 A scholarship is not always awarded on the basis of the financial situation of the applicant. A student can only secure financial aid by meeting all the various criteria set by scholarship providers.
So many students dream of studying abroad today, but not all of them have a financial opportunity to do that. Yes, it's clear that such an education can't be cheap because it requires so much expenses from a student and his parents... Anyway, there are some ways to study abroad for free, and all of them are related to this or that form of financial help from universities themselves, a country, and private or public funds.

Let's check what forms of such a financial help you can get if you dream of studying abroad, but you do not know what to start with.

1. Grants

This is a general term that often refers to any free financial help on specific purposes. It does not require a cash return.

Grants may be awarded in the form of social help to applicants who are not able to cover all costs of studying abroad. In this case, an applicant should provide documentary evidences of his financial situation.

There is also another form of grants, which are given to cover all costs of some scientific projects for example. In this case, a grant serves as a way to attract or encourage the best applicant, and that is why it is given regardless of their financial situation.

1. Choose a university Choosing a university
So, you’ve decided on Germany as your study abroad destination – now it’s time to choose the right course and university for you. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has a database of almost 17,000 programs available to search from, including 88 programs in English. Unfortunately opportunities to study in Germany in English at undergraduate level are currently quite limited, though there are some courses taught in both English and German (typically starting with English for the first two to four semesters and then changing to German). This allows you to study in English while improving your proficiency in German, particularly as your university may offer German language classes.

You may also like to consider the latest rankings of the top universities in Germany while making your decision, or check the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject to find the top German institutions in your field. When choosing a university and a course you should also make sure the course content suits you. Check the information provided on the official websites of universities you’re considering, and get in touch to request more detail if needed.

You should also consider the location. Are you interested in living in cool capital Berlin, immersed in the traditional Bavarian culture of Munich, amidst the skyscrapers of financial hub Frankfurt, or in a quieter student city such as Göttingen?

2. Check the admission requirements Admissions test
Before applying, check that your current qualifications are recognized by your chosen university. To study in Germany you need to have a recognized Hochschulzugangsberechtigung (HZB), meaning ‘higher education entrance qualification’. This can come in many formats, particularly for international students who have gained their school-leaving qualifications in a different country.

Admission to Medical Study in Germany
Admission to medical universities in Germany is competitive and restrictive. Medical education Germany is free and the main admission requirements are high school diploma and Germany language skills. Only Master in medical studies are available in English language.
There are admission restrictions for degree courses in medicine at all universities in Germany. When selecting applicants the universities can take into account not only the average mark of the qualifications entitling the applicant to go to university but also other criteria, for example grades in certain subjects, the results of an interview, a vocational qualification gained before applying to university, the student’s preferred university etc. What is also important is the waiting period for a university place. 
University applicants from a member state of the European Union (EU), from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway or foreign nationals and stateless persons who have gained German qualifications entitling them to go to university (so-called “Bildungsinländer”) are treated as equal to German applicants and, like them, always have to apply via the Internet portal of the Foundation for Higher Education Admission (Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung).
All other international applicants for university places who fulfil the basic requirements for starting a degree course at a German university apply directly to their preferred university, which will also inform them about admission requirements for the degree course. Depending on the university, up to five percent of the university places are reserved for this group of applicants.
