Say wahr?? 104 omg! This is magnanimously numreounte! I know a guy who has deferred. Another has travelled. That makes 3 of us attending. Looks like the other 3 may have also deferred. I have forwarded my db alert to the consulate. They only replied my mail of yesterday in which I requested to send the swift copy to them. They said they have been mandated by law to issue visa only by DB alert. They have, however, not sent me AM mail despite receiving my funding mail.

Ja, out of 1431 applicants, about 130 were admitted and 104 accepted the admission. About 80 have enrolled and resumed, expecting 24 more to resume. All will work out just fine for you. Have a safe trip to Munich!

Faith is when you are yet to fund blocked acct, yet, go ahead to buy winter jackets and travelling box. This, I did yesterday, and, ecobank, out of the blues, debited me today. Rate was N420/EUR.

Congrats @Lobito,MSPE class TUM WS'16 earnestly await your arrival. You needed to see how the whole class was staring at me while introducing myself during orientation today. I was the only African present.

I pray Nigeria's economy gets better. Six Nigerians and One Burkinababe (7 Africans out of 104 admits) were admitted for the course. Unfortunately, I have only seen myself and much later, the Burkinababe entered the hall (glad Lobito is joining soon). Largely, this is due to the present forex crisis in Nigeria.

Nigeria shall rise again. Amen!!!

Pls if an A.M mail says ur departure date should be scheduled for at least 7days from a date, does it mean it should be scheduled for days after the 7th day? Thanks bro

Genau, just as posters above me have explained. Nonetheless, if you have enrollment deadline to beat, you can emphasize that in a short letter.
Travel / Re: General German Visa Enquiries Part 3 by Plismoll: 6:47am On Oct 09, 2016

Great one bro. Your fellow TUM admit is still stuck here in Naija o. No fx to fund blocked acct.

Hello bro, I understand the situation with forex and pray you get it done soon. If there is any way, I can be of help, please do not hesitate to ask.

See you in Munich soon!!!

I arrived in Munich two days ago and it has been a wonderful experience right from departure in Nigeria till date.

- No embarrassment of any kind so far

- Was the only black on-board while connecting Munich from Abu Dhabi. Most Africans I have seen (though few) smile when you meet and some natives have been so friendly.

- Cost of accommodation here is expensive (heard there are very few&cheap student dorms within the city but hardly available) and difficult to get but God dey.

-Transportation system is superb. My best so far is U-bahn.

- Time runs fast in Germany (my personal observation).

... and many more

In all, thanks to every member of this thread. I pray all prospective students will enjoy immense favour.

P.S: This is not my last post here. As much as I can, I will try to help others here. Danke schoen!

I'm sorry, Plismoll. I did answer your mails. Perhaps you should recheck your inbox. My money is still with First Bank. The lady in charge said she wanted to get through with the smaller bills before my €8000. I'll definately let you know when it gets done.

Thanks for your reply. Where exactly is the branch of First Bank you used? Not all their branches seems to know abt such transaction with Form A.

Hello house,

Pls, who have successfully deposited into blocked account with Form A through First Bank, recently? Marie96 and Sparkle01, reply my mails, biko.

It is urgent.

Travel / Re: General German Visa Enquiries Part 3 by Plismoll: 1:09pm On Jun 13, 2016

I opened an account and did my Form A at first bank on Thursday. Though it was for tuition.

I went with all needed documents ( Passport, Admission letter, School fees invoice, notification of result as my certificate isn't ready yet)
They helped me write the letter to debit and I only needed to sign and fill the Form A form. It was straightforward and I was told I would be debited this week. So I'm still waiting.
Thanks Mille.
Travel / Re: General German Visa Enquiries Part 3 by Plismoll: 5:08pm On Jun 12, 2016

I was at First Bank, Akure today and the lady in charge of Form A transfers seemed unsure if she could initiate the transfer as the Deutshe Bank account bears my name. Apparently, the transfer should be directly to a school account. I told her it's been done but I don't think she's handled many transactions like that. What First Bank branch did you use?

marie96, you've got mail. Pls, revert.
Travel / Re: General German Visa Enquiries Part 3 by Plismoll: 5:05pm On Jun 12, 2016
Amen... And you too. Thanks bro

Sparkle01, kindly PM me. I have been trying to do that over here but it's not working. I need info about FORM A at First Bank.

9ice one boss and tanks for sharing. Wish you all d best sir. See u n Deutsche land already. Just have a few questions 2 ask. The courier envelop on the new checklist,how do 1 go about it? and Secondly was their any need for motivational letter?

1. Got the envelope at DHL office @ #4,120.00 Told them I need prepared courier envelope for Visa processing from German embassy Lagos. They know about it and also have the embassy's address on their system.
Reason for the high cost is likely cos the delivery address is another state outside Lagos.

2. I did not write it during or before the interview but was prepared for it, in case.

Dear All

Please ensure that you take note of the updated checklist for student Visa... Everything is still the same at first glance.

However on further perusal, you would find that the email address to book visa appointment has changed from rk-visa105@lago.diplo.de to student@lago.diplo.de

I have attached the updated checklist for everyone to download


Dear all, Handwritten letter of motivation is also missing in the new checklist for Student Visa Application.


Travel / Re: General German Visa Enquiries Part 3 by Plismoll: 10:30am On May 27, 2016

Your visa and application document will be return to you via Dhl.You dont need to go to the embassy to pick the visa up anymore.

@weirdarkhitekt, Thank you! My paper docs got to TUM late Feb.

@Tesland, Lobito007 & Hadassaheke, thank you!

@Barleh, I did Skype interview (2nd stage) on 2nd of May. Got success mail few hours later. My application experience:

1st step: Online application (after thoroughly surfing the school's website).

2nd step: Sent all required paper docs (for admission) except Health insurance which was required for enrollment (I will send that later).

3rd Step: Got a notification that my docs have been received. Prayed and hoped for the best.

4th Step: Got an interview invitation but I rescheduled to an earlier date (rescheduling is allowed as stated in the invitation).

5th Step: 30mins interview. 3-man panel (one male lecturer, a woman and an observer). The interview questions covered my motivation for applying for MSC programme, why TUM, other schools in Germany that I applied to, my CV, my present job, funding, my undergraduate specialization/ courses and some technical questions on power plant, power generation, transmission and distribution. I was UNABLE to answer ALL questions correctly but gave technical ideas on those I don't know. Finally, I asked some general questions about life in Munich, the study and when to expect result of the interview. In a nut shell, it was God's grace.
N.B: On MSPE website, there is information about the general areas to focus on (motivation, technical questions, CV etc.) for the interview with their allotted grades.

6th Step: Got a success mail from the President of TUM (similar to Vice Chancellor in Nigeria), accepted the offer officially on TUMonline and downloaded the admission letter.

7th Step (loading...) : Visa application and Resumption, by God's grace.

Hope the summary helps. See you!
