Funding according to BAföG


Bafög ©Detlev Müller

We are glad that you have landed here in search of information about your studies, because the "Expedition Studies" also requires that you deal with your "equipment" in a timely and comprehensive manner. After all, the dreams of professional planning should not crumble at the cost of daily life.

According to the BAföG, anyone who fulfills the personal requirements specified in this Act has a legal entitlement to financial aid for studying that is commensurate with their inclination, suitability and performance. The amount of this fanancial support is determined individually. The funding provisions and the related applications are quite extensive.

Nevertheless, you should not be put off by the fact that half of the regular support is a grant and a non-interest-bearing loan. The maximum repayable loan amount for a training period is also limited to € 10,000.

The legislator has therefore created opportunities that will not bury even those whose intelligence and skills to which the resources required for a study are not themselves or through your parents available. In addition to the parents' support, this support is currently the most favorable option for most students to put their education on a financial foundation.

You can fill in and print out the forms at any time using the link "BAföG Online Form".
