germanGERMAN EDUCATION IS AS GOOD AS THEIR FOOTBALL– CONGRATULATIONS GERMANY ON A WELL DESERVED 2014 WORLD CUP GLORY!

StudyAbroad365.com has put together a list of 25 universities in Germany that are tuition free for international students seeking to study in Germany. However, be informed that while studying in Germany, you’ll be required to finance your feeding and accommodation expenses. International students should budget roughly 500 Euros for their books, healthcare, food and registration. So in one year, an international student should expect to spend 7000 Euros on feeding, accommodation and books expenses.

HOW TO OBTAIN A VISA

To obtain a German visa, you’ll have to show concrete finance proof of your ability to finance your accommodation and feeding expenses during your time of study. This can be done in either of two ways:

(1)    Submit a letter of finances to the German consulate or embassy. You can obtain this sponsor letter from your parents or a German relative who is willing to sponsor your studies in Germany.

(2)    Open a German blocked account and deposit roughly 7000 euro. This can only happen once you’ve received your letter of admission. This blocked account is opened in the German embassy.

Required Documents:

  • A Completed visa application form
  • Valid international Passport
  • 2 photographs
  • Admission Letter
  • Transcript of academic records
  • Proof that you have sufficient amount to support yourself while living and studying in Germany
  • Declaration of authenticity of documents submitted

Note that you will also be required to have photocopies of all these documents, get proper insurance and pay an application fee of 60 Euros for the visa.

Where and how to apply for a student visa?

You would be required to apply at your home country’s German Embassy. Except in rare circumstances you would have someone else submit a visa application along with the required documents for you. It is highly recommended that applicants apply for a student visa well in advance before your departure because the application of student visas can take up to 25 processing days.

Paying your visa fee

International applicants would have to pay the visa fees by a bank transfer. Student visa as of 2008 was 60 Euro and might increase slightly over the past few years. Note that Cheques or credit cards are not accepted. The money order must be in the name of the Consulate in your home country and not older than two months.

Please be aware that you will not get reimburse the visa fee if your application for a student visa gets rejected.

For more information, visit a German consulate in your home country or check out their websites for further details.
