International Students at CODE
At CODE students from over 62 countries are studying and this number is increasing every year.
The first lesson I learnt from the day I joined CODE, is to never EVER doubt yourself but always be skeptical of what’s around you.Fran Khayat
Do you have what it takes? Our admissions process is designed to identify if you are the type of student who will realize his or her potential at CODE and become a valuable part of our learning community.
There are four steps and several challenges to complete in your personal journey to CODE. We will not give you all the details here, but here you can find some information about it – and the option to take the first step (register for your personal account).
German regulations for higher education require you to have a higher-education entrance qualification (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung) to enroll in a Bachelor’s degree program. That usually means a high school diploma/certificate, but depending on where you went to school, you might need to take further steps.
We will do a check of your qualifications once you complete the challenge in our admission process. Here are a few ways for you to check your eligibility before then:
If you are from outside the EU, you will need a student visa to move to Germany and start your studies at CODE. Your best course of action would be to contact the German embassy in your country as early as possible to get the specifications for the process.
In general, you will have to meet these requirements for a student visa:
Sources might also tell you that you will need a certificate that proves sufficient German skills. As our study program is in English, you won’t need that for CODE.
We recommend that you plan on it taking up to 3 months to complete the visa process. Assistance from CODE for our admitted students will include support during the visa process in your home country and also once you arrive in Germany.
Please note that we do not offer accommodation, scholarships, or any commitment to assume cost-of-living expenses for you.

By reading the website carefully, you can already find a lot of useful information about studying at CODE. The CODE team was super helpful during my application process and answered right away if I had questions. Don’t hesitate to ask. I applied to the university when I was back home in Indonesia, and regardless of the distance or the time difference, the team was always approachable. I can recommend you to find students already studying at CODE and ask them all the questions that you might have.Sasha Astiadi, student at CODE
CODE is a place where great change is happening – most important a change in education. Students and faculty stick together, no matter where you are from or what you are trying to solve. If you are a dedicated person the level of learning is immense.Martin Straußberger
