Not necessary, if you are a EU citizen. If you need a visa, we send the invitation you need in order to apply for it. We make sure that you get all the necessary documents that the German embassy in your country wants.
If you want to do the Abitur - the German high school leaving certificate, that allows you to study in Germany -, you will have to spend at least the final 2 school years prior to the final Abitur exams in Germany (class 11 and 12). You can do Abitur at these boarding schools.
