“Anyone who wants to undergo vocational training or study for a degree must be able to speak German sufficiently well. If you wish to undertake vocational training, you should reach level B2 beforehand, for prospective degree students level C1 is required. To learn German you can attend one or more language courses. Cities or municipalities offer many language courses, therefore it is worth asking the city or municipality in which you live. Adult Education Centres (VHS) also offer language courses. In addition, I recommend free online language courses, such as those found in the “Deutsche Welle” or the “Ankommen” App. At some universities it is also possible to attend language courses at the Language Centre as a guest student. Here as well the rule is: ask!
