Apply for BAföG abroad

Service Description

With the education subsidy (BAföG) you can complete a school or university education, depending on your economic background.

If you are pursuing studies, school training or an internship abroad, you can also apply for BAföG.

Funding for studies within the EU is available until graduation. If you study outside the EU, you can generally receive funding for 1 year. In exceptional cases, funding is also possible for 2.5 years. Your tuition fees and travel expenses are also taken into account in the calculation.

In principle, the following supplements to the requirement can be paid:

  • Monthly foreign supplement in case of education outside a member state of the European Union or Switzerland.
  • Tuition fees for a maximum of one year up to EUR 5,600
  • Travel expenses for a round trip within Europe EUR 250, outside Europe EUR 500 (also for an internship)
  • Health insurance (also for an internship)

The funding is basically the same as the basic funding.
The tuition fees are always paid as a non-repayable grant.
