The individual standard period of study will also be extended for the winter semester 2020/21!
For students enrolled in the summer semester 2020 or winter semester 2020/2021, the individual standard period of study will be extended by one semester for each of these semesters in order to cushion hardship caused by the Corona pandemic.
For first-semester students (WS 2020/21), this means that the submission of the proof of academic achievement according to § 48 BAföG is postponed by one semester and the maximum funding period is increased by one semester.
For students who were enrolled in the summer semester 2020 and the winter semester 2020/21, the submission of the proof of academic achievement is now also postponed by another semester, i.e. by a total of two 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.
