Have you tried to research how nursing Ausbildung is in Germany?....

Hey, welcome. I think I have come across your moniker in German thread as well as Daniel Houston thread.

Well, going by information shared so far, if you are applying from Nigeria, your sponsor should be in Nigeria for easier verification. In same vain, if you are applying from Germany, I think it would be best if your sponsor comes from Germany or one of the EU countries. When I mean by applying, I specifically meant the visa application. My opinion though.

Hi thanks for replying, I currently live in and study in Germany, the information is for a relative not me smiley.

HI, I will like to pm in regards to admission process, If you don't mind.

Travel / Re: General-german-student-visa-enquiries Part 8 by janettee(f): 2:21pm On Sep 01, 2020

Yes, I'm talking Bachelors, Masters is 3-4 semesters (Standard).

You mind telling me the school name please. I'm yet to see one. Thanks.

THU, Ulm. Their computer science program is 4 years.

The bolded is false, for university of applied sciences.

I don't know any university, applied or technical that the standard semester for bachelors is 8 semesters.

Normally, the standard is 6 or 7, depending if the course requires mandatory 1 semester of internship in the industry.

I'm talking about Bachelor degrees, it's 4 years. At least the one I applied for is 4 years(8 semesters).

I don't think it has anything to do with PhD. The difference is just like University of Technology and Ordinary University; just in the case of Nigeria. Whichever way, you can still apply and be selected for your PhD if you decided to further your studies.

It's not like in Nigeria and yes it has everything to do with PhD. In Germany you have Technical Universities(TU9 for example), normal Universities and then Universities of Applied Science.

If you are not interested in PhD, then simply go to a University of Applied Science. Universities in Germany are meant to educate future researchers, University of Applied Science aren't set up like that cause it's more practical than research based hence why it's hard to be accepted into a PhD program after going to a University of Applied Science.

A degree in a University would take you 3 years, whereas in a University of Applied Science, it's 4 years.

Also, if you did your BSc in a german University of Applied Science and want to do your masters in a normal University, you will see that in most cases you will be required to write an aptitude test or you will be rejected because you didn't do the required courses in your Bsc.

If you attend a Studienkolleg in a University of Applied Science, you are only required to apply to Universities of Applied Science afterwards.

University graduates are also paid more, although the difference isn't that much.

There's a whole lot of difference, if you research deeper. It really depends on what you want to study because in IT for example, most people would want to work after their masters so it doesn't really matter.

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to y'all.
I'm in need of clarification on this issue. I made findings on the differences between University of Applied Sciences and Universität/Technical Universities in Germany for Masters program and I found out that the formal doesn't seem to prepare one for research study like the latter and they also focus more on practical than theory. Does this mean attending Uni. Of Applied Sciences is a waste of time for someone who wishes to pursue a Doctoral program eventually?

How easy will it be to obtain a Ph.d admission into a Technical University with a Masters degree qualification from a university of Applied Sciences?
In essence, won't the awarded certificate be subjected to discrimination both home and abroad? (because as I found out, it's more a less a vocational college in Nigeria)

..or it's not as bad as I think?

If you want to do PhD, go to a University otherwise go to a University of Applied Sciences.

If you are in IT, it doesn't really matter tbh but in other courses some companies prefer university graduates over those who attended University of Applied Science.

It depends on what you want to do in the future after studying.


You can use Google translate to read the article but if you really want to do PhD, I will advise you not to go to a University of Applied Science.

Travel / Re: Being Black In Berlin/germany by janettee(f): 11:02am On Aug 26, 2020
This is a hard one but I think I’ll be staying away from this forum. The toxicity and hate is incomprehensible. I cannot believe that someone referred to me as Hitler. He posted a picture of Hitler with the Nazi salute and referred to me as Hitler. I can swallow an insult and I don’t care for anything else people say about me, but Hitler?
Even my friends read it and were so disgusted.

The fact that people liked that comment, makes it even more troubling. You guys have gone too far with the hate. What did I do to deserve so much hate? I only came here to share my experience of life in Germany and I always acknowledged everyone that contributed to the thread. I am not gaining anything from this. I have a peaceful life and I don’t have to deal with this.

If people understand what it means to refer to a living person as Hitler. As a black man who lives in Germany and still suffers the impact of Hitler’s legacy, this is beyond disgusting. It is a serious crime and one of the most gruesome things you can reduce someone to. Read up on Hitler’s legacy and imagine how someone would show up here and refer to me as Hitler with a Nazi salute?

I was away on vacation and came back with joy, only to log into this forum again and experience such hate. I cannot ignore this. I refuse to get used to the toxicity. I cannot change it but I can choose not to be part of it. I will stay away from this forum from today. I will only come here when I have pictures to post, then I post the pictures and log out until the year ends.

I think it's best you stay away. You have done more than enough and don't deserve the hate here.


Travel / Re: Being Black In Berlin/germany by janettee(f): 9:39am On Aug 25, 2020

It is impossible to talk about family values as if Germany is one single unified entity. The truth is, it greatly differs from region to region. Germany is not a totally unified entity, you have to know the history of the land to understand how and why there are great cultural discrepancies across areas.

What DanielHouston said is therefore correct to the extent that it applies to some regions. What you are saying is also correct to an extent.

But if Germany is to be considered as a whole, I would be inclined to rather agree with you. Compared to most Central and western Europeans countries, Germans are conservative and family oriented.

But I wonder why such a discussion would even take place here. It is of no use to an average Nigerian trying to immigrate.

I think it's important so you can plan where you will live once you go intopension. Some Nigerians choose to go back home with all their savings instead of living in old people's homes.

This is a falsehood. Children not visiting their parents is an exception not the rule. The average German is very conservative when it comes to family values and has very close family ties. I wonder how people come to the conclusion that Germans are not close to their parents and neglect them. How many such families have you known?

Go to any old people's home and ask them when was the last time their children or grandchildren visited them, It has been proven by studies that old people are generally lonely, especially the ones in old people's home. I mean the reason they go there in the first place is that nobody is able to take care of them.

I appreciate the fact you guys seek info and knowledge but you all seemed to be obessessed with that danielhouston.

On another hand he did a wonderful job but on the other hand what he is doing is encouraging Nigerians and future who could have made a positive change for their motherland leave the country.

You spoke about his command of English i have uncles who went to the US in the 1970s but can still speak Ibo till now.

My sis that has stayed there over 10years speaks Ibo and English fluently so whats the hype he can write English well.

He said there is no black Doc in Germany,my uncle who also left Naija in the 70s,married whites twice is a renowned Surgeon in Germany so know he doesnt know all and he should accept that.

Hope you see the angle am coming from,have in mind his thread was educative and entertaining but everyone is entitled to his or her opinion rightly or wrongly.


I think when he said there are no black Docs in Germany, he meant that if you walk into a hospital, there's a high chance that you will be attended by a non-black Doc which is true in most cases and your Uncle is an exception but the majority or almost all doctors here are non-black.

I don’t use extensions. I just dread my natural hair and leave it to grow. You can go to work with dreads or braids or whatever hairstyle, nobody cares. Anybody who talks about your hair is discriminating against you. Except it is written in your contract. IT professionals even wear slippers to work. You can have red hair like chicken and earring falling from your tongue, nobody cares. As long as you can do your work.

In Germany you have to be careful with body language when communicating with people. That style of handshake or hand movement that is a form of greeting in your home country, can be considered a symbol of hate in Germany.

An example is raising your right hand in the air to greet someone. If you do that, the police will surround you and arrest you on charges of hate. That is a sign of Hitler. Some people don’t know this. They don’t play with anything associated with Hitler. Any handshake, body movement, symbols that was used by Nazis, is totally forbidden and can get you arrested.

You know how some Nigerian guys would raise their right hand up to greet their friends and say “my chairman, I salute you, boss, twale”.... if you try that in Germany you can be arrested for imitating Hitler. Same goes for those personalized handshakes you see as normal. They won’t care if you’re black or white, you will be arrested and charged.

So yeah, it is very important that you educate yourself about this. You can google about the hand movements and handshakes that were used by the Nazis, so you understand what I’m talking about.

Right wing supporters do this all the time in their protests and concerts and don't get arrested.

Yea, I've seen this too during their protest in Mannheim.

It is very common that people have pets in Germany. Some have dogs, some have cats. In Nigeria, I grew up thinking cats are witches and evil. I didn’t imagine anybody would keep a cat in their house as a pet. I was also afraid of dogs. The dogs I saw in Nigeria were stray dogs or dogs that bite. You know the dogs they use for security.

So I arrived Germany and one of my flatmates had a cat. I did not notice this cat, you know how sneaky cats can be. I came out of the bathroom one day and the cat was standing outside the door. I started shouting and ran back inside.
Everybody jumped out of their rooms to see what happened. I told them I saw a cat and they were looking at me as if I was crazy.

I later learned that cats are pets. Some people actually have 3 cats and you can play with them. They treat those cats like their biological children and care for them. It took me time to touch any cat but now I’m used to it. I even help my friend feed her cat when she’s away. But I still don’t like cats.

grin grin grin

Cats are cool to have as pets, prefer them to dogs.

My calculations for a billion stream is approximately $4m.

Might be. I'm just saying with a billion streams one might expect more than 4m$ for example, but it's really not that much. And artists make more money from touring than from streaming alone.

Artists earn only few cents per stream.
