General BAföG Advice

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hard to believe but true:

Every year there is a surplus of federal funding amounting to millions of euros. The main reason for this is that many students do not apply for BAföG even though they are eligible.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

BAföG advising at our information desk informs students on how much financial aid is available to them and helps out with further BAföG queries.

The first step is to go to the Studierendenwerks information desk at Basler Straße 2, which is open Monday to Friday from 9am - 5pm. An appointment is not necessary.

You can also receive information at the BAföG-Hotline of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research under: 0800-223 63 41.

NEW: For BAföG recipients who are the first in their family to seek a university degree additional funding is available through cooperation between the Student Union and the Arbeiterkind.de initiative. Info hier
