As Per New Regulations in Germany

Students from non-EU or non-EEA nations are required to have €11.417 in their blocked accounts, or €934 each month for a year. 

However, since January of this year, this sum has grown by 8.5 per cent, since the previous year’s deposit requirement was €10,332.

Furthermore, the Federal Foreign Office stated, an amount of €11,208 is to be paid into the block account while applying.

Moreover, the account holders cannot access the money until they get to Germany and are therefore referred to as frozen accounts. Obtaining study visas is one of the primary prerequisites for overseas students.
