renew your insurance from
Germany before its expiry date. If you are not
covered by statutory health insurance, you
must submit confirmation that your stay in
Germany will be covered by private health
insurance.
Students from other countries:
Students from other countries that have an
agreement with Germany regarding social
security, including an insurance clause, can
continue to be insured in their home
countries. In order to be exempt from German
health insurance you will need confirmation
from a local health insurance agency.
All other students:
Students from other countries that dont have
an agreement with Germany regarding health
insurance are required by law to take out a
German student health insurance upon arrival.
Students who have spent less than 14
semesters studying at a university and who
are under the age of 30 (with some
exemptions) are eligible for the Statutory
Health Insurance scheme. If you are 30 years
old or above, you can opt for a private
insurance scheme. However, once you have
opted out of the state insurance scheme, it is
almost impossible to opt back in. Therefore
you should consider very carefully the
advantages and disadvantages of both
schemes. Non-EU citizens who reside in
Germany at least 6 but no more than 60
months can get special health insurance
policies with substantially lower premiums.

VISA
In accordance with international treaties and
agreements, Germany does not require a visa
from citizens of the EU, Australia, Japan,
Canada,
Israel, New
Zealand,
USA,
Switzerland, Honduras, Monaco, Norway, and
San Marino. Citizens of all other nations have
to obtain a visa to study in Germany.
However, there are different kinds of visas
and you have to pay attention as not every
type of visa is applicable. There are two kinds
of visas:
Student applicant visa: a visa for applicants for
a place to study, valid before university
confirmation of acceptance for a maximum of
three months. Directly after admission, the
student applicant visa has to be converted
into a student visa.
Student visa: The duration of a student visa is
dependent on your available funds to cover
your living cost in Germany. In order to
receive it, the candidate has to present the
official letter of admission of KLU as well as
other documents. One of the most important
documents is proof of sufficient financial
funding to finance the candidates stay in
Germany for at least the period of the
exchange program. Please contact the
German diplomatic representation in your
home country for more details concerning the
application requirements and procedure. It
may be advisable to start the visa application
process before receiving the admission from
KLU as, in some cases, students have to wait
for three or more months before getting final
confirmation.
Please note that a tourist visa or a so-called
Schengen visa CANNOT be converted into a
student visa. Therefore do not apply for such a
visa if you want to do an exchange program
with the Khne Logistics University.
If you intend to enter Germany more than
once (e.g. after travelling), we recommend
that you get a multiple entry visa.
