Thank you for your prompt response! If i get an offer for a job or an Ausbildung contract, will I be able to stay there after completing my language course? Simply put, can I change my status of my visa during this period?

Dear Atif Mehmood,

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us again.

I was trying to make some research on this topic a while ago here. Unfortunately, I am not able yet to add any further information. 

However, I will link our dear @mbeon-ruth and @mbeon-Rukundo now as well. Maybe they can help us out!

All the best,

Hi @Atif Mehmood,

thank you for your question. I think this is an interesting topic for many job/Ausbildung-seekers. 

I don't know what Visa you applied for, but I recommend finding an Ausbildung and making a preparational language course, which is "included" in the residence purpose of §16a of the german residence act.

See here:

Section 16a
Vocational training; advanced vocational training


The residence purpose of quality in-company vocational training as referred to in sentence 1 also comprises German language courses preparing participants for vocational training, in particular job-related German language training in line with the Ordinance on German Language Training (Deutschsprachförderverordnung).

(...) source:

If you get this residence permit, you don't have to change anything after completing your language course.
