1 month

1. Submit your application through the website.

Collect Documents

Collect Documents And Complete A1 and A2

4 months

1. Collect and send us a COMPLETE set of documents before you start your A2 German course.
2. Complete your A1 course with a 70% passing grade. Send us an email once you do!
3. Pay 50% of the translation fee before you start your A2 course.
4. After you have accomplished all these steps we will cover your A2 course costs.

Match with employer

Match With Employer

2 months

Once you have finished your A2 level we will start matching you with an employer of your choice: a hospital, a rehabilitation clinic or an elderly care facility. You will have to sit in one or a few interviews with potential employers to get to know each other. We will provide you with interview preparation tips. If everything goes well, you should have a job offer before you start your B2 language course.

Qualification recognition

Qualification Recognition

2-9 months

Once you receive a job offer, we will file your documents to obtain qualification recognition so that you could officially work as a nurse in Germany. This is a lengthy process that varies a lot regionally, both in terms of requirements and timelines. If you get a partial qualification recognition, you will either need to do an internship with your employer (if it's a university hospital) or we will organize a QR preparation course for you in Manila followed by a qualification exam in Germany (for all other employers).

Prep and Pass B2 Exam

Prep and Pass B2 Exam

3-4 months

This step is usually being done along the qualification recognition. While we do the paperwork, you study hard! In the end you'll have to take one of the three exams that are recognized in Germany: Goethe, TELC or ÖSD. You can choose whichever exam you would like — we would cover the costs for your first attempt. The number of attempts is not limited, but we would strongly recommend to try to pass it as soon as possible so that your employer doesn't wait for you too long.

Get your visa and fly to Germany

Get Visa And Fly To Germany

2 months

Once you get a visa stamp, we will buy you a plane ticket, organize the departure briefing and wave you goodbye!
