One of the decisive reasons for or against studying is the question of financing. BAföG is still the cheapest and most reliable form of students financing (except for 100% financing by the parents).
But some things change during your studies, and suddenly you can get into financial distress very quickly. This is where the Studentenwerk comes into play, which is not only responsible for BAföG, but also grants loans and advise on other forms of financing.
Many students do not even know that we also offer jobs and internships or - to a modest extent - arrange them. This can also help in the preparation of the comprehensive study financing package.
In short: In addition to BAföG, these pages offer a lot more tips and assistance. It is worthwhile to think a little further.
