Hey guys.. I have received several PM from many of you and I am sorry I have not been able to respond.
I will give details on how I obtain my EU Blue Card soon....It was never all easy, but all is possible with God.
Like I have said earlier few years ago, your high chances in the german labour market lies in IT.
Will give details later

bro hope you will come talk about this blue card i googled it and it's a very good thing just like green card in USA

In essence, wait till your 3 months visa from Nigeria is about to expire before you renew?

And for further clarifications, one can work with the 3 months visa from Nigeria pending when the much more permanent work permit is out, or do people in your own area take up a temporary one?
I have gotten conflicting and confusing views on this, may be its based on location.
Please and please don't try this in Berlin, less you risk not getting appointment to get your resident permit. Nobody will give you job without your resident and work permit, you will only delay your hustle. Also, here in Berlin you get 2 years straight and it doesn't matter when you applied, it starts reading from the day your visa was issued or from the day you left Nigeria depending on who attend to you.

Everything here is by appointment (even to open a bank account) unlike other small city where you can work up there and be attended to.

Insightful, brother. There are not many people on this thread in Berlin. It beats me why public institutions there have deviated from the tuition-free policy in Germany. They all require you to cough out 4000-5000 per semester.
NB: This premise was arrived at based on my search for MSc programmes in Engineering.

Pls who did their declaration of age at ikeja high court of recent. What is the price? Am getting a ridiculous price.
Re: General German Visa Enquiries Part 2 by daimlerbenz: 4:43pm On Aug 08, 2015
Good to hear Berlin gives 2 years straight. Not so everywhere else and I am sorry for the generalised statement. But without loss of generality, I think I am to a large extent right.

For university ranking, webometrics may not he absolutely trusted for unis between the first 500-700.
Shanghai academic ranking, QS and Times high are much more regarded and if you are specific to Germany, course for course, use CHE rankings. Although you have to register.
Webometrics is still good though for those not within the first 800 or so.

yeah! that's why I was asking because of conflicting reports from different cities. More ever, it will be better to apply while your account is still very heavy since its one of the things some offices may look at in the process of your renewal. By the way all offices provides a temporary working permit for around 13 euros pending when the much more permanent one is ready but if one doesn't request they won't grant it and many students don't know these provisions exist.
Na you for do this interview today o...but somebody don ask you before na...make I no stress my boss

any thing above N600.00 is a rip off. Meet with those guys outside shouting "Affidavit" "affidavit" and they will sort it out. Negotiate around that price.

Here you get your resident and work permit immediately and very day of your appointment. So am not sure that provision applies.

Whollup guyz, whollup just whollup! For the cities that give only 1 year residence permit, does it mean one will have to raise another 8k to renew the permit for the second year?

A REPLY TO EKE40seven's questions...Apologies for late reply..didnt get the notification.

1.I m Cindino20, studying chemistry (Msc in view) at the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany.

2..The difference between Nigerian education system and the German system for me is Research.In Nigeria you ve to imagine everything the labs were nothin to write home about and all that...left for me I did classify what i studied in Nigeria as ALCHEMISTRY(I mean no disrespect to the motherland) but here in Germany I get to do latest research and study with state of the art facilities,work with experts in my field and do collaborative research with Industries.

3. Alot .alot bro..but we made it!!! as a masters student it was assumed that I ve done a lot durin my bachelors thanks to my fancy transcript..but truth be told those course were not taught in depth and there was a gap...I had to fill the gap myself ..my first semester was really tough ..I spent time tryin to bring myself up to speed and all that...but now its just a walk in the park

3. Dont be discouraged ..Dont lose focus...Read!!!..dem nor dey see I know person here make I pass am ......Make friends with people who did their bachelors in ur uni...They know the tricks and will tell you...Connect with Nigerians, Africans or foreign student in ur uni..Have a study buddy that shit u strugglin with can be easy if someone explains it to you.No man is an Island. To an extent how far u succeed in Germany depends on ur graduating grade ..Put some effort!

4 RUB is a large sch...abt 40K students with ca. 3500 intl student ..I did describe it as an healthy one ..even with the locals ..nice and helpin pple with little assho.les of course (nt even christ could pick a 12 without pickin an assho.le).

5. Yes for me language was my main problem. I did just 6weeks course in Nigeria...I m still integrating grin until I ve that Red passport awon EU nationalised citizen...srxly it wasnt that difficult, I believe as a Nigerian that shldnt be much of a problem..

6. A hardworkin student in Nigeria will surpass his/her performance in Nigeria..I normally make a joke that Nigerian student are performing at 30% installed capacity...all dos candle readin..hungry belle maths lack of study materials, lecturer teach A bring B for exam and all that re non existent here...In Germany you can at least perform at 65% installed capacity remaining percent for working if you re lucky enough to be buoyant financially you can perform at 90%..but the key is start to study early and try to know the tricks bro...some lecturers repeat past questions some dont but give model questions and others dont even give anything and the materials here are voluminous you can get 350 pdf pages for just one course (organic chemistry).. so you need to know the trick u can only learn this from students who did their bachelors here or a semester ahead of you

if you spend 6 hrs daily here like everyday...omo na sehr gut u go get now less than 1.5 (Distinction or first class).

7.Distractions for here sad angry..Omo to me Germany is boring..The only shit that was suppose to distract me was clubbin ..oh yea ..but just then u visit the club and they start dancin like teletubbies...keine lust mehr

8. Of course anything is possible..but abeg dont behave like salami who fell in love with a drum lipsrsealed grin...just nor marry the rejected abeg..Tired of seein good lookin black brodas movin around with some drum like lookin women

9. Fucntional smartphoe abeg leave ur Blackberry for Lagos, Laptop, Clothes depends on the weather and season cos as JJC to buy Nike shoe or Timberland for like 140 euros or more go be ur like WAR

10.For Jobs check JObsites like Jobborse Jobmensa Indeed and hookup with Nigerians and Africans ..Germans na so so book matter dem go dey tell u govt dey drop steady for them


I give Bochum 6.0 on a scale of 10..The ruhrgerbeit is an area of vibrant city close to each other so u have Dortmund ESSEN , Duisburg, Dusseldorf and Koln within reach ..thanks to SEmester Ticket

a. Germans are cold ..some re cold like ice
b. They hate late coming..Dont try this in Germany if you re late send an email or call with a vaild reason abeg leave African time for Africa
D. They don't have time for chitchat..they do
E. They are introverts..not all
F. They love beer..majority...heheheheheh One of the reasons why I love Germany
