Please note

Until further notice, the Department of Grants can only be contacted via telephone during the office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please contact your personal counsellor directly.

As the Federal Ministry of Education and Research has announced by decree, the postponement of the start of lectures has no effect on the BAföG entitlement under any circumstances. Students (no matter whether they are in their first semester or already receiving support) do not have to worry that they will not receive any money in or for April.

Our counselors and the BAföG service are available for your questions and problems concerning BAföG – from the application to the legal requirements to the repayment modalities. Your personal counselors are happy to provide information and advice and to help you with funding your studies.

Please use the form on the respective page to retrieve the contact details and telephone numbers of your BAföG counsellor. The first letter of your surname indicates which person is responsible for you. Due to the large number of applications that are currently being processed, telephone enquiries cannot be answered during office hours and on Mondays and Wednesdays.
