Financing your studies

How much will studying at Saarland University cost me and how can I finance it?

The world of student financing can sometimes feel confusing. We've put together some top tips and advice to help you understand the options available to you. Studying at university means having a regular income to cover your expenses. You'll need money not just to pay for accommodation and living expenses, but also for the occasional visit to a café, the gym or for a trip back home to see the family. In addition to the BAföG federal student loan scheme, taking on a part-time student job or receiving a scholarship, there are other ways to finance your studies.

We'll help you find the option that's right for you. Make an appointment with us for an individual consultation session. International students please contact the Welcome Center directly.
