How Can I Finance My Studies?

Parents are to be seen as the most important source of funds for studying at a university. As a small compensation for the burden of financing degrees, study materials (books etc.) are tax-deductible up to a certain amount.

If parents are unable to finance a degree, the Bundesausbildungsförderung (BAföG) will usually help. Additionally, student loans are another possibility for financing your degree.

Particularly talented students with excellent study achievements can also apply for scholarships from various scholarship foundations.

As a last resort, student jobs offer the opportunity of earning money to finance studies.
