The Studierendenwerk grants bridging loans if the payment or approval of BAföG is delayed and a short-term financial emergency situation arises as a result.
This is an interest-free loan of a maximum of 600 euros per month and is usually granted for a maximum of 1-2 months. The bridging loan BAföG must be repaid in full by the student (Usually the loan amount is withheld from the first BAföG payment). A guarantor is not required.
If needed and for more information, students can contact our loan office. Contact details can be found in the info box.
The application form can also be found in the info box under Downloads.
