What is BAföG?

BAföG stands for “Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz” or – in English – the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act. The goal of BAfög is to create more equal opportunities in the German higher education system. It is a needs-based state student funding system that has been around since 1971. Thanks to BAföG, more than four million people have been able to study since 1971and today, almost one-fifth of students benefit from the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act.

If your own financial means or those of your parents, spouse or partner are insufficient for studying, you can apply for BAföG. To find out more about BAföG and how to apply, check out the links below.
