Depending on nationality and length of stay, exchange students accepted to study at Philipps-Universität Marburg may or may  not need to obtain a visa prior to their arrival in Germany.  In the past, citizens of the US, Canada, Australia, Israel, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand have been able to enter Germany as a tourist, i.e. with only their passport. This tourist visa is valid for 90 days. After arrival in Marburg, exchange students will need to apply for a student residency permit (Aufenthaltstitel).
