Education Support (BAföG)

Students who lack the means to meet their own living costs and education costs have a right to individual student support according to the German federal law for support of education, the BAföG (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz).

BAföG is basically meant for German citizens, but foreign students may be awarded BAföG support if they meet certain criteria (e.g. accepted asylum seekers, foreigners with permanent residency in Germany).

Applications can be made to the BAföG-Amt (see to the right).

The § 9-certificate which you will need to produce at the BAföG office to prove your enrollment or re-registration at the University will arrive together with the registration documents which we will send after payment of the semester contribution.
