In addition to student loans, stipends or KfW student credit, banks offer various types of student credit. The long-term loans can help students finance their entire education.
Before students take out a bank loan, Studierendenwerk checks if students are eligible for BAföG and advise students about the different types of credit.
Since 2006, Student Services has been in partnership with KfW- Bank group. The partnership offers students advice about credit conditions and applications.
The KfW student credit eases living costs of initial student studies and is considered independently from parental income and your own income. Students can receive this in addition to BAföG.
The application is only available online. Please bring a completed unsigned application form along with valid student identification, matriculation certificate and a bankcard to Student Services. Student Services will check the application and notarise your signature.
The Federal Government offers the least expensive financial aid options.
