Studying is almost like a full-time job. Time to work on the side is nearly impossible.
Those who want to sucessfully finish their studies on time must keep their mind free of financial stress as best they can.
How can you finance your studies?
Expenditures vary heavily from person to person. Your living expenses (accommodation, food and drink, transportation, communication, and your hobbies/free time) along with the costs from your studies (books, study material, Studierendenwerk fee, and administration costs) must be accounted for, which can average 750 Euro per month. This amount can rise rapidly. A lot of little things add up during your studies.
Do not worry: Your Studierendenwerk is here to assist you with all your financial needs.
Your first source should be BAföG. Half of it is a gift. The other half is an interest-free loan. At the BAföG-Amt of the Studierendenwerk we can assist you and your parents about the possibilities to receive BAföG.
Additionally to BAföG there are other financial aid possibilities that are related to or additional to BAföG.
Last but not least we have a few money saving tips which can help with dealing with the financial stress.
