Study Abroad with BAföG

Let’s get started!

Students receiving BAföG for their studies in Germany have good prospects for receiving financial assistance when studying abroad. Even if they do not receive BAföG in Germany, it may be worthwhile applying for BAföG abroad.

Students with permanent residence in the Federal Republic of Germany are eligible for funding according to BAföG for subject-related studies abroad. The same applies to internships stipulated by the study guidelines or examination regulations. However, it is not possible to simply take the financial assistance you get in Germany to another country. You need to file separate applications for financial assistance with separate BAföG offices. Please refer to the BAföG website of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research to find out which BAföG office is responsible for the country you want to study in.
