eke40seven how are you,long time,do U remember me in the German Visa thread?, pls I have question for you, pls all my things are in place but I'm finding it hard with Goeth institution,they say I will school for a year or more with them to get to the level I want,please is there a way to bypass goeth cert issues on visa application,what if my school is teaching with English, another is after admission and everything is in place,can I Use visit visa to go and start studies ?.
1. You don't need to spend a day in a Geothe to get a visa, its not an absolute criteria.
2. If your course is entirely taught in English, 95% of the time, proof of German proficiency will not be required. However, knowledge of the language could be useful for your day to day communication.
3. No, you can't use visit visa for student visa, they are different things.

Hope you find it helpful.

Good luck!

well one can actually work for approximately 90 days in a year. let's say you're paid 10 euro per hour, could be more in a place like Stuttgart, do the Math...
u would earn enough to take care of yourself for the next year and slightly more which would later be taxed

It is actually 120 days and not 90.

14. Will I be allowed to work while
studying in Germany?
A foreign (not a citizen of an EU or EEA
member country – with the exception of
Bulgaria and Romania which face restrictions
until 2014) student studying full-time in
Germany is legally allowed to work a
maximum of 120 full (or 240 half) days within a
year, without having to obtain a permission
from German employment authorities.
The legally allowed number of working days
(half days) for foreign students also includes
voluntary work placements, regardless of
whether the placement is paid or unpaid. Also,
foreign students face an additional restriction:
while working the legally allowed number of
days (or half days), they cannot be self-
employed or work on a freelance basis. You
can find more information here!

15. Can my spouse/husband who will
accompany me in Germany work
too?
Spouses/Husbands accompanying foreign
students may, under certain conditions, be
permitted to work. If you are planning on
having your husband or wife accompany you
during your studies in Germany and hope
they’ll be allowed to work, they must fully
disclose their intention to work when applying
for the visa.

16. Will I be liable to pay taxes in
Germany?
It is the amount of money you’ve earned
working as well as the duration of your stay in
Germany, that determine whether you have to
pay taxes or not. You are exempt from having
to pay taxes if your stay in Germany doesn’t
exceed six months and/or if you haven’t made
more than €450 per month (considered to be
income from a so-called ‘mini-job’ and
therefore tax and pension contribution
exempt) working in Germany.
If your annual gross income is less than €8,130
you will get all the taxes you paid refunded
back to you at the end of the year when you
file your tax return with tax authorities.
Shalom

LOL!!! Money must be made!!! But...

A full day is made up of 5-8hours (not more than 8hrs), while a half-day is 4hrs or less...

You are not allowed to work more than 960hours per year as a student

Hello good people of NL, I'm currently studying in Lithuania (English Language) and not a degree awarding program, i registered through an agent the man told me i will get my TRP after 5 months, the program is just a nine month program but when i got to Lithuania the school made me to understand that i can't get their TRP only if i put in for degree program which is about 3000Euro per year meanwhile they don't allow student to work in the country so i decided to go and continue my studies in Germany since i have someone who's willing to sponsor me in Germany but i only have my WAEC which is the same issue that was recently address above my post. Please can anyone link me in Germany where i can do any shity job even if its 7-10euro an hour in Germany in order to pay my school fee in Lithuania or if there is any other option open for me to get the admission in Germany or any other in country in shengen, I still have 5months on my visa.
