    Hello admin,
    I am planning to study in Germany starting from April. I’ve applied to various public and private universities. My courses are all in English but I’ve heard to get a student visa you need to pass A-1 of German language proficiency course. Is it true? And even if you’re planning to take German in my first semester in university still do I need to take a German language course. I am applying from Pakistan. Any sort of help will be great.
