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