FAQs: Study in Germany

If you want to get the list of Unis offering Electrical engineering in English you can checkout the this link. I will recommend just to apply for as many Universities as possible and you’ll definitely find yourself an admission offer. I had a friend who got admission in TU Darmstadt with 2.1 CGPA. So  just trust in yourself and go for it.

The process for applying to every university in Germany is the same. You’ve to make a list of the universities. fulfill their requirements. send them the document by the medium they have asked you to send them. And wait for them to reach back to you with an admission letter or a rejection letter. If you get the admission you have to apply for a bank account and send money into it around 8600 Euros (i am not sure about the exact number). Once all of this is done. You can apply for a visa and leave for Germany.

In order to understand how each and every step works.

You can take a look at the daad.de scholarships. They have quite a lot there. You can also search for universities that do not charge for tution fee.  You can find small jobs in Germany to be able to financially support yourself. 

There are multiple options when it comes to financial assistance in Germany. You can read about them from the following link.

Some of the scholarships might have special conditions which might not apply to you. So it is better to just read the conditions. Also check some of the scholarships are old and if they are still applicable.

Deadline totally depends on the program you want to study. You can look at the below link and search the program you want to get enroll

Moreover, 

there are different deadlines for different scholarships. You can see that daad lists multiple scholarships.

Now each scholarship has its own deadline. If you want to know the deadline of each scholarship just simply go to the scholarship page and select the application procedure header.

RE: Can u tell me when will daad scholarship 2019 admission start?

Below are some of the links for the scholarship offered in Europe.

  1.  European Disability Scholarships
  2.  Daad Scholarships
  3. ALECOSTA: Alemania-Costa-Rica Scholarship
  4. Erasmus Scholarship
  5. Common Wealth Scholarships

Moreover, you can also follow these steps:

  1. First of all make a list of all the German Universities that gives you the opportunity to do the masters in computer science. 
  2. Once you know which Universities are the ones you want to apply for just start the application process for these Universities. Every University has it’s application process written on their website. For e.g the application process for University of Freiburg can be seen here on their website.
  3. Than just wait for them to process your application. Either they will write you a rejection email or an acceptance email.
  4. Once you get an acceptance from a University. Now comes the step to open a blocked account in Germany. There are multiple ways to open a blocked account.  You can also open a blocked account in Deutsche bank for comparison between fintiba and deutsche bank. The process of opening Blocked Bank Account from start till end is here. Follow these steps.

    Fintiba is just an online bank where you can put your blocked amount in. But to be able to take that money out for use there are no ATMs in Germany, hence you need an account in one of the local German banks ( deutsche bank, sparkasse whatever ).

    Once you open a local German bank account you’ll just connect it to fintiba such that fintiba will put the blocked amount every month into your local bank account which you can use in Germany.

      • So the first step is to just go online on fintiba website and create a bank account there. You can transfer the money and do everything quickly.

     

      • Once you’ve opened an account, you go through your visa process.

     

      • After you arrive in Germany you’ll simply go to the Deutsche Bank and they will open an account for you and give you an IBAN.

     

      • Once you’ve this IBAN you can simply add this IBAN to the fintiba website and than you’re good to go.

     

    These are just the general steps you go through if you want to open a fintiba account and live in Germany and remember when monthly fintiba will send money to your local German bank account they’ll charge you a small fee like 5 euros for example.

  5. Once you’ve opened a blocked account you’ll go to the German consulate/embassy with your blocked account document (that they will give you after opening it successfully) and your admission letter and other educational documents.
  6. They’ll give you a visa to fly to Germany

Hope this is helpful.

Most of the universities in Germany are free and have no fees but you have to pay for your living expense that is 500 – 700 euro per month depending on your city and personal requirements. If you already got the admission then you can directly ask them about the scholarship. Most of the universities give you a scholarship if you have good grades and since your CGPA is very good I think you apply for it.

Please take a look at the following link. I’ve updated the filters on the left side of the page to include all the universities without fee. Feel free to update them according to your needs.
