Bafög ©Detlev Müller

We are pleased that you have come here in search of information about your studies, because the " Expedition Studium " also requires you to deal with your " equipment " in time and comprehensively. After all, the dreams of your career planning should not crumble at the numerous costs of daily life.

According to the Federal Training Assistance Act (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz - BAföG), anyone who fulfils the personal requirements specified in this law is legally entitled to training assistance for a training course corresponding to their inclination, suitability and performance. The amount of this training support is determined individually.

The funding regulations and the associated applications are quite extensive. Nevertheless, you should not be deterred from taking this approach, as half of the regular funding is in the form of a grant and half in the form of 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 possibilities that also those do not need to bury their intelligence and abilities, to which the means necessary for a study are not available. In addition to the parental support, this support is currently the cheapest way for most students to put their education on a financial foundation.

You can fill out and print out the forms at any time via the link "BAföG-Online-Application".

Notice: The Studentenwerk Freiberg is co-financed by tax revenues on the basis of the budget approved by the members of the Saxon state parliament.
