It is through their advise and guidance that i managed to get a place at Muenster university for my Masters Degree. They are the best support team for any international student wishing to study in Germany.

16806642_764997850333428_3707967200796266390_nSteven Muyimbwa, GAI Beneficiary from 25 years ago I want to convey my sincere and genuine gratitude to The German Academi Institute (GAI) and more specifically to Mr Jim Godfrey Mpungu for having been a part of my career development. I remember the year was 1992 and i had just returned from the UK, having been there for 2 years and really not achieving what i needed to achieve in Education, i run into Mr Mpungu and we automatically reconnected. I had been with him a few years back but we had lost touch. So when i ran into him again i wanted to make sure that i do not loose touch again, especially since i discovered that he was into helping students go for further study abroad, especially to the USA at the time. I shared with him my plight and straight away he suggested that i plan to go to the USA. He agreed to help me get into school and follow up with all the documentation needed. I did not realise how fast he was planning to do all that he said he was going to, but within three months from when i ran into him on the street, i was on the plane headed for Houston, Texas to attend the Houston Community College. And that started a journey for me that has led me to places that are too many to mention here. That same year he relocated to Germany but made sure that i was taken care of in the US. I finished my studies in 1996 and came back home. The following year i contacted German Academi Institute again and they invited me to Germany to look into going for further studies there. I went and visited for 5 weeks, in fact My Mpungu took me to the University of Heidelberg and got me into school there. However, there were some pressing issues back home so i had to leave. In 2000 i went back to Germany but this time as a tourist and to visit some friends. Of course My Mpungu and the German Academic Institute facilitate a lot to do with this trip including contacts in Cities like Bonn and Dusseldolf for business. for about a month. So i can unequivocally say that i have been a beneficiary in all aspects – Student, Tourist and Business.

At the moment it is with such pride and honour that i say i was approached by the same German Academic Institute to be one of their representatives/ advisors not only here in Uganda, but also in the greater Sub-Saharan region. I have had tremendous opportunities to travel and meet people, but more so i have crossed paths with many aspiring students that want to go abroad for studies. We have since placed students in Germany, the UK, and the USA. I am so glad i am a part of The German Academi Institute (GAI)

Victoria Kisakye, Kampala UgandaI am a Ugandan female who has hopes of pursuing a master’s degree in International Management and I am thankful that I met Mr Jimmy G. Mpungu who works with German Academic Institute (GAI) during his stay in Uganda in August 2015. We have been in communication since then and he has helped me through my search for the appropriate course and university.

I have seen a commitment in him while trying to help me, through his timely responses to my inquiries, the guidance and professionalism, am grateful for the support. I hope to start my Masters application at the University of Cologne soon. Once again am grateful not only to him but to the entire German Academic Institute (GAI) team for opportunities given to students who wish to further their studies.

Julia Karanj, Nairobi Kenya (EA)Service: The GAI Partial scholarship support

Re: The German Academic Institute, Heidelberg Germany

As mentioned above am a beneficiary of the GAI. I came to know about the Institute sometimes last year but one , where after wards i decided to apply for one of their services which is the Partial scholarship. I can confess that GAI has been of great importance to me since my application as I have witnessed them guide me appropriately . I half their support with various other bodies that otherwise could have left me devastated which includes The German embassy in my country Kenya where they really intervened to ensure I got the Visa, a German body the (ASK) which issues certificates of admission to German Universities for foreign students where my certificate didi not get to me in time but the GAI staff ensured I got it and continued with the process.

I am waiting for admission to heilbronn University which again has been with the help of the institute in getting me the right instite for my education .The list of their intervention is long but am particularly gratefulm to one Jim Godfrey who’s been very efficient with his work as he always had an answer for all my questions without delay and proved alot of support. Recently, partial scholarship was  a warded in the sum of 2,500,00 EUR by F+U International for my Master’s program. For me I know without doubt that GAI is true to their word and am lucky I have them.

Elizabeth Birungi Heidelberg Germany. I am a student in Germany who benefited in Germany Academic Institute (GAI). GAI worked hard to secure a scholarship for me at F+U Academy not only that it worked hard to process my paper work in order for me to get a Visa to Germany which was not easy but GAI worked together with the Germany Embassy in Uganda and helped me to provide all the requirements needed at the Embassy until my Visa was granted.

GAI also helps to extend my Visa when it time for its extension whereby it works with the immigration office for the extension of the Visas.

I also thank Mr Sauer the director of F+U academies and Mr Rippel the head of F+U language academy Heidelberg branch for working with Mr Jimmy Godfrey Mpungu Godfrey to offer me a scholarship for the language school and all the great discounts on boarding. I sincerely appreciate all.
