Yes, its true to some extent that certain universities, such as the University of Münster, Goethe University Frankfurt and the University of Cologne, do not charge tuition fees. Administration fees, however, may apply.

Think of Germany and the idea of studying Engineering comes to our mind. This is partly because Germany is on the top when it comes to Engineering. But there are so many options available to students from which they can choose to study in Germany apart from Engineering. From generic courses similar to Management, Business Administration to niche courses e.g Astrophysics, Biotechnology, Music Production and Sound Engineering, students can explore any study program they want in Germany.
Germany offers many scholarships to international students. Students can access the German Academic Exchange Service if they want to learn more about official scholarships. Scholarships are actually based on the country of origin. International students can get financial assistance and funding from the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst). Another source for financial help is Deutschlandstipendium. Eligible students get a monthly stipend of 150 euros per month and 150 euros more by the Federal Government. Apart from the 300 Euros, several universities and/or private sponsors support Deutschlandstipendium holders by providing students mentoring programs, internships and access to networking events. Although the basic criteria to avail the benefits of these funding programs remains the academic merit, there are cases where the student's overall achievements and social commitments are taken into consideration.
You can study in German public universities with no tuition fees but the competition to get into these universities is very tough. Since, German public universities do not charge tuition fees that does not mean students do not pay anything at all. Because apart from the tuition fee, there are other charges per semester like Enrollment, Confirmation, and Administration. However, these are more than affordable as it adds up to around 250 euros i.e INR 19,500. Apart from this, students can obtain a Semesterticket which is actually a travel pass for students for six months duration. On the other hand, private universities take tuition fees but they are comparatively cheaper than the other European alternatives. Pursuing a Bachelor's degree from a private German university may cost approximately 20,000 Euros per year.
For Masters from public universities also, there is no tuition fee but the charges for enrollment, confirmation, administration and the Semesterticket may apply. For nil tuition fee, it must be considered as 'consecutive', that is, Masters should directly follow on from a related bachelor’s degree gained in Germany itself. For non-consecutive Masters, the cost may be around 20,000 Euros (Public universities) to 30,000 Euros per year (Private universities). The cost of living in Germany is less as compared to other popular study destinations and the major cost is spent in accommodation.
Students obviously require a student visa to study in Germany and there are two categories and three types of VISA. If a student's study program is for three months duration, they will need a Schengen VISA and if a student stay beyond three months, they must have the German national VISA.
German student visas are divided into three types:
⦿ German Student VISA is the standard visa for students who have been enrolled into any German university or college and will begin full-time university programs.
⦿ German Student Applicant VISA is for students who are in Germany for admissions into any University or College. It is only valid for the admission process and cannot be used to stay and study.
⦿ German Language Course VISA is needed to study any German language course in Germany.
After availing the German national visa, students need to obtain the Resident Permit for studies before the entry visa expires. List of visa requirements to study in Germany are below:

⦿ Proof of admission in a German university
⦿ A valid health insurance
⦿ Proof of previous education such as degrees, diplomas or certificates, from the attended school or colleges
While most countries do accept IELTS, PTE or TOEFL test scores for admissions to universities and colleges, Germany has specific requirements. Several Public universities in Germany ask for students' scores in German-proficiency tests. These are compulsory for students who wish to pursue any course in Germany and sometimes students need to appear for both the English-proficiency tests like IELTS, PTE or TOEFL and the German-proficiency tests.
⦿ Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache (TestDaF)
⦿ Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (DSH)
⦿ Goethe-Zertifikat C2
⦿ Telc Deutsch C1
⦿ Deutsches Sprachdiplom (Level II)
Depending on the University or Course, students might also have to appear for GRE or GMAT.
It is advised to consult your geniusedu consultant and get updated information about which tests and entrances one needs to appear for before being eligible for admissions.
