Travel transcript.

Obtaining a first class degree in biochemistry and graduating as one of the best in the class of 2017 Chukwemeka Odumegwu motivated me towards searching for a greener pasture abroad.

At first I thought it was all about having a good result, but experiences have made me realize that, although good results can give u an edge towards achieving your goal, they are not close to being the ultimate requirement.

I did my first application in 2018, to Australian universities using a study agent, was able to get two admission with both 50percent scholarship.

I lost interest in them cos the remaining 50 percent I was to pay was above 8 million naira.

Fast forward to 2019, I did several applications to US universities, got 3 admission letters with it one scholarship of about 75 percent but was denied visa twice on weekly interval.
Was depressed, local man wanted to give up.

On march, 2019 after US visa denial even on scholarship, I had to think about Germany.
My first application to Germany, was to three schools, I got only one admission that year for winter semester at Rhein Waal, received two rejection letters. I was happy cos one admission letter is enof to get me a visa.
I applied for visa, no interview date...
I was demoralised.
Early 2019 bleeped me up.

I started my admission/scholarship hunt with no preference to a particular country.

I applied to any country I see a notification of their scholarship on my mail with most of my applications going to UK and Germany.

I got a total of above 20 admission letters in UK with some of part scholarships attached, 7 admission letters in Germany ( got three admission letters for winter 2020 even when I applied for summer�) I received an offer in China, Saudi Arabia n Italy.

I had to go with my Germany cos of the free tuition.

I applied for an interview date for summer in August 16 2019, waited for 3 months, got my visa interview date on 31 December 2019.

I was meant to be interviewed on Feb 4 2020, I prepared wella,got to the German embassy dat day, they said they they don't have light, that all interview dat day re cancel and automatically fixed to the next day depending on an individual consent.
That was when I know dat village people dy ves�.

A whole German embassy Lagos doesn't have light, the first to have been witnesses for over 7yrs of their existence here.

I left, came bk the next day,on 5th ready on pouring my longed crammed practiced interview transcripts from others.� But luckily for her, my interview was not up to 5 mins.

I left with full conviction that visa is certain.

Fast forward to 3rd march, which coming bk from Frau Jennifer's Deutsch class, I got my Am.
Sent my doc n passport on 5th, got my visa on 11th march, all in my birth month�, but my visum stamp came with 18th march as the date it started.
Meaning that I cannot come to Germany unless it is 18th of march.

I booked my flight to travel by 18th march, came to Lagos on 16 to fly on 18, Germany lucked up on 17th marc.

Ever since den, I have been stucked in Lagos and watching my hard earned visa expire in my presence while I do nothing.
I waited for 3 months and 18 days until on Monday dis week when I have decided to take a bold step.

I have seen many people give reasons why you I can't enter Germany now because of the pandemic and some said Nigerians are not allowed to come in forgetting that students are expemted.

I was looking for that one person to give me reasons why I should look for a way n get out of this country but couldn't.

I got an information that Cotonou airport has been functional with out any form of lockdown ever since the conception of the lock down.

I looked for a way to confirm the info, and on validating it, I had to go to Cotonou by fire by force

I booked my ticket, to travel on 8tg, being yesterday.
Just arrived here today, and I was not convinced yet until I had to enter the wrong train to my house n spend another money...�

I have been a silent observer of this group n read everything going on here, but I find it difficult to talk cos much information are circulating dat we find it difficult to know the right one..

Wen I was checked in today in Frankfurt by immigration, I had to come back to the officer to ask him if it is only the stamp dat I require cos I was afraid to a point that students are not allowed to come in, but it is a lie.

As a student, if u can get a good letter from your school indicating that your presence is needed, u re good to go, or an enrollment letter can do.

PS. This transcript was not originally addressed to nairalanders
I am not stepping on anyone's toes, I apologize if I used the wrong choice of word, typographical errors,made the write up lengthy or took much of ur time, I just felt that some one might need it....

If you have any questions on my little epistle, feel free to ask, if not, I will take my leave after tonight for others in the waiting room to be added...
Thanks to u all...

Note:. 99.9% of the passengers I saw in Cotonou yesterday are Nigerians

I wrote this transcript since last week...
I forgot to post it here where I started...

forget about GTB and Zenith use Access bank is the best bank to fund BA or Some people have good experience with First bank as well, Go to your bank with an aboki who have dollars or euro in his account and transfer to your domicillary account then fund your BA in the bank.

Thank you so much.
Am grateful.
Please how do I go about it?

Kindly explain the steps.
Thank you...

Good day all.
Please what is the easiest way to fund BA.
Wished to fund using Domiciliary account but the bank (Zenith/Gtb) said that the maximum amount to pay into my domiciliary account is 1000€ weekly and I don't have much time on me.

All the Bureau the Chargers I went to said that they don't have euro in their account to transfer to mine and it is an issue to me.

Please I will appreciate it if a solution is provided soon.

Hello everyone, I’m a summer applicant due to no AD from the embassy for this past winter, I already have AD for summer now, for Nov 15. I have a bsc in engineering but I’m planning to study international business for masters. My question is that, I hope there won’t be an issue with getting a visa because I don’t have a business background?

Also, small advice for summer applicants, try to search very well and apply to schools with online admission application instead of focusing solely on schools that need uni-assist, so that you can get admission much faster. You should still apply to the schools that need uni-assist too tho, but the earlier you have an admission the earlier you can book for interview.
. Pl brotherly what are the name of the schools you applied for summer semester

Someone should please answer me.

Good morning bro, if I understood ur question pretty well, u applied for cat B while u going for masters....
There are requirements and criteria to be met for several categories.
I think that since u going for MSC and u obtained 2.2 and above in your degree, the right category for u I A and not B.

Secondly I will advise you do the needful if you ve applied to the wrong category.

This is about Jena, thuringia. From Pauluche

Jena is NOT exactly the way people painted it. It is a city not some suburb. There are student jobs in Jena, Erfurt, Nora, Weimar to mention a few. All you require is good command of the German language. Without German knowledge, the probalilty of you getting a job in Jena is slim you may have to go out to the other cities which I mentioned earlier.

Having a student job here is more profitable than having it in the big cities. Why? On the average a prudent student will not spend more than 380-420 euros per month. House rent 180, insurance 83, feeding and other petty things make up the balance.

Now how many ''big cities'' can average that? I know of people who pay 450-550 euros per month on rent alone.

Even if you decide to not work, you can still save as much as 250 euros per month.

Finally most Nigerians and indeed Africans in Jena have jobs. We all know the nature of student jobs.

I know of a friend who borrowed 1.4million naira. He earns around 400-450 euros per month from his mini job. As I write this, he has been able to send 4600 Euros home in the space of seven months! How did he do it? He's been living on his earnings and hasn't touched the money in his block account for seven months!

Anyone who hasn't gotten a Job since they got here probably haven't put in enough effort in getting one or they have no knowledge of German.

I recently decided to prove to myself that there are jobs in this city by going out in search of a job. There was virtually no place I stopped by that they didn't consider giving me a mini job so what are we saying?

Conclusively, if you are to risk borrowing, ensure that: You are knowledgeable in German. You have a fair idea of the job condition in that city

The city you intend to live in is relatively inexpensive.

Bro u doing a very good job here.
Can u please tell us about kleeve in North Rhine Westphalia as regards to living n job

Good morning beautiful people.
I really appreciate the help I have been getting so far here. Thank you all

Am at the process of funding my BA, I learnt that the safest mode of doing that is through bank but it might be costlier. I also observed that a FORM A is need for the transfer in the bank.
My question is, how can one get the FORM A?.

Secondly, what are the possible documents needed while funding d account?

NB, I opened a finitiba account, and intend funding soon but i need possible information on how to do that to avoid mistakes....

Thank you
