But be prepared to follow some procedures that ‘studying in Germany’ brings with itself, one of them being the blocked account in Germany. Since you are a citizen neither from an EU country now from any EEA country, you will be required to prove your financial health (or Finanzierungsnachweis) while you pursue higher education in Germany. And for that, you will need to open blocked account in Germany with a German bank and thereby deposit funds in it.  This proof of your financial health not only enables you to study in Germany but assist you in obtaining the student visa and residency permit.
