Hi Ammar,

I will answer each question separately.

i want to ask Is Germany really worth investing?

If you are ready to work hard in your life in order to have a better career. than “YES, IT IS WORTH INVESTING”.

Otherwise, if you’re looking for a shortcut to survive than “NO”.

Can we cover our living expenses with part time odd jobs (not computer jobs)?

Odd jobs are just a way to help you earn a little bit money in order to bare your living expenses and it is enough for you to live a decent life without needing any financial assistance from your family back home. So YES, odd jobs are enough until you are a student but you won’t be able to spend like a king, so you would have to manage your expenses.

This is in case you are studying in a fees free University.

How tough is to manage study along with a part time job ?

It is tough but once you are into it. You’ll be working hard and enjoying it without even realizing it. But you should apply with the mindset that I am going to Germany for a better future for which I am ready to work hard.

Seniors what will you suggest to an it professional whose coding is not good? and he is from average family. Investing 20 lac is a wise desicion?

Sorry but I’ll be a bit blunt about this part.

With what I understand, your coding knowledge is not good enough due to your lack of focus and hard work in your field of study which is a bad sign and won’t take you a long way in life. Things won’t work out well in Germany if you continue to follow the same route.

Which brings me to my answer, there are a lot of IT jobs in Germany and you are lucky to have a background in this field. So it is only worth investing this much money(anywhere in life) if you are ready to work hard after going there, with the mindset to enhance your coding skills and knowledge and look for better opportunities. Otherwise don’t bother.

Hi Muneeb.

 

Yes it is 100 percent right that one had to work hard. and i am ready for that. (I had already work hard here in Pak)

 

The reason i am not good in coding is i am working as freelancer in a different field (digital marketing).

I did networking courses but the jobs ration was not good here so i opted digital marketing.

Digital marketing doesnot require any further study but i am worried about future scenario and also a wish to study/settle abroad.

 

I can enhance my coding skills of front end development.

All i was worried about financing my living expenses after 2,3 mnths arriving in germany through part time job.

(so i can save the amount which i sent as a block amount)

thats great !!! than you should definitely go for it.

on January 7, 2019.

you will be able to manage dont worry. apply for universities without fee. There must be digital marketing gigs also in Germany so you can apply for jobs in companies there too which pay much better than odd jobs

Yeah but isnt the jobs for digital marketing will be in german?

I hardly saw and english speaking digital marketing job.

One can find job in 2-3 mnths after arrival?

I can/will also do freelancing  while studying but having on ground (khajal khawari) makes a man hard worker 😛

What will be the best time to apply winter intake or summer?

Thanks! You gave a hope with your advice.

Mostly in German, YES but not all of it. There are a lot of international firms. You’ll know better once you are in the market. If you are learning to code on your own. That’s good, maybe find a coding job. Definitely working for companies will pay you more hourly rate.

Yes you can find a job after 2-3 months. Once you are in Germsny build a CV in europass and start applying like crazy!. More on this in the following link.

Apply for winter or summer doesn’t make a difference.

Hi Ammar,

I will completely agree with muneeb’s answers. It is worth investing your money in Germany if you are seriously looking to enhance your skills and look for better opportunities.

Everyone is able to manage their financials with odd jobs so dont worry. There are also hiwi jobs which are provided by professors, these jobs pay a bit more than the odd jobs. Also than there are jobs in companies which pay even more.

But you will be able to manage your financials for yourself only if you are doing odd jobs. You wont be able to send money back to your family if you are planning to do that.

I am from an average family too and it was worth the investment for me. It only depends on how you do things there. It will definitely not be a walk in the park but we have to work hard to get somewhere and I don’t know of anyone who got afraid of that and went back home. So when everyone can do it. You will be able to do it too.

Thanks Muneeb and Muazzam bhai for your comprehensive answers.

 

 

Which source is best to learn German language through some app/utube or from online institute classes?

Should i start  learning it?

If you are sure about going to Germany I will recommend you to start learning German from now. Because most Universities might ask you to have a German B1 level and if you already have that, you will have even more options to apply at different Universities. And if you apply for a visa also, it will leave a good impression to the embassy guys that you are serious about studying there and also their culture. In addition,if you are planning to stay there after finishing your studies. You can apply for a PR in 21 months after recieving your blue card ( you get this when you finish your stufies and start working full time ). This PR can only be recieved in 21 months if you are German B1 level, otherwise it will take you 33 months.

Hence there are several advantages in the long run if you learn German now.

You can learn German in one of the institutes in your city, this might be a bit expensive but i will highly recommend it.

Goethe Institute offer really good German courses. Apart from this, you can use the app Duolingo to fix your German and Quizlet to make flash cards for vocabulary.

I am not aware of any German courses that I will recommend since I have not tried any myself. But there are a lot of videos online so just try them out.

Look at this question for further info.

My plans are now final for Germany.

I was looking at online tutors. they are teaching via skype (German Academy Pakistan).

Should i opt this method or should i prefer class room method through goethe partner institute here in Lahore.

 

Online class benefit is it is time saving.

 

Will i able to save money from 9000 euros if i get a job.

I will recommend you to go for class room studies instead of online because of the environment and making new friends who might inform you about more things about Germany. Your learning will be more productive, try speaking German with them doesnt matter if its broken German.

Jobs will definitely slow down the drain of cash flow. If you want your 9000 to be untouched, you would have to be very careful about your spendings. For e.g, you should not travel around in Europe, make food at home and dont go out with friends and save from every place you can. I wont recommend living a life like that.

But this doesn’t mean you will eventually run out of cash and will have to ask for more money from your family. This is not gonna happen unless you are too careless about your spendings. So its all about maintaining a balance in your cash income from jobs and your cash outflow. The more you balance it the more you save from those 9000. Initially for at least 2 to 3 months you won’t find a job and you will be living on that unblocked 750 per month( correct me if I’m wrong ).

Enjoy your time, spend your money carefully on yourself. This will play a role in your mindset towards your studies also, you need to freshen up your mind time and again.
