Language and Financial Requirement for Visa

The language of instruction is English. The minimum score required for direct entry into a Bachelor or Master programme is IELTS 6.0, TOEFL 80, PTE 56, Cambridge advanced or equivalent (check HERE for the accepted language certificates). If you are attending the Pathway Programme, an IELTS score of 5.0 is generally sufficient.

Proof of German language skills is normally not required. However, knowing even a bit of German will not only make your daily life in Germany easier but will also increase your career prospects. It is also an important sign of your commitment to study in Germany and may help you in the visa process.

 

How much money do I have to show to get the Visa? How do I open a Blocked Account?

Proof of financial resources is an important condition to get your student visa and your study residence permit.

Under current law regulations in Germany, if you are an international student coming from a non-EU or non-EEA country, then you must prove you have the financial resources (Finanzierungsnachweis) to cover your living expenses in Germany. It is estimated that a normal foreign student in Germany spends around €720 euros per month at a minimum or €8,640 per year. This value sets the minimum amount of money required to be deposited in the blocked account so you can prove your financial means (Finanzierungsnachweis) to get a student visa.

The blocked account is a special type of bank account in Germany created for international students, so they can prove they have the financial resources to live in Germany for one year.

We strongly recommend opening your Blocked Account through our partner Fintiba (www.fintiba.com). Fintiba is officially approved by the German Federal Foreign Office. The whole account opening process is done online – you do not have to print or sign any forms. As the account opening is processed fully online, it will normally only take 2-4 working days to open the blocked account.

You can find detailed instructions and FAQs HERE.

Students programmes: You need to provide proof that you have the financial resources to cover both living costs and tuition fees. If your programme is longer than a year, you may also be asked how you plan to finance your studies and living expenses during the consecutive year.

 

How do I prove my sincere wish to study in Germany?

To prove that you are committed, you need to show a real interest and knowledge about the country, university, and programme. Moreover, your grades must demonstrate your ability to study.

This is the rule for students studying abroad…

Yes, you can work but about 90% of countries don’t give student work permits… However, students can work informally and part-time… But all governments and university do not expect students to depend on their possible employment to pay for their tuition and accommodation…

In fact, it not ever possible for students to study full-time each semester and work as well and yet be able to earn enough for their tuition fees and accommodation… Not possible…

They might be able to depend on their possible work for living expense but never for tuition and accommodation…

They can’t study and still earn enough for those kinds of stuff (unless they have their own businesses).
