Hi, I am Ashwin. I have recently received a university admission letter from German University. The University I have selected demanded to open a Blocked account, but I have read that a blocked account is not mandatory. Is opening a blocked account necessary?
No, the blocked account is not mandatory. Some universities make it compulsory for international students to open blocked accounts to avoid any trouble during their studies. But some universities accept other means of your finances such as grants, scholarships, and a document of your parent's income and financial status. The only purpose of starting a blocked account is to secure your domestic expenses with your funds.
