How can I finance my studies?

  • BAföG (state assistance for students)

    Financing with the Federal Education Assistance Act (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz, BAföG)

    State funding for students is called BAföG. The goal of BAföG is to enable young people from lower-income families an optimal education, that is, to increase equal opportunities. This means that not everyone is entitled to BAföG. Whether you have a claim cannot be said generally because it depends on many factors.

    Get information about how much BAföG (state assistance for students) you can receive with an on-site advising session or using the BAföG calculator.
