Financing your studies

What does it cost to study and how do I finance it?

Here you will find tips and support in finding the right student finance. Studying requires money ‒ not only for rent and living expenses, but also for the occasional visit to a café, the gym or the journey home to the family. In addition to BAföG, a student job or a scholarship, there are other ways to finance your studies.

We will help you find the right financing for your desired studies. Make an appointment for a personal consultation with us. International students please contact the Welcome Center directly.
