ISL Sprachschule - Guarantee letter
ISL Sprachschule Guarantee (Verpflichtungserklärung) – instead of the Blocked account
There is an alternative to having a blocked account to prove that a student can support themselves in Germany. An individual or company resident in Germany can issue a guarantee (Verpflichtungserklärung) for a student for the duration of their courses at ISL.
We offer this to a limited number of students, selected on an individual basis, every year.
ISL Sprachschule will consider issuing a student such a guarantee under the following conditions:
- The accommodation at ISL is paid 100% in advance (not just the first 2 months) for the entire length of the course at ISL.
- Students cannot leave the ISL accommodation early – or get a refund on this.
- A processing fee of EUR 100 is paid (which corresponds to the bank opening fee).
- Student still need to pay for their own normal costs of living (food etc. in Germany)
If a student provides such a gurantee (see example on this page), then he/she does not need a blocked account with EUR 10236.
Please be aware that if a student stops the course early or leaves for other reasons then this guarantee letter is then cancelled immediately and the student does not have a valid visa for Germany.
Please advise us if you wish to apply for this. We evaluate each case individually to see if we can do this for a student. Places are limited and we will not be able to give this to every student. The reasons for potentially rejecting a student for this cannot be shared with applicants.
Please note that even if you have a gurantee instead of a blocked account, you are still not allowed to work until you start at university.
