BAföG - why an application is worthwhile

© DSW /Jan Eric Euler

Perhaps you have been wondering if there is any point in applying for BAföG, whether it's even worth the effort, when you may not get anything, after all.

We would advise you to just do it. If you apply for BAföG, you won't end up feeling that you may have missed a great opportunity to save some money.

Your chances of getting BAföG may be larger than you think, and BAföG is an easy and beneficial way to finance your studies. While you are within the standard period of study, half of your monthly allowance is a loan on which you do not have to pay interest, and the other half is yours to keep!

The application is also fairly. Since the summer 2010, students in Bavaria have been able to hand in their application online.
