I got my visa in 2018 and have traveled already. My background is in IT. I don't know your background but I believe if you can prove that there is a requirement for your skillset in Germany, then you should be fine.

Try and quote stats from the German government resources like this one to prove that they need your skills and that you will likely get a job: https://www.make-it-in-germany.com/en/jobs/job-listings/

Okay. My background is in the non teaching aspect of education. I got my masters and post graduate diploma in the UK in education and career guidance, and have experience working in a college and school there for 3.5 years. My fear is the language because of my field started learning German but haven't really gone far.

Okay, will do. Thank you very much for the suggestions. I will keep you posted.

Hi Oikotass.
Engineering is in demand in Germany. This website shows that there are more than 1,700 openings at the moment: https://www.make-it-in-germany.com/en/jobs/job-listings/
You have to check each job description to see if they require German language proficiency. You can start applying for jobs from Nigeria as some companies help with relocation (if they really like you). I will also recommend starting German classes in Naija before you travel. It's cheaper and it will help you integrate better and get many more job interview invitations. B1 German proficiency and above is usually required for most jobs.

Check this website to see if your university and course is recognized by the German authorities: https://anabin.kmk.org/anabin.html

You can print the page showing the results and take it as part of your supporting documents for your interview at the German Consulate in Naija.

I just checked the site, everything is in German, how do I check or change the language to English so I can get to do one or two things

yes you can study and work, but that will be limited hours for students.

And you made mention of having someone in Germany i believe the person will be the best person to guide you and answer most of your questions so please try and have good communication with him/her.

Hopefully something pops up soonest! What's your discipline? I am skeptical because my discipline is in the non-teaching aspect of education. I have been learning German for a while but still on the basics. Do you think I stand a chance? @togobingi I would like your honest opinion too.
...
please are they job for education students in Germany?

That's what I am trying to find out myself. smiley but I thinking most might be influenced on the level of German spoken. But that's just me speculating!

Try and use Google Chrome, it should translate the page to English for you.

I would say you should still book the appointment anyway. It might be shorter, who knows

I was told that I would hear back from them in within 4-8 weeks but I heard back from them in a week, so you never know. If you are in Lagos, I would also recommend asking the protocol officers outside the German Consulate for guidance. Nothing to lose at this point.

All the best!


Thanks!!
I have booked the appointment. The stated one shouldn't contact them in the email confirmation ( clear warning like don't disturb us).
I stay in abuja.

Yea i am hoping to see that email.
pharmacy is my field.
yea you can get, there are lecturing jobs ( i have seen that in during one of my search it was for anyone who could speak English but can't remember the site) there are also teaching jobs in international schools.

Try and make a lot of research on your field to ascertain the areas you are eligible to apply but i am sure you will find.

Learning the language is good even if it isn't required please learn it.

Hello OP
Are they going to ask for BTA at the point of entry?
If yes how much should someone hold in cash?

I think you need to show proof of 4320 EUR in a blocked account. That's 720EUR per month for 6 months since the visa is valid for 6 months.

So I have decided to book the appointment too which is the first thing I am doing. Yes it wrote 14-16 months but hopefully it is not long. I thought you booked yours in February? Anyway like you said do other things in process which is the plan.
