The examination of your application documents usually takes one week, in exceptional cases even more.
If your application looks promising to us, we will invite you to a selection and financing interview. The interview will take place either at your university or in our office in Berlin and you can choose the date that suits you best. If you cannot come to Germany for your interview, we can also conduct it online.
The purpose of the interview is to get to know you as a person and to understand your motivation. The following characteristics are particularly important to us:
You have the necessary qualifications to successfully complete your studies or training and to work in the professional field you are aiming for.
You have thoroughly informed yourself about your intended studies or training and are passionate about the profession you want to pursue.
You fit in with our cooperative and our values.
Within one week of your interview, we can let you know if we can support your studies/training.
If we decide we are willing to finance your education, it is up to you to decide whether the ISA is the right financing model for you. If you choose the ISA, we will prepare your personal contract.
If you decide to finance your studies through an ISA, we will prepare your personal contract and your membership application form and send it to you by post. If you reside outside of Germany, we can also sign a preliminary contract via pdf.
This step can take up to 2 weeks.
We are looking forward to your application. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Nathalie:
