The individual standard period of study will also be extended for the summer semester 2021!
For students enrolled in the summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/2021 or summer semester 2021, an individual standard period of study that deviates from the standard period of study will be extended by one semester for each of these semesters; in order to cushion hardships caused by the Corona pandemic.
The individual standard period of study essentially affects the period of entitlement to BAföG. For first-semester students (summer semester 2021), this means that the submission of the certificate of achievement according to § 48 BAföG will be postponed by one semester and the maximum funding period will increase by one semester.
For students who were enrolled in the summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021, the submission of the transcript of records is now also postponed by a further semester, i.e. by a total of three semesters. The same applies to the maximum funding period.
Here you will find the temporary financial changes and assistance during the special pandemic period.
If your parents do not have the means to support you financially, BAföG is the best way to study while enjoying financial security. Half of the BAföG financial support is usually a grant, the remaining half an interest-free loan. Simply submit an application and we will assess your eligibility.
There are numerous scholarships for very different target groups, which aren’t just related to aptitude.
You won’t miss the money that you don't spend in the first place. Discounts, special offers and alternatives all help make your money go further.
