Visa related information:

Non-European students need a Visa and/or German Residence Permit. It is every students’ responsibility to investigate in advance on this matter. The Visa application process takes a minimum of 6-10 weeks! It is every student’s responsibility to apply in time/be on campus in time. At some embassies it might take very long to get a Visa appointment. The embassy/consulate of your home country will forward your Visa application files to the responsible immigration office in Germany. Each big city or sub-urban area in Germany has its own immigration office. The responsible immigration office for Oestrich-Winkel is the immigration office “Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis”. The city of Wiesbaden is located nearby. Most EBS students prefer to live in Oestrich-Winkel or in the surrounding towns (Rheingau Area). However, some students might also wish to live in Wiesbaden. Wiesbaden does not belong to the Rheingau Area. It is a city and as its own immigration office. IF - when applying for your Visa - you already know that you are going to live in Wiesbaden: please make sure that the embassy/consulate is forwarding your Visa files to the immigration office in Wiesbaden.

Housing/Residence and Food Info:

This service works on a “first come first serve basis”. Students receive emails with housing offers Uafter admission to EBS (approximately June / November) and can choose an accommodation out of the offering. Booking can be done with the EBS housing coordinator.


For more and further information, please see the housing webpage ( and wait for the introductory mail.


Health Insurance:

By law, every student at a German university has to prove adequate health insurance which covers you against any illness or hospitalization. This is also applicable for all international students registered at EBS for exchange or for degree programmes. You will only receive your admission documents from EBS if you have provided proof of adequate insurance. Emergency travel insurance plans are NOT considered sufficient cover! Sometimes your home insurance plan covers you during studies abroad! Check with your insurer before purchasing a new plan! Since Spring 2014 it is mandatory for all exchange students staying at EBS for more than 1 semester to provide a German public health insurance plan (except you can provide a European Health Insurance Card).

If you come from a non EU Member country, you will most likely need to purchase additional health cover for studying in Germany. Please keep in mind that emergency travel coverage is NOT sufficient to get a student residence permit! You need an insurance plan for STUDYING in Germany! The German immigration office is very strict, which plans they accept for your visa/residence permit application. EBS will recommend certain insurance plans acceptable for visa and immigration matters when issuing your admission documents.


Estimated Cost of Attendance;

  • Total: from € 750 - € 1000 per month

To get from Frankfurt Main airport to EBS is very straightforward. There are regular trains and S-bahn trains (faster urban train) which take you to Wiesbaden.

At the airport follow the signs for the regional train station (Regional Bahnhof). The price of an adult one-way ticket from Frankfurt Main International Airport to EBS Business School is currently 8,35 €. The machine takes coins and usually 5 €, 10 € and 20 € bills. Please note, that you need to travel almost immediately after purchasing the ticket and you cannot travel on Intercity (IC) or Intercity express (ICE) trains.

Allow approx 1 ½ hours for your journey (including connections and waiting time). For more information, please refer to Frankfurt airport is approx. 45 km (40 minutes by car) from EBS


Student Support Services:

We want you to feel "at home" when you arrive. To help you settle in, every visiting student will be allocated to a student "buddy". A "buddy" is an EBS student who has volunteered to take care of you during your initial time at our university. He/she is responsible for: introducing you to social life at EBS, showing you around the area, providing you with inside knowledge on student life at EBS.

A student initiative called "International Student Relations" (ISR) is dedicated to the buddy allocation process and to assisting international students in getting to know EBS. They organize parties, cultural trips and social events of all kinds. Newly admitted exchange students can expect to hear from them via email regarding upcoming events, etc. This service is at the moment only applicable for international business students.


EBS offers a variety of services for its guest students, such as for example

  1. The International Programmes Office,
  2. A student buddy service organized by the student group ISR,
  3. Academic counseling,
  4. Coaching Service,
  5. Career Service Center,
  6. And an EBS student organization will help to integrate the exchange students at EBS.
