Here is the part 8


An incredible job by all contributors including those who ask questions and those who provide answers, job well done!

This is part 7 https://www.nairaland.com/5296943/general-german-student-visa-enquiries

The following steps will help newbies (Thanks to CassieV for the tips)


Most of the schools in Germany are tuition free even for international students, you only get to pay a certain amount as semester fees say between 100-400 euros and most times the semester fee comes with a semester ticket to aid in transportation in your city or town.
However, before you're granted a student visa, you have to prove that you can take care of your living expenses with one of the following means ;
1. Block account: The estimated living expenses for a student in a month is 720euros, when you multiply that by 12 months, you get 8640euros. This is the amount you're required to block in an already opened account with either Deutsch bank, Fintiba or Xpatrio. It is called a block account because you will not be able to withdraw everything at once, only 720euros will be released to you every month.
2. Sponsorship letter: If you have a relative living and working legally in Germany, they can get you this letter. They'll have to visit the alien office in their city and will be required to provide some documents and pay a certain fee. The letter will be sent to you when they receive it so that you can go with it for your visa interview.
3. Scholarship: This is usually the best if you have the scholarship, your visa will be granted in under 2 weeks after interview. So try and look for scholarships you can apply to.

Now that you understand the financial situation, let's go into the application process.
To search for schools, click on this link
https://www.daad.de/deutschland/studienangebote/international-programmes/en/?p=l&q=&fos=0&lang[]=2&fee[]=0&sortBy=1&page=1&display=list
filter your search to make it easier, there are English taught courses there.
Generally, the very important documents needed to apply to schools in Germany are;
1. Transcript
2. English Proficiency
3. School Certificates (Degree, Waec, etc)
However, depending on the school, some other documents needed are as follows.
4. Curriculum Vitae
5. Motivation letter
6. Reference letters
7. GRE test
8. Etcetera.. Visit your prospective school website and find out the documents they need from you.
Note: You don't apply with your original documents, you have to make photocopies of them and Certify them in High court or a Notary public. If you stay in Lagos, you can certify at the German Embassy too. You'll have to book appointment for that.
For those planning to go for a Bachelors course, you need a 100level transcript from a university to apply for a BSc program in germany. WAEC alone will not be enough and No, OND will not do, you need a HND.


For the application proper, it is always important to go through the website of the schools you want to apply to, you'll get a lot of information form there concerning how to apply. Some schools do only online applications, some requires that you send your application documents to them by post after applying online, some you send your documents as pdf to their email address and then you get the uni assist crew.
Like I said earlier, it is important to go visit and read the websites.

When you get your admission letter, open a block account immediately(that is if you don't already have a sponsorship letter) and as soon as you get your account details, send an email to the embassy requesting for a visa interview date.
You need these to get an interview date:
1. Admission letter
2. Block account/sponsorship letter/scholarship letter
3. International passport data page(scanned)
Then your Full name and Resident address.

Prepare for your interview
Go for your interview

Good morning my people, i hail! Please, i need help with these issues.

1. What is the consequence of registering with fintiba for over three months without funding the account?
(because am yet to get AD). I intend to fund immediately i get a date, I hope there's no issue with this.

2. Please, can anyone here help with age declaration format/template on the content and how it should be compose, am afraid of getting the wrong one at the court. After, money must have changed hands..

I pray this part we be fruitful for us all.

Hello Everyone. I'm glad to be here grin
I was referred to this page by a friend, how I wish I was part of this thread earlier.

I got a conditional admission letter for Masters Pre- Study yesterday at Fulda University. I was told I have to Deposit €300 for the pre study fee before Jan 15 (Next week) and the course will be commencing on the 17th February of this year. According to what I have read from the part 7 thread, I think Visa processing takes at least 3 months. So I'm confused. I need an advice pls !!! Is it possible to get a Visa before Feb 17th ??

It's like we UNIBREMEN hopefuls are plenty o. Also CMM and no news yet. Although they have it on their website that the admission process is turn by turn.

They have been saying 2 weeks since last Thursday.


Let's give update as soon as status changes.

Hi guys, I was referred to this page by a friend and I'm blessed to be here.

Please may I get suggestions of schools that do not require me applying through uni assist and whose admission process is fast. I want to know so I can apply, gain admission and book for an interview while I make proper applications to my main choice of school.

Will appreciate your responses
